Camping on club grounds (space for 8 campers - first come, first served) or in the new clubhouse with showers, etc. is encouraged.  Lots of motels/hotels in the area or billetting with local sailors may be possible.

Programme: 2-3 races on each of Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 
Coffee & doughnuts each morning; lunches. No catered Saturday night dinner in 2007. We will go out as a group!

Entry Fee:  $80 (US) in 2004. Friday and Saturday lunches available @ $5.00, Saturday dinner expected to cost about $13.00 to $15.00
 
 
Miscellaneous: A marvellous break from the northern winter. A very enthusiastic and friendly group of Lake Eustis SC dinghy sailors cater to our every need with hospitality that has become legendary in just four years! And of course, there is no feeling quite like sitting by the water in shorts and T-shirt to watch the sun go down over Lake Eustis in early February!
