The Girls!

Australian Canoe Developement Tour 2013

We left Perth airport at 11.55 and arrived in Melbourne at 5.15, and after trying to sleep on restaurant couches for 2 hours we met up with the Tasmanians and Victorians. We then made our way through customs and flew from Melbourne to Auckland and arrived in Auckland at 2.30. After a quick Maccas run we met up with the NSW team. We packed 23 boats on a trailer, which took some manoeuvring but we eventually got there. The 3-hour car ride took us to Matamata where we had Subway for dinner. We then drove for another hour and a half and arrived at our caravan park. Where the boys were allocated two rooms next to the kitchen and the girls scored a house with a tv.

 

It was 9.30 when we woke up after being awake for more than 24 hours.  We then had breakfast and went for…

Save South Beach (again!)

Posted by robjwall on February 13, 2013

My comments on this proposal

 

http://www.fremantle.wa.gov.au/cityoffremantle/Community_engagement/Community_consultation_projects/South_Beach_universal_access_and_dinghy_launch_ramp

 

1. This proposal has no benefit to kayakers, as we can launch off the beach already.    A ramp 100m away is no extra benefit, as we can walk to the beach already. What could benefit Kayakers is some steps from the existing public car park directly into the water at the very North end of the beach/rocks, to save carrying across the grassed area.

 

2. The CoF should carefully consider what disable facilities are actually needed and being asked for and not be manipulated by the vested interests of the Sailing Club.  Funding that is available for the disabled MUST CONSIDER THEIR NEEDS FIRST independent of other groups (be they kayakes or sailors…).

 

3. I, and others in the community do not want to close in yet another part of our beach.  This has been consistently demonstrated in the past.

 

4. Detailed scaled plans must be made available for public consultation.

 

5. I feel that building a ramp / groyne 1/2 km out to see on the existing sea wall would have little impact on existing beach users and may be acceptable, but anything closer will be rejected by the community.
