Sail-World.com : Fun in the Sun, Chaparral style!

Fun in the Sun, Chaparral style!

'Chaparral fun in the sun!'    Chaparral Australia

Melbourne Chaparral owners have taken advantage of the record heat wave over the last few weeks to get together for a raft up in Beaumaris Bay.

Dubbed 'Chapnanigans' by the Happy Chappies social club, Chaparral owners regularly get together for a catch up and to meet other boat owners throughout the year.

'It always surprises us how many Chaparralian’s respond to a last minute call when a weather window opens up on the bay,' says Jo Manthey, the Victorian Chaparral Social club president.

'We organise all sorts of events such as dinners at Docklands, raftup’s & river cruises. We have a great network of like minded owners who enjoy each other’s company and especially enjoy their boating,' she says.

'The latest raft up had a large cross-section of boats from a 420 Premiere, Signature cruisers, a 327SSx and a bunch of smaller bowriders and H2o’s. The guys from Chaparral Australia provided a 196SSi and driver to tow tubes and skiers around all day, so it was a fun day for the kids as well, especially for some of the big kids who were seriously challenged on the ski tube!'
