Kitty McGowan Visits the GBR Region
The Super Yacht Group Great Barrier Reef had the pleasure hosting Kitty McGowan from the US Superyacht Assoc. at the Great Barrier Reef recently. Kitty toured the Great Barrier Reef Marine College, BSE Cairns Slipways and enjoyed a lunch with Captain and Chief Engineer from MY Vava II and the Captain of Plus Ultra, joined by Ports North, BSE and Carter Marine Agencies. They then all embarked on a tour of the ground breaking JCU Aquarium and then onto the gorgeous tropical vantage point of the Cairns Skyrail. McAllister's boutique brewery was an obvious hit for them next, overlooking the Cairns cane fields.
McAllister was well looked after the next day by Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina, who took her out on board MV Zulu sportsfisher to the beautiful Opal Reef for some outer reef diving and lunch. SYGGBR members were lucky enough to hear Kitty's ASMEX presentation that evening at our Nautical Nights at the Salt House, will many crew and members in attendance and a visit from Michael Healy MP.
Kitty finished her stay with another dive trip to Upolo Cay and then experienced a spectacular fresh seafood dinner at the iconic local "Prawn Star" before visiting Three Wolves boutique cocktail bar.
