Mastercraft Wakeboard boats
MasterCraft has been shaping the boating industry since 1968. More than four decades after the original MasterCraft made its debut, our goal remains the same - to continue building the world's best ski, wakeboard and luxury performance powerboats, year after year.  
Wakeboarding is a surface water sport which involves riding a wakeboard over the surface of a body of water. It was developed from a combination of water skiing, snowboarding, and surfing techniques.

The rider is usually towed behind a motorboat, typically at speeds of 30–40 km/h (18-25 mph), depending on the board size, rider's weight, type of tricks, and rider's comfort. This speed could also depend on the year, make, and model of the boat because some boats, which are not designed for wakeboarding, create a different size wake which the rider may not feel comfortable with. But a wakeboarder can also be towed by other means, including closed-course cable systems, winches, and personal water craft.

Wakeboarding is organized by the International Waterski and founded in 1946 (renamed from International Waterski Federation inВћ 2009) and the World Skiboard Association founded in 1989 and then renamed World Wakeboard Association (WWA) founded in 1993. The IWWF has been recognized by the International Olympic Committee as an official partner since 1967. Wakeboarding has been part of the World Games since 2005, in the trend sports category. The WWA is the global leader in wake sport sanctioning; this non-profit organization focuses on the progression and advancement of wake sports world wide. (1)

The WWA sanctions over 400 days of wakeboarding, wakeskating and wakesurfing events each year and in April Renmark hosted Australia’s best Wakeboarders in South Australia’s part of the Murray River for the 2015 Nationals. Renmark has hosted the Wakeboard Australia Nationals twice in the last 10 years and with the course right in front of Club Renmark, this luxurious location for the 2015 Wakeboard Australia Nationals gains in popularity each year. 

The last few years have cemented Australia as the home for the best wakeboarding talent in the world and MasterCraft team riders Harley Clifford and Tony Iacconi dominate the world’s best behind a mighty MasterCraft XSTAR.

Macquariedale Organic Wines
Our passion is making beautiful wine grown Biodynamically to harvest the unique flavours of the Hunter Valley.”

We started Macquariedale back in the early 1990’s as an escape out of the Sydney corporate world. Derice and I (Ross McDonald) started the dream with an acre or so of Shiraz and Chardonnay close to the Hunter River at Branxton.  From those early steps a fully Certified Organic/Biodynamic vineyard has evolved at Sweetwater Rd, Rothbury, being in the Lower Hunter winegrowing region.
The vineyards now comprise of approximately 15ha which are home to outstanding Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Semillon, Chardonnay and Verdelho.  We also have a small plot of Pinot Noir which is just coming into maturity.  Derice, our children and I have immersed ourselves in country life and live  sustainably producing garlic, olives and olive oil and beef cattle, as well as growing vegetables and many varieties of fruit.

Following our natural winemaking passion, our small sustainable winery specialises in converting small parcels of grapes into the most delicious natural wines available in Australia.

We developed a Wine Club – Savour Life Club – to be able to share our wines with Members who also love beautiful wine and appreciate sustainble life.  Our wines can also be sourced through independent speciality bottleshops and fine local restaurants.
Background on our Vineyards and Winery
As the organic/biodynamic approach has taken hold we have found that our adjacent neighbours in Sweetwater Rd have taken the plunge and joined into our Biodynamic Certification.  This evolution has enabled Macquariedale to expand our range of varieties and to be more self sufficient with our grape supply.  We anticipate that this cooperation will extend to other local vineyards who wish to follow this sustainable path.  The grape varieties that we have in our vineyards were first planted in 1999 are the most successful varieties grown in this region and have a long history of producing outstanding wines in the Hunter regional style.
