30th Birthday Bonanza bows out with a bang

2015 Club Marine Magazine 30th Birthday Bonanza
It’s hard to believe that Club Marine Magazine’s 30th anniversary year is already over … and with it, we’ve given away the last of the fabulous prizes in our whopper 30th Birthday Bonanza prize pool.

Club Marine subscriber Vince Sutherland, of the ACT, was a little puzzled when we first called, as he had just weeks earlier insured his new boat with Club Marine and taken out a subscription to the magazine. The bewilderment soon turned to excitement, though, when he realised he had won a five-night trip for two to New Caledonia, courtesy of promotional partner Queensland Yacht Charters (a member of Dream Yacht Charter).

“We had just bought a boat and taken the insurance out on Christmas Eve, so I was wondering why Club Marine was calling so soon into the New Year … what a nice surprise! This is my first exposure to Club Marine and I’ve already scored a holiday!

“And to top it off, it happens to be our 40th wedding anniversary, so this wonderful trip will certainly feature in the celebrations,” said Vince.

The Sutherlands will soon be sailing the balmy waters of New Caledonia’s lagoons aboard a luxurious, fully equipped Dream Yacht Charter catamaran, dining on delicacies purchased with $500 spending money supplied by Club Marine Magazine.

“We never even dreamed of going to New Caledonia … it sounds like such a beautiful, romantic place to escape to. My wife Sheryn is very excited and is already planning our trip! Thanks for the opportunity, Club Marine!”

We’ve also given away a Sea-Doo Spark PWC, with David Black, of Victoria, the happy winner of the last of three Sparks up for grabs in our 30th Birthday Bonanza.

“Thank you very much for the surprise phone call! You really caught me by surprise with your wonderful news – I wasn’t expecting to win anything, and now there’s a new PWC coming our way … thank you so much, Club Marine!”

While David and his wife Geri (pictured, left) enjoy the cruising lifestyle aboard their powerboat as often as time permits, they’re now looking forward to some action on their new Sea- Doo.

Special thanks go to our 30th Birthday Bonanza promotional partners, who helped make our anniversary year extra special by providing the fabulous prizes won by our subscribers over the year.
