Rotary on the river

The cruisers rafted together at New Norfolk

THE Rotary Club of Moonah held its annual fundraising boat cruise on November 8 and the destination was New Norfolk. Some 160 participants – being members, supporters, sponsors and friends – gathered at the Motor Yacht Club of Tasmania at the Lindisfarne Marina for the 9am-5pm cruise on the beautiful River Derwent.

The 11 boats, heavily laden not only with people, but champagne, strawberries, gourmet food and a variety of refreshments made their way to Granton to await the “booked” opening of the Bridgewater Bridge’s lifting span.

Following lunch at New Norfolk’s Espanade, a swim by a few hardy souls and much merriment, the sailforce
made its way back down the river to comply with the re-opening of the span for the return journey. The Club has been holding the event for the past nine years, alternating the destination between Bruny Island and New Norfolk.
