TMG Lagoon Escapade a great success! 1:33pm, Fri 28 Jul 2017TMG Lagoon Escapade a great success! Held at Australia's premier sailing destination, the Whitsunday Islands, the now annual event was 2 days of fun and frolics on and off the water.
Owners gathered and the sun shone from start to finish on this year's Escapade. John and the team from TMG, joined by Rowan McMahon, Queensland State Manager, Steve Austin from Yoti Multihull, and Kirsten Gillies flew up with goody bags in hand.
Attendees gathered the next day at Abell Point Marina. Welcomed by the team from TMG, they received their swag bags, including the now notorious aqua blue sunglasses. The group then met in the evening at Hemingways on the waterfront at Abel Point Marina, for welcome drinks and prizes put on by TMG and Abell Point Marina. Lucky door prizes were kindly provided by Club Marine and Lagoon Catamarans.
The following day, early risers enjoyed a scrumptious breakfast overlooking the marina, generously provided by Seven Star Yacht Transport. After a briefing from TMG, the cats mustered at the break water. They then sailed in company for the spectacular 4 hour cruise to the Cape Gloucester Beach Resort. With champagne sailing conditions all the way, 'Goonies' enjoyed the very best of Australian cruising.
Owners getting together from all walks of life is what the Lagoon Escapade is all about. This year saw live-aboards, young people, families, kids and couples joining the fun. A great group of people brought together by their shared love of Lagoon catamarans and cruising, in one of the world's most incredible locations.
An altogether awesome event finished up with a picture perfect sunset over stunning Gloucester passage, with thoughts of Escapade 2018 already in people's minds. Dates will be announced very soon - will you be there?
