2012-2013 Nationals at Lake Cootharaba

29/12/2012 – 03/01/2013 all-day
Lake Cootharaba Sailing Club
Boreen Parade
Boreen Point QLD 4565

Hi all National E Sailors,

All is on target for the Lake Cootharaba Nationals this year.

The dates, start Saturday 29th December, finish Thursday 3rd of January and the format have been confirmed, camping has been booked on the lakes edge, arrangements have been made for the Welcome and Presentation Nights,  prizes have been decided and Emily Jones has agreed to wow us with a stunning T shirt design. All we need now is for you to make a commitment to sailing at this great location. Please look at the attached NOR or go to the website http://www.nationale.org.au/wp/ to see the NOR.

Here are the accommodation options.

Please take special note of the fact that the National Executive has booked camping on the lake’s edge at the Boreen Point Campground. If you want to camp there then contact our Treasurer, Brian Clarke directly.

Act Now. As it is a holiday area I’d advise you to make enquiries ASAP.

http://bpre.net.au/p17.htm. This is the local real estate agent. Many of the places available for letting overlook the Lake and everywhere is very close to the Lake.

http://cootharabamotel.com The Cootharaba Motel is a very small (only 5 rooms) motel with apartment style facilities  so these rooms get booked very early.

http://www.apollonianhotel.com.au. The local and historic Apollonian Hotel built in the 1860s because of the Gold Rush has accommodation in the restored former railway workers quarters.

The Boreen Point Campground is right near the Sailing Club and as you can see is right on the water. It is the pick of the camping places. As space is very limited at that time of the year the National Executive has booked 8 sites.  4 sites are booked for 8 days starting the 27th and 4 for 7 days starting the 28th. If you want to stay there then you need to book through our Treasurer, Brian Clarke (Use this e-mail address treasurer@nationale.org.au) and pay him directly before the end of October. As there are very few powered sites we have not been able to pre-book any of those.

Other camping spots are located in Noosa/Tewantin about 17 kms/20-30 minutes away. Check out their web sites



Plus of course if Noosa itself appeals to you and you’d rather stay there for its attractions and don’t mind the daily drive then being a holiday area there are many, many places to stay. Just google noosa accommodation

If you are wondering what your family or friends can do in the area remember that the Noosa area is a great blend of spectacular ocean beaches, National Parks and contemporary holiday living. Check out all these options and plan your family holiday.


I look forward to seeing you all at Lake Cootharaba.
