Further details will be provided for all those considering competing at this event in the near future.  Interest in this venue indicates that this is a Nationals not to be missed. The lake will be available for test sailing on the 3rd and 12th.

Included below are images taken recently during a test sail at the venue.  Conditions on 16th May were 7 - 10 knot SE breeze.

The image below is taken from immediately in front of the Club House looking East towards the public car-park and the highway.  As can be seen by the IOMs on starboard, that is the windward end of the lake in that breeze.  The PRO's will have the ability to site the Control area on any part of the lake foreshore.

 

The image below is looking SSW from about the same spot.  The bank continues to the right for 1.3 km.  That's Mt Tamborine in the distance.

 

Below image is the looking back the to Club House from where the above images were taken.  The main building with ancillary office and storage building to the left.  Toilets at the bottom front and cafe bottom right as we are looking at it.  Three of the crash-test sailors can be seen on the retaining wall, working hard on the evaluation of the water!

So mark your calendars, this is going to be a great event.
