Member induction – Chesne

Chesne, the Pacific Jewel

Chesne, the Pacific Jewel

As is well documented, Sydney is being pummelled on a daily basis by afternoon storms. Storm clouds roll in at about three and Mother Nature goes beserk for a couple of hours, the skies clear and the cycle starts all over again. Yesterday, the weather was just crap from the start and for some time on this journey, we were forced on to the Side of the Ferry. This was disappointing as we had an all too infrequent induction ceremony to perform. The big boats are back in town, and we had the added bonus of racing the Pacific Jewel across the Harbour, which made for spectacular backdrops to our inductee photos.

Ultimately, we made it out Back just as we sailed past the Pacific Jewel, (which really needs a scrub). So to our inductee. Chesne lives on the insular peninsula, but too far away from Manly to grace us with her presence regularly on deck – but quarterly visits have been promised. To the questions:

Favourite beverage: Veuve Clicquot
Favourite sport to spectate: AFL
Area of trivial expertise: 80s and 90s music

Ceremony conducted by Don and Bladdamasta
Post ceremony function held at 4 Pines
