F11 BASIN TRAINING CAMP - 12th to 14th OCTOBER
Information and on-line application form are now up and running for the 3 day Flying Eleven Training Camp...........
12th - 14th OCTOBER 2007 F11 TRAINING CAMP - BASIN CAMPING GROUNDS
Here are some of the details of the F11 training camp organised for the Friday 12th through Sunday 14th October and you will need to complete the on-line Application and Indemnity Form and make payment by Tuesday 9th October so we can arrange for the appropriate support personnel and boats, and most importantly arrange and purchase enough food to feed you all whilst camping at the Basin.
This camp is a live-in camp, where you will need to provide your own camping equipment. The Association will cater for you all and cook your meals (BBQs of course) but you will need to bring such things as plates and utensils. Most of you will have camped before so you will have an idea of what to bring. If in doubt, contact us firstname.lastname@example.org or 0409 884 380.
BUT, just to help you with the idea, here are some suggestions;
- don't bring everything you own but it is very important that you have some warm dry clothes to get into after training each day - tracksuits are pretty handy.
- small tent for you to share with your crew or with your like gendered friend/parent etc. If any problems, email us and and we will find a solution.
- sleeping bags are the go, not donas!
- notebooks and pencils/pens
- bring a towel
- shoes for walking and play
- maybe a frisbee or ball (coordinate with others)
The cost of the whole shebang is only $105, which will include your camping fees, your food - breakfast, lunch, dinner and marshmallows for night-time fire gazing - your training fees and an entry fee to the Avalon Sailing Club's Sunday Race. This whole package is pretty cheap so don't expect Duck a l'Orange and Truffles, but decent, healthy fare will be provided.
You are not marooned - there is a ferry that goes back and forth to Palm Beach (see timetable and costs), but all departures will be at a need to make basis and will require some supervision as we are responsible for you whilst you are on this camp. Don't expect the support vessels to be your ferry.
There will be other activities run by our coaches - not just sail training as we hope to have a bit of fun as well as some hard work. The coaching will include quite a bit of strategic and tactical analysis so bring some notebooks and pencils/pens to take notes.
Coaches will expect to have you at Clareville Beach by 9am. Rig up asap and we will arrange to take your cradles, camping gear and clothes etc over via our support vessels and tenders. Parents are asked to assist where possible to help with the loading process whilst the crews rig their boats. We want you over at the Basin by 10am to start training by 10:30am if possible so there is not much time to much around.
The coaching is coordinated by Joe Turner and includes David O'Connor and Paul MacKenzie, all F11 gurus and reports will be made on each of the crews participating. There will be activities other than sailing during the camp, with an emphasis being placed on strategy and tactics during your training sessions.
The Avalon Sailing Club this year has 20odd boats sailing each Sunday and they have invited all boats doing this camp to join in the race on the Sunday 14th Oct. Avalon Sailing Club has adopted the HOST CLUB responsibility for this camp and will be providing much of the support on and off the water. Some parents will be supervising the live-in arrangements whilst you are camping at the Basin, so no shenanigans are expected or to any extent tolerated - get it!We expect all crews to be fine examples of the Association whilst there, and we know you will have a ball.
PARENTS WELCOMED TO BASINParents are encouraged to camp at the Basin during this training event. In order for this programme to work, we require some parents Friday and Saturday night to camp over and help in the role of supervising our kids. Let us know what you can do as the Association mob have a lot on their plate already and we want this to work first time up without making it a burden on anyone.
Have fun and see you there,
