The Alfreds celebrated Melbourne Cup in style with the RPAYC MOET Melbourne Cup lunch. It was a happy day. Halyards was as beautifully and colourfully decorated as the more than 160 Members and their guests who looked awesome in their Melbourne Cup outfits. Lunch started with a glass of Moet and some freshly shucked oysters, and continued with a gorgeous buffet.
The sweeps were a sell-out, and the Calcutta fiercely contested. There were loads of prizes on offer during the day which included many lucky door prizes, on-the-spot quiz prizes, and prizes for the best dressed woman, man, couple and hat; and of course the best ‘ditty’. The best ‘ditty’ competition was so close, that first prize was a tie. Prizes included magnums of Moet and very generous gifts from our supporters, who included Ocean Covers, Lacey Marine Engineering, North Shore Marine, Above and Beyond Boating, Bosuns Locker, Andersen Marine, Douglas Marine, Liz Muir Art and many others.
Looks like it will be a case of book early next year to secure a place at another fabulous RPAYC MOET Melbourne Cup Lunch.
