Checking in at the legendary Percy Island Yacht Club - 2020 Ep 11 – Another Barrier Reef Paradise


Location: Great Barrier Reef
Latitude: -18.29000000
Longitude: 147.70000000
Published: 1 Jan 2021

After a relaxing stop on our Whitby 42 ketch in the Duke Island Group, we sail to Middle Percy Island, THE must visit destination high on all Australian cruisers' bucket list and check out the iconic ‘Percy Island Yacht Club’ A-Frame. Visiting yachties have been leaving their mark at the Great Barrier Reef paradise for decades with thousands of pieces of sailing memorabilia now displayed in the hut. Karen first visited the island as a child and has vivid memories of stories told to her by Andy Martin, the legendary lease holder who established Middle Percy as a cruiser’s haven through his hospitality over 32 years on the island. During this stay, she was delighted to meet Andy’s niece, Cate, at the island’s homestead and reminisce about those times.
In ‘Our Galley’ Karen shows you how to whip up a delicious meal of Mediterranean Inspired Mackerel Fillets in just minutes.
