On a glorious evening in Sydney, Back of the Ferry completed its first induction for 2014. The Harbour was heaving with all sorts of boats including 2 cruise liners, armadas of yachts and the odd tall ship. This correspondent had spent the afternoon on a luxury motor cruiser, which allegedly cost $6,500 an hour to rent, but despite the offer of a cab home – the lure of the Manly Gerry was too hard to resist. You can never spend too much time on Sydney Harbour, plus we had an induction ceremony to perform.
Anita’s induction included pre and post ceremonies – the beer purchase at Mr Liquor, a pre at Young Alfred’s when the ferry was delayed by one of the aforementioned Cruise liners blocking Circular Quay and a 4 Pines frothie at the end. The main game, however is always on the Back and Anita responded to the usual interrogation as follows:
Favourite beverage: Tanqeray Ten and tonic
Favourite sport to spectate: Rugby Union (especially the Lions)
Area of Trivial Expertise: Geography
Go to beer: A British Bitter
The induction ceremony was witnessed by Bladdamasta and John
