Accommodation options include: low cost bunk accommodation ($43 per night per person) or $68 per room per night twin accommodation (only 6 available and reserved for couples) has been organised by the ACT NS14 Association at the YMCA (see http://www.canberra.ymca...ation/Pages/default.aspx). You must notify Bill Kerrigan at email@example.com before 27th November 2015.
The YMCA Lodge is only 10 minute away from the yacht club and was a great success when the Nationals were last in Canberra in 2010.
A series of training videos have been produced featuring National Champions Peter Vaiciurgis, Tina Babbage, Hugh Tait and Tara McCall. Joined by MG National Champion Rohan Nosworthy they demonstrate both on and off the water, the many aspects of rigging, tuning and racing a NS14.
