On The Double

Chartered: 30 Oct 2010

This was first choice of special holiday to do for my 50th. Being a sailing man this was right up my alley. We chose the CCY website purely at random and were impressed by the amount of info and ease of navigating about the webiste. Having no prior experience in bareboat chartering we chose CCY purely on the fact that we could cost up all expenses on the website and a quick call to Cumberland to chat through a few things prior.
And what a good choice it was. We arrived at Airlie Beach shortly after lunch and after a friendly welcome by the CCY staff went straight into our briefing spent the first night at the marina onboard On the Double and completed the briefing next morning then set off for Nara Inlet. Visited the aboriginal site and was amazed that people where living here when there was a land bridge to the mainland fascinating!
We only had one day of bad weather when we had to change plans but was not a biggy.
The snorkelling highlight was Manta Ray Bay and getting close and personal with the Maori Wrasse actually seems to have a bit of personality which is rather weird for a fish.
Whitehaven beach was a real treat the white powdery sand is very unique and a must to experience at once in your life. Its great to see most people respect this unspoiled spot for what it is and leave only footprints.
A pirate party was had onboard on Haloween which was a real hoot most photos are not publishable!!
The stopover at Hayman Island was very nice but pricey, and a welcome return to civilisation for the girls.
The food provisioning was absolutely marvellous, with 8 of us onboard there was never a time we went hungry and the variety was fantastic.
On the Double could have done with a slightly larger foresail to better balance her sailing, (or smaller mainsail) we found that she was better balanced with one reef in the main. But this observation comes from a very picky sailor.
All up a jolly good time was had by all especially me !
