SAILING INTO 2014
December 11, 2013
The annual Tobias Partners staff Christmas lunch is always a fun filled, casual-chic affair – and a great opportunity to sit back, relax and simply chat as a team. And what is more quintessentially a Sydney Noël, than a long leisurely lunch on a classic wooden craft? Nothing really – except perhaps catering by Guillaume Brahini, the former chef of the Opera House restaurant that traded under his first name. (Guillaume will open his new restaurant, in Paddington in April next year.)It was Guillaume and is partners who lent us their extremely elegant 1960s Rybovich fishing trawler – and kept the festive fare circulating; so a big Thank You to Guillaume! Boarding at Rose Bay jetties, we ambled up the Paramatta River then out towards the Heads, passing (purely by coincidence, promise!) cruised past Tobias Partners houses at Double Bay, Rose Bay, Vaucluse… and of course, the landmark Altona property, where we shall break ground early next year. To prove it’s not all about work, we kept on drinking up at the wharf side Sailors’ Club in Rose Bay. It seems some seats are still vacant in the studio today. We would like to wish our clients, consultants, builders and friends all the best for the new year 2014 and a wonderful sun filled summer.
