Hi All,

I just thought I would provide some feedback on accommodation for the State Titles.

For thoese not already booked in somewhere we tried booking yesterday and we found it very hard to find either a campsite or reasonably priced unit.

we got the last campsite at Resthaven.

Make sure you organise it ASAP or you might find yourself in the back of the ute !!!

See you there !!

word of advice from the locals. REMEMBER Eagle Point. barely 5 minute drive, 2 caravan parks with cabins.
Powered campsite at my house in Eagle Point (03)51567418, and Tim can advertise his own place when he comes on.
Point being don't let accommodation be the reason you don't come we WILL sort something for anyone smile

The plan was simple.... Like my brother in law Phil, except this plan just might work!

Mitch is right I have a lot of room for camping or caravans (with power - I have extension leads) here in Eagle Point. The president wont mind sharing the facilities of the presidential holiday house. There are also some beds available.

The only accommodation close to the club is at the Old Pub.

Hi all,

just some info for things to do in the area for family and friends if they are coming or you want to encourage them along. wink

There is the local Monthly Sunday Market right across the road from the Yacht Club in the morning eek . A number of wineries around the area and a boutique brewery sick.

Also it may be possible to organise a spectator boat, if people are interested, let us know on the forum or contact me or Tim. If you haven't been before, you can't view the racing from the club, the only land based viewing area is from Raymond Island, it costs to drive over on the ferry but you can walk for nothing.

Also Simon mentioned the Curry on his last visit, I am afraid there is no caterer at the club at the moment. But we can organise a group booking at local eateries (chinese etc) all in walking distance from the club, or order in Pizzas, up to what people want to do. confused


Regards Gary.

Hi Garry,

I know Em and the kids would be keen to see the racing on the water at least for a couple of hours (before the kids loose interest). So we would be keen to maybe pitch in for something.

Thanks also for the word on the market.....Em will be very happy.....my wallet wont be !!!!!

See you down there soon !!

Hi Simon,

The Somers Yacht Club contingent barring any unforseen incidents crazy cry will be:

Matt Stone
Jeremy Pearse
Andrew Jamieson
ME. laugh

I haven't sailed/raced there since I was a kid so it will be interesting to return there. The last time I was there we camped on the foreshore and the Lightweight Sharpie crews got intoxicated and did some nasty things to the rest of the fleet in the middle of the night. blush shocked

There was also a large contingent of Rainbows so you can only guess how long ago it was. grin

Regards,


Peter

Excellent news Peter.. That's 3 new boats at the Titles...

Will it cause a shake up at the top of the table? laugh

Will the glare from all those shiny new hulls put the local boys off? crazy

Or,

Will the butt end of the fleet look smarter and more expensive than it ever has before? sick

Not many sleeps till we find out!


P.S. Heard a rumour that a regular heavyweight campaigner has organised a faster ride for the weekend???

Hi Simon,

The rumour is true. laugh

Since the back end of the fleet was abandoning their old faithful Mozzies cry and getting brand new plastic fantastics I thought I should do so as well if only for the weekend. smile It will give my old Mozzie the weekend off; she needs the rest from all the beatings I give her.

I wonder what difference 24 kg mass reduction and more buoyancy/volume below the waterline will make. Only time will tell. wink

See you on Saturday.

Regards,


Peter

You'd better start saving up then!

If you go as well on a light boat as I think you will I reckon you're going to want one!! laugh
