It seems a while ago now but a belated happy New Year to you all. Unlike a lot of last summer we've had beautiful weather this year, providing our guests with endless opportunities to explore the local area on their boats. They are as usual are appreciative of the complimentary morning newspapers and coffees delivered to their boats and needless to say "happy hour' with complimentary cocktails is a highlight of the afternoon.

New Years Eve went off with a bang helped along with a fantastic midnight fireworks display sponsored by the Marina and Soldiers Point Holiday park located next door to the Marina.

We look forward to welcoming all our game fishers to the marina in the coming weeks for the NSWGFA Interclub, and wish them all the very best for a very successful tournament.

Hope to see you all soon and happy boating
Darrell Barnett CMM
Soldiers Point Marina Manager
