Please note: Preferred contact method is to email Mark directly, not through Meetup.
We are a long-established sailing group run by the YHA. We hold sailing weekends every 4 weeks where we get at least 10 regular members attending (who don't RSVP on Meetup) plus a number who contact us through Meetup. So far we have 14 people attending the 6 April weekend so it will be a good crowd.
You probably saw the Australian Olympic sailors flying along in the wind. This is what catamaran sailing is like..leaning out the side of boat attached to a trapeze harness. An exhilirating feeling ! Come and be part of it ! Or just chill out with a leisurely sail on the trimaran.
We drive to a caravan park on Lake Macquarie where we rig the boats. We sail on Saturday 6th April, camp Saturday night at the caravan park, then sail on Sunday. No sailing experience is necessary. Come along for our seventh weekend of the summer.
Bookings are essential. When you RSVP please include your contact email address and phone number. Or email Mark directly (on [masked]) with these details, or phone me on [masked]. I will send you directions and further information.
Cost is $ 55 for sailing and $ 13 for camping. Cabins are available if booked far enough ahead.
Our group has a 4-person catamaran and a smaller one excellent for people wanting to learn. Ths weekend one of our members is bring his trimaran which is perfect for lazing about. We have experienced sailors who are always pleased to teach basic skills.
