Can anyone local recommend a suitable spot for some TI sailing around NSW,
drivable from Sydney at Easter ?
Anywhere where we could rent a house for the weekend, and preferably launch in front of the property onto water (failing that, a nearby boat ramp).
Nice places to stop, beaches, have lunch or camp would also be great.
Below are the places I've thought about so far. Note I've been to Lake Macquarie once before (Wangi) but would prefer Jervis Bay or Forster this time.
Any suggestions on specific places/areas to stay and where to launch/sail to,
greatly appreciated. thanks.
It's a pity our Gippsland Lakes are too far away for you. It's a fantastic location in every aspect! It would be a perfect location for a Worldwide Hobie AI/TI gathering that could include extensive camping trips, races and social events to match.
Broughton Island is part of the Myall Lakes National Park. ChrisJ, Stringy, Slaughter & myself had a memorable camping trip to Esmeralda Cove a few years back, departing from Nelson Bay.
We also had a great camping trip down to Jervis Bay. We set up a base camp in Honeymoon Bay which is open to the public on weekends and public hols.
The great thing about our Gippsland Lakes is the free facilities and it's never too busy or crowded - if you know your way around and avoid the usual tourist hotspots.
