Despite COVID 19, this year’s Alexander Marine Australia Whitsunday Get Together was a huge success. Though the borders were still closed and only Queenslanders could attend (other than a handful of interstate people who were in Qld before the borders were closed and have not returned to their home state) we had a great number of party people spread onboard the various boats.
This year the event was a European Beach club theme named ‘Le Club AMA’ named after the popular St Tropez beach club ‘Le Club 55’, promoting our 26R Beach Club and considering no Australian’s can currently travel to Europe at the moment we thought we would bring Europe to the Whitsundays onboard our stunning vessels.
We departed Hamilton Island just after 11am with guests onboard and headed for Cid Harbour where we met our fellow raft up participants which included the Galeon 640, Ocean Alexander 26R, our brokerage vessel 92ft Custom Long Range Expedition Motor Yacht ‘Texas T’ (kindly loaned to us as a host vessel), Palm Beach 65 ‘Rena G’ and a Cabo 52 Express ‘Chainsaw’.
There was an abundant amount of food coming out of the galley of ‘Texas T’ prepared by our Swedish Chef Mathias Andersson who has worked in Michelin star restaurants around the world (he catered for our event last year) and the drinks we were flowing with Aperol Spritzs and Malfi Italian gin on offer, guests danced the night away to the Dj’s tunes and seductive Saxophone sounds.
The event wrapped up around 7pm and all guests were returned safely to the Hamilton Island Dock.
