MORDIALLOC ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS
The Australia Sharpie is the most popular high performance boat in Australia with fleets of up to 70 boats at previous National Championships, the Victorian Division is hoping for upwards of 50 boats to attend, from all states with ages ranging from 15-70. Both male and female crews compete together on the race track. There is high level of competition for the Junior under 21 age group title as well as the female skippers trophy. There are fleets in country areas such as Wollongong, Ballarat, Port Lincoln and Bussleton. The strong metropolitan fleets in every capital city complement these fleets. With crews of three and a strong emphasis on teamwork and outside involvement, we hope to attract over 150 competitors and hope to total around 250-300 people of all ages when families and friends are included. There is a strong youth policy in the class and a strong presence of people aged 25 and younger, again this is complemented by the class stalwarts and professional sailors who make up around 60% of the fleet. With such a wide target audience there is sure to be a group of people interested in your brand and may even be able to help enhance your brand through the network of individuals that sail this great class.
