The Pipeopener Cruise in September coincides with the Pipeopener Series, with each marking the start of the summer cruising and summer racing seasons respectively.
For the cruise, members depart in convoy late on the Friday afternoon, cruising to an overnight anchorage rendezvous point that is often determined on the day according to weather and tidal conditions.
Wherever the vessels ultimately tie up, one thing is guaranteed: a good time will be had by all. Members like nothing more than to spend time in each other’s company, sharing conversation, fine wine and good food. After a wonderful weekend away, everyone makes their leisurely way back to Hobart on the Sunday with many happy memories to kick start the season.
