LIVING THE RIVIERA DREAM DAVID AND LIS PATON - THREE YEARS CRUISING TASMANIA Cruising initially from South East Queensland, David and Lis Paton have been enjoying the enchanting waters of Tasmania since 2015, spending up to four months at a time on board their Riviera 53 Enclosed Flybridge Pascua Lama. “About half our time on board is spent with friends,” says David. “It gives them an opportunity to view this magical island from a perspective they would never normally have, one that we have had the joy of experiencing over and over again. And we never tire of any part of it.” David and Lis will share their fascinating experiences with Riviera and Belize owners during their “Living The Riviera Dream” presentation onboard the Riviera Motor Yacht Club on Friday, May 24. They will discuss passage making, meal planning and preparation, heavy weather navigation lessons learned as well as the many surprises and delights of Tasmanian waters. “It does demand a strong sense of independence and a great deal of preparation,” says David.. “Whatever may go wrong you need to be prepared and able to fix yourself.”

Among their many adventures, David and Lis will describe their voyage to Tasmania and then into Hobart through the Denison Canal, meeting “literally thousands of dolphins” in Wineglass Bay and battling five to six metre swells off the south coast as they made their way to Port Davey on the west coast. The return for their efforts was enormous. “Magnificent views, great adventures and fantastic fishing,” says David. Date - Friday, May 24, 1.30pm to 2.30pm Riviera Motor Yacht Club
