On 14th October, about 200 Rovers and friends gathered at the Commissioner’s Stairs in Circular Quay in preparation for another fantastic Turramurra Harbour Cruise!
With this year’s theme being “Masquerade”, the most common thing heard all night was, “Oh, I didn’t recognise you under the mask!” And what masks they were. The three storey cruise ship was a sea of glitter, feathers and sequins, dotted with islands of attention seekers, including the Phantom, a towel wrapped day-spa guest, a blood-drenched Jason, Zorro and even a Transformer.
This year was the first time that Turramurra has organised a DJ and live entertainment, which went down with the revellers even better than the icy cold beverages. Jerky kept the crowd entranced with their bluegrass brilliance, featuring Cam Wheatley (Epping Rovers) on the guitar and harmonica, and Simon Mould (also Epping Rovers) on the banjo… guitar… ukelele and even the fiddle. They were followed onto the stage by Sydney North event “repeat offenders” Aerobi, who again brought their blend of Shirt Rock / Post-Pop Academic Funk to the party, including Zorro (Dom Warland from Turramurra) on the drums. Spesh from MtColah/Mt K kept the crowd pumping for the rest of the night with his ever impressive DJ skills.
Awards for Best Dressed went to Candis (Blaxland Kalangadoo Crew) for her Steam-Punk inspired gown and mask, and Jean-Luc (2nd Baulkham Hills) for his bowler hat, walking stick, fancy coat and waist-coat combination.
Thanks again Turramurra Rovers for another year of water-borne fun!
