As promised I'm kicking off this post to alert folk to the most pressing issue around this event which is accommodation.
I've spoken to several of the major accommodation centres and unfortunately can't give you any good news. As I suggested, Port Vincent is a 'resort town' and at this time of year the population increases by about 500%!!
The best advice I've been given for all visitors is to get onto
Country Getaways - http://www.countrygetaways.info/component/ezrealty/results/10
Accommodation on Yorkes - http://www.accommodationonyorkes.com.au/holiday/Availability
And try to book something as best as you can.
The best bets will be units and holiday houses.
or if there's a group that like each others company - Tuckerway Hostel http://portvincent.org.au/accommodation-dining/tuckerway-hostel/
• Tuckerway Hostel can host indoor campers and outdoor campers in a bush setting. Full catering is available (additional fees apply).
Indoor accommodation is available for 59 people in a variety of rooms. The main building has a commercial kitchen with all cooking utensils and crockery provided. There is a large dining area with tables and chairs.
I have been told that some accommodations take 10 year bookings!
Good luck with your ringing around.
Finally, please get onto the club facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/Port-Vincent-Sailing-Club-176905519050223/?ref=hl
I'll set up an event page and put out as much info as possible via that medium. It will also be easy for all to share info with the Mozzy FB page.
Thanks Rye! Hope to see you all again in 12 months.
