Lagoon get together Lake Macquarie Australia

Hello all,
here in Australia we have a Facebook group called Lagooned in Oz. It is a closed group of Lagoon owners open to those in Australia and New Zealand who either own a Lagoon or about to purchase a Lagoon.
While the local Lagoon distributer here in Australia does a brilliant job of marketing, selling and supporting the brand sometimes Lagoon owners are unable to get to the more distant locations for the formal events. In this case the Facebook group are having a very informal get together of Lagoons from the 22nd February to the 24th February 2019 on Lake Macquarie in New South Wales here in Australia.
Even if you are not a Facebook member but on the Lake at that time it would be great to get to see fellow Lagoon owners at the get together. While we will be sailing the destinations will also be able to be reached by car as well for owners who cant bring their boat along.
For those that are unaware the Lake is open to the sea with the access being relatively straight forward. Most comment on entering the Lake that they had no idea how large the lake was (160 KM around the foreshore) and what a great cruising ground it is. The get together is a great excuse to come and explore our wonderful backyard and have a bit of fun at the same time.

Re: Lagoon get together Lake Macquarie Australia

Is the FB group open to Aussies that don't yet happen to be back in Aus yet ?

Heading that way, but still sailing thru the Med, with Atlantic in Nov.

Regards

Mark.

Re: Lagoon get together Lake Macquarie Australia

Hello all, well our little Lagoon get together was very successful. The overcast sky's, showers and strong winds deter not deter our intrepid group of Lagoon owners who arrived at Styles Point on the Friday.
In all ten Lagoons were in attendance with another six owners arriving by car. Represented were a Lagoon models L 470, L39, L400, L38, L420, L450 , L42 and our own Lagoon 440. Our meet and greet on the foreshore that afternoon was a great affair and we knew everyone was having a good time when the rain started but no one left. Fortunatley it was a breif shower and the conversations continuned well into the evening.
The following Saturday morning it had been arranged for everyone to raise anchor at 10am and then form a circle for a bit of a photo shoot. Some very good photographs and drone footage were takan not only from the boats but form curious onlookers from on shore. A very brisk sail was then had by all as the 20 knot wind from the SE came in. It was a spectacular sight to see the boats under sail in such conditions.
Ultimatley we anchored off a very pretty park in Bonnels Bay where our land crew had set up the BBQ and chairs. Once again all the crews enjoyed a very relaxing and fun time on shore with plenty of food and liquid refreshment for everyone. It was great to see the kids on several of the boats also enjoying themselves and being part of the event.
While the weather threatened we were fortunate that no rain came until eveyone was well and truly ensconched back on their boats. While this was a very informal get together it was great to see the Australian agent for Lagoons, The Multihull Group, send some representation which was well recieved by everyone knowing they are still very supportive in assisting Lagoon owners regardless of the age of thier vessel
Our get togethers are not formal events and relies totally on a hard core group of owners arranging everything. To everyone involved and you know who you are, A big thank you to each and everyone of you. Your efforts are appreciated by all those who attend.

Re: Lagoon get together Lake Macquarie Australia

Hello all, great little video of our get together has been put together by the local Lagoon importers "The multihull group". If you go into their site and go into the heading events the video is a great little memory of the day.
