Ever heard about the dog pirates of Surry Hills? Rumour has it they’re cutthroat rankings buccaneers.

Christmas, chicken & a catamaran called Obsession...

Just kidding – we’re not lame enough to write an entire blog post about fictitious search engine pirates…or are we?

Who knows. But, onto the important issue – reporting on our timely January Christmas Party!

We did go out on a boat last Friday – a catamaran called Obsession, to be precise.

The sun blessed us with mid-thirties radiance, and with a decent amount of wind out on Sydney Harbour, our vessel’s sails made use in full bloom, the twin hulls carving greenery blue.

We left from Woolloomooloo Wharf and prioritised finding a secluded beach to anchor and barbecue some of Gary’s home-recipe marinated chicken.

On the down-low, the chicken was delicious – can’t be stroking egos too much as the man’s just been on TV…

Great company, great music & royal spreads

We demolished a hefty lunch of chook, salads, nuts, beers and homemade Viking mead (no joke), so our noble captain steered the boat toward an outcrop of rocks – a place some of the more exaggerative of us noted as a ‘cliff jump’.

I say that somewhat sarcastically because it was only around 10 feet high, but to be fair, the landing zone was dicey at best.

At the same time, there were a few lines cast into the water and we actually hauled in the world’s biggest ever invisible fish!

I say this with utmost sincerity: it was borderline mind-altering being on Sydney Harbour on such a beautiful day.

It’s a transformative experience seeing our beautiful city from that perspective and sharing it with great company, eargasmic music and a royal spread of food. The drink is a rare pleasure that very few on this earth are lucky enough to appreciate.

After some super-relaxing 4-5 hours on MSY Obsession, we cruised back to Woolloomooloo wharf…


The festivities didn’t stop there, though. If you know the Woolloomooloo area, you’re probably aware of an awesome establishment down there called The Tilbury.

It’s a relaxed but lively cross between a lounge, pub, bar and music venue – an LPBV, if you will – which serves cocktails, beers, craft beverages and, of course, delicious water and soft drinks.

We posted up on the balcony for the night and spent the better part of 7 hours being the most interesting, funny, best dressed and generally coolest group in the whole place. Even though we turned up in board shorts, salt-crusted shirts and ‘wind hair’ – similar to what I imagine a motley crew of sun-kissed coconut technicians would look like.

While it was a little late, it was a Christmas celebration we’ll remember fondly.
