Speaking on behalf of my local club, (Gosford) they would be happy to host a regatta (States or Nationals or other). They have a regatta we could attach ourselves too (planned for March 2015 this year although I will be away that weekend!) but they host other regattas as stand alone events as well. I’m not saying we have to choose them, but I’m sure they would be willing and able. Other venues will be excellent too, I’m sure.
Barring family commitments I’m happy and keen to travel for a regatta – I have pencilled Jervis Bay and Canberra into the diary for this year.
