We're back with another great fun filled 3 days of F11 training on Pittwater with optional camping at the Basin Camp Grounds or daily arrival/departure from the Avalon Sailing Club (ASC) Clareville Beach.


  We're back with another great fun filled 3 days of F11 training on Pittwater with optional camping at the Basin Camp Grounds or daily arrival/departure from the Avalon Sailing Club (ASC) Clareville Beach.

The ASC will be our hosts for the duration of the training camp, where you can be transported to and from the training area/Basin Camp Grounds by one of the ASC support vessels by arrangement at designated times. The Flying 11 Training Coordinator will be Andrew Kendall who will oversee all arrangements for this camp (mob: 0418 651 766).  The ASC responsible parent contact will be Dave Hyde (mob: 0414 449 313) and the wonderful Vicki James (tel: 9476 4848), who will also coordinate lunch food arrangements etc.  All training will be on Pittwater with some light lunch provided by the ASC volunteers and other F11 parents over at the Basin each day. Note that Nat. Park camping fees per night are $14 per adults and $7 per child, landing fees ($3 approx.) included.  Follow this Nat. Parks link for the Basin bookings and Palm Beach Ferry information etc 
http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/NationalParks/parkCamping.aspx?id=N0019 . Their telephone contact is 9974 1011 (they will return your call eventually).

  If not camping, you will need to pay a landing fee each day to the Park Ranger, We shall arrange payment with the Nat. Parks Ranger for those who are not camping at the The Basin Camp Grounds. This landing fee covers rubbish removal and provision of all their services, so it is a fair cop if they are there to collect your money. Remember you will be seen as representatives of the Flying Eleven class so be on your best behaviour so we can return next time etc....

Our coaches for the camp will be Chappo (Andrew Chapman) - past F11 National Champ and YNSW Coach Larry Cargill. We will also have our accredited junior coaches assisting in the coaching duties during the F11 Training Camp.

For our first timers, you may wish to rig up on Clareville Beach rather than Avalon Sailing Club (most visitors do) as it is a little awkward climb down to the club decking area, and it is only a short walk to the club to check out what is happening from the nearby Clareville Beach. Parents, watch out for the parking nspectors - they bite!!!! The club and coaches will be around to inform and assist you at either location so all will be sweet.
