“Careels in Canberra”. 10th-11th Nov.2018.

This note is to advise & get you thinking about your attendance at Lake Burley Griffin for both Championship & Muster reasons in a little less than 12 months’ time.
Just how often do you get the opportunity to say you’ve raced/cruised on LBG right in the middle of our National Capital ? Well, the CCYA is pleased to announce that its been able to secure the CYC (Canberra Yacht Club) to host our next National & NSW Championship events for both C18 & C22 classes. Full details will later be provided in a formal NOR plus Entry however, currently the dates, location & a bit of info are being furnished for your consideration & knowledge.
It is envisaged that a couple of days will be added to either side of the above dates to allow for some cruise/sightseeing activity plus provide practise time for the competitor. However, to assist you with your future plans at this stage please note that if desired arrangements have been made for any Careel member/s to camp on their boat in Lotus Bay, Yarralumla adjacent to the club where an excellent boat ramp is available. Careel members will be afforded usage of CYC facilities including restaurants, bars & other amenities. Importantly, know that when we each arrive at the venue an ‘Application for Boat Permit Form’ from National Capital Authority (NCA) will need & must first be completed to gain approval from the authority & avoid penalties. The Permit forms will be available from the CYC & do allow for boat /motor use on LBG at no charge so long as you are part of our approved event.

Some of the primary reasons for the move to the Nov. date & the ACT location are:
A. The ACT is an easily travelled to destination from all east coast States & offers a great opportunity to promote Careel at a terrific venue that hasn’t seen Careels in numbers for quite some years.
B. The weather should be most pleasant at that time being midway between the Oct. long w/end & Christmas. We should be therefore without cold or blustery westerlies that one could have reasonably expected in Sept. had we held the event then.
C. Canberra offers plenty of attractions on the occasion & our numbers won’t be hampered by the likes of busy School Holidays, Bathurst Car Races &/or Footy Grand Finals.

I’m excited. Canberra has more attractions than you could poke a stick at. War memorial, Mount ainslee, black mountain, national art gallery, national museum, national science centre, national bloody everything, Parliament House old and new, more eateries per capita than anywhere...
