Holidays on boats are the specialty of Sydney based Mariner Boating Holidays and several members of the Jervis Bay Cruising Yacht Club have experienced some of their offerings.


Current commodore Tony Byrnes, who has sailed with Mariner in Tonga, Thailand and Croatia has succeeded in bringing Mariner Boating Holidays to Jervis Bay as the sponsor of the 2009/10 summer series, which will be named The 2010 Mariner Boating Holidays Summer Series.


Trevor Joyce, Founder and Managing Director of Mariner Boating Holidays attended the recent JBCYC annual prize giving dinner and made the announcement to the 120 members present. “It’s really an excuse for me to come to Husky during the summer’, said Trevor during his announcement, “but I hope our association with the club might see a few more members sailing with us in the years to come”. 


Apart from arranging individually tailored bareboat charter holidays Mariner run a series of yacht rallies and two of the events that Tony has been to in the past are just over the horizon – The Kalia Cup in Tonga in October and the Phuket to Langkawi Yacht Rally in January 2010.


Both of these events offer fleets that will appeal to the multihull enthusiasts who seem to be prolific among JBCYC members. In these two destinations in particular Catamarans come to the fore with greater stability, privacy and comfort on offer in what are also perfect Cat sailing conditions; prevailing winds just forward of the beam!


There is a special discount on offer to members of the JBCYC for both of these events. If you want to discuss the details please call Trevor Joyce at Mariner Boating Holidays, telephone 99661244 or email


Details of these events and the full 2010 program can be found on
