Nationals for 2017


Recommended Posts

Hi All Maricaters


We were going to be having our nationals at Griffith on Lake Wyangan, however it looks like the lake will still be closed due to algal blooms, so we are looking at moving the titles to Lake Cargelligo.  Still going  to be the same weekend in Feb (25th and 26th).  Still going to be run by the Griffith Club.  Just a change of venue. Has anyone got any real objections to this.  We have already told the guys at Griffith that we will be coming to their club for the Nationals and Griffith is real keen to have us, so the right thing to do is to honour that agreement just the venue will change.  The journey time is still about the same if a little shorter.  Comments?  The majority of guys I have heard back from are saying no probs, whatever, just let us know.  Lake Cargelligo has a caravan park 2 motels and a pub, they are a town of about 1400 people.

You can comment on here or on FB, either on the maricat page or if you belong on sailing buddies.
