Sounds like you guys should get a local Hobie Island Club up ad running. Just contact Lorraine Garnier at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks Tony, I have sent Lorraine an email.
Hey Johnno, 20x AI's/TI's in a friendly "race" around Spinnaker Is., stopping for lunchtime food and chat, sounds fantastic!
Good advertising too (Bob?
I reckon there's more chance of getting people to the LBG than Googong or the Clyde.
Yeah, LBG is central to the Northsiders and Southsiders and plenty of good places to launch. I would be keen to see social activities like you suggested going.
As long as you didn't show a/too much light, you could easily sleep on Springbank Is. (see https://goo.gl/maps/bPrcV
- there's even a kayaker on the middle bottom in yellow
) - toilets are top-left.
Spinnaker Is. had its willows cut down a few years ago and is still a bit bare now - before, you couldn't see the middle of the island from the shore, but now it's windswept.
Sleeping on the banks will almost certainly be a problem - there are bikepaths which go around much of the lake and, while you'd probably be safe, someone may dob on you.
I'm sure we can find a bed or, at the very least, some grass in the yard to camp on!
I reckon you could get away with an overnighter (or two) on Springbank Island.
Rather than Hijack Bob's thread any further on this I might make a new one.
