WATER MAR K 72 | ocean scene OCEAN Cocktails on the Wharf The scene was set on the first evening of the Sydney International Boat Show for OCEAN Cocktails on the Wharf. A couple of hundred OCEAN readers, advertisers and nautical types gathered at the OCEAN offices on the tip of Sydney's Jones Bay Wharf for a fun filled, night of celebration, champagne and thanks. The occasion, now an annual event, marked the first anniversary of the launch party for OCEAN held on the eve of last year's Sydney Boat Show. Whilst the opening day of the show had been fine and sunny, the forecast storm front arrived just prior to the first glass of bubbles being served but the rain miraculously by- passed the wharf. Very fortunate considering some of the special sights on the wharf under lights for the VIP attendees including Mercedes-Benz's ultra-luxurious Maybach and Supercar Investment's Italian supercars - the Pagani and their cute Elfin. Fifty lucky guests were collected from the boat show at Darling Harbour and cruised in style, Charles Heidsieck Champagne and beers in hand, around the harbour and to the wharf aboard luxury charter vessel Oceanos II which remained wharfside throughout the evening. A special thank you to St Arnou Beers which set up a sensational beer bar, Charles Heidsieck champagne and Brown Brothers wines. The Ocean Cocktails Bar was also a huge hit with 42 Below cocktails pouring throughout the night. OCEAN was thrilled to have had so many guests attend and indulge in the fine food, drinks and company on a night bound to be a annual party to kick off the Sydney show each year.
