Well, the weather might not have been tropically warm but it was still a great weekend with 50 people and 18 boats turning out to party. Read More

Dates: 2 – 3 April 


  • Melbourne City Marina Docklands

About this Cruise:

Summer might be over, but winter is not here yet … It’s Island Time!

So, pull out your colourful Hawaiian shirts, sarongs and flower leis. We’re planning a Luau for the Saturday night at Docklands. The night will be casual but full of fun, food and music. Bring your ukulele, show off your hula skills or share your favourite Tropical Punch recipe.

Bring your drinks to the Marina lounge at 17:00 and dinner will be served from 18:00

Join us at Melbourne City Marina for a night or two enjoying Docklands and the CBD with fellow SYC cruisers. The Recreational Boating Committee will organise a get together for Saturday night but you are free to do your own thing during the day. Normally we like to book out a whole pier for SYC use, but this year MCM is doing maintenance on their other Pontoon, so they cannot accommodate a full booking out of the West Pontoon. 

SYC has booked the remaining berths on the West Pontoon, and should be able to accommodate about 12-15 boats. Please confirm your registration not later than 25 March. 

Once confirmed, the cost for the Saturday berth will be billed to the SYC member account for each skipper along with a $20/person charge for those attending the dinner.

Members unable to cruise that weekend, or to secure one of the limited berths, are also definitely welcome to join the dinner on Saturday night. Please use the same Registration Link and select the Meal Only option and tell us how many will be joining you. 

Why not extend your stay and enjoy more of what the CBD and Docklands have to offer by adding on the Friday night or Sunday night? You can book extra nights directly with the marina. Tell them that you are on the Docklands Autumn Cruise with SYC and, while not guaranteed, they will try to assign berths so that you do not have to move between days.

Please register early to help us organise berths and dinner plans, registrations will close 25 March.

We hope that you can join us for what is a fun weekend with some great food and even better company.
