Boating on the Broadwater

Thursday 20 August 2015

Fine and mainly cloudy and a temperature in the low 20s.

We met Brendan and Lyn at the Southport Yacht Club for a trip on the Broadwater on their boat - No Regrets - a twin engine cruiser. We headed out through the Gold Coast Seaway for a view of Surfers Paradise from the water. The sea was a little lumpy so we headed back to calmer waters and anchored near Wave Break Island for lunch and a couple of drinks. It was Brendan's birthday, but we did not realise until we were on board his boat - Happy Birthday Brendan!

The Broadwater and the Seaway were busy with boats putting marker buoys in place for the weekends XCAT boat racing. As we headed back into the Marina berth we passed a prawn trawler heading out for a night's fishing.
