CLUB MARINE Geographe Bay Raceweek is fast approaching and on the social side of things Port Geographe Marina and The Deck Marina Bar Restaurant have some exciting social activities planned for everyone's entertainment and enjoyment.


The new stage structure overhanging the marina wall in front of the marina office will host all the social activities including:

  • the official regatta opening & closing.
  • all the daily race results & pennant presentations.
  • most of the nightly musical entertainment.

Here you will be able to rock the night away or enjoy a beer and a chat with your fellow sailors under a shade umbrella close to the outside bar.

To help sustain the crew and get everyone up and going each day we will have on site:

  • Busselton Sea Rescue on breakfast duty.
  • Coffee van.
  • Fresh fruit van.
  • Pre ordered lunches available each morning for crews to pick up & take out sailing.
  • Fast food available on your return from sailing.
  • The Deck with a range of quality food available for those who would like to sit down & enjoy a meal with their fellow sailors.

The Social Program includes:

Sunday:   Official Opening of the Regatta & DJ Music from the Marina Stage.

Monday:   Race results & Live Music on the Marina Stage.

Tuesday:   We have a ticketed "Ladies Luncheon" for all the ladies who are not out sailing around the bay. This event will be compared by a celebrity guest speaker and the ladies will enjoy a two course luncheon with champagne on arrival plus a quality fashion parade. On the Marina Stage we will have some live music to help you rock the evening away.

Wednesday:   Will see another successful "Burlesque Cabaret" in The Deck dining area so don't forget to dress up and be part of the fun. Talk to Nigel Chesterfield-Evans for any dress code advice.

Thursday:   We have planned an exclusive "Skippers & Navigators Dinner" with a limited number of places available so it will a case of be quick or miss out. Those attending will enjoy a three course meal and some magical live entertainment from an international artist.
