Blue bottles have been washing up on our coastal beaches by the bucket loads recently. With their annual arrival, many questions and myths about these creatures seem to be drifting around as well.

What exactly are blue bottles? Do you really pee on their stings? How do you keep a day at the beach from turning into a real pain?

The unexpected happened in the sleepy NSW South Coast village of Mollymook.

A massive upset occurred at the Mollymook Boat carnival.

Approximately 80 boat crews assembled at Mollymook on this lovely spring day with a decent surf rolling. Expectations were high for the experienced Mollymook Male Vets boat crew to do exceptionally well if not win their division, especially when the punters took into effect the number of times this Male Vets crew had won medals at the NSW State and National Championships.

No-one expected a ‘Brexit’ / ‘Trump’ moment (when the totally unexpected happens) at this boat carnival. However against all odds the Mollymook Ladies Vet crew pulled off the nigh impossible. They drew the toughest heat of five crews that included the all conquering Mollymook Male Vets. Getting off to a reasonably even start the Mollymook Male Vets crew turned for home at the cans slightly ahead of the female crew. Under pressure, the male crew climbed onto a wave that would have given them a clear edge, only to come unstuck big time and see the female crew cruise on by.

Mollymook Golf Club runner away winner: The golf club was a buzz! Big John completed 18 holes without swearing or doing his nana. John scored 45 points in the weekly club stapleford round.   To explain this amazing score: Regardless of your handicap, 36 points on a par 72 course is equal to your handicap. Therefore the difference over or under 36 points is the difference over or under your actual handicap. John’s amazing round of golf was 9 under his handicap.

The Sweep utters an expletive     ………..

mollymook,Mollymook Ladies Boat Crew,beach,surf club,ocean swimmers

   …..   that was the ‘cue’ to brace yourself for the unknown.

.

Unlike most other days training in the harbour, the sweep chose the surf for this training day after considering they have their first competition this Saturday at the Mollymook Surf Boat Carnival.

It was relatively calm as they took off from shore, the girls were at peace and filled with enthusiasm as they began to power their way through the shore break …… then their ‘gentlemanly’ sweep uttered an expletive ‘sh.t’. Simone recalls that with our backs to the oncoming waves we have no idea what lies ahead. But when we here an expletive uttered we brace our selves for the unknown or as Simone recorded on Facebook: “What happens when the sweep yells ‘SH.T’, we went missing for a bit. … what a way to start the day. Sun, fun, friends and adrenaline”.

Victorian guests from St Kilda enjoyed a wonderful couple of weeks in Mollymook. Their high lights were the accommodation at Mollymook Beach Waterfront and lunch at the Rick Stein restaurant.

Regarding their Wednesday lunch special at Rick Steins for $70 / head for three courses. Leah wrote she “Felt very privileged to be able to take up the 3 course lunch offer at Rick Stein’s Restaurant. The food was superb each of the courses I ordered had something a little different and extra special to excite the eyes and taste buds. The new decor is also worth noting, tastefully coloured, modern and comfortable. All these elements where supported by great service and attention to detail which made for a wonderful afternoon.” Brian added, “The food was great, as was the service, and in a great location”.
