Little Harbour to Ben Eoin

Keith cooked a wonderful breakfast and we made tracks so we would have some time in Sydney. What a great day for a sail. The winds were behind us so we set the spinnaker and broke speed records all the way to Ben Eoin Yacht Club.  
The Ben Eoin YC is an economic renewal  project, winning 4 million in grant money five years ago. It is run buy a board and is none profit. This year they collected $40,000 from sponsors for their learn to sail and junior programs, any money left over is spent on property upgrades and equipment. They rent there upper lounge for weddings and are working towards a restaurant to compliment the bar. Everything is open to the community residents.  
Jack, one of the club members drove us to the airport to pick up a rental car. We went into Sydney for diner and a movie before heading back to the airport to pick up Terry at midnight.
