Relay for Life - Raft Up Party

On Sunday, June 14, there was an event at Blake Sea organised for the benefit of the Sail for Life, as part of Relay for Life of SL activities.

There were quite a few participants, some dancing on the raft with the DJ booth, manned by DJ G Winz who kept the party going for hours, with his eccletic and entertaining music mix.

A lot of people sailed in on their boats, forming a circle around the central raft.

The purpose of the event was to raise funds for Relay for Life. The way to do it was through "Bid Me Bald", explained in the information notecard: "Bid Me Bald was created by Trader Whiplash and the Relay Rockers team in 2007. The team had promised to go bald with Trader if he lost his hair during his treatment for leukaemia. Trader suggested instead that a fund raising event be created where people could honour survivors by allowing themselves to be "Bid Bald."

My little group of people gathered on Duncan's boat, which quickly turned into a mini Pride event.

As the night fell and the event ended, we were joined by G Winz, and went for a cruise.

After all the partying and sailing through the night, it was lovely to see the sunrise.
