With Major Sponsors in place, organisation of the 2006/2007 Australian Hobie Cat
Nationals is moving into top gear. The Glenelg and West Beach area, where
Adelaide Sailing Club is situated, is going through continued improvements.
A new paved cycle/walk track extends from the town centre along the foreshore
past the sailing club providing great access from all forms of accommodation.
For the keen - this track leads all the way to Port Adelaide - ideal for the
early morning run - or the late evening 'stumble'. The finishing touches are
being put on the new amusement park - located at the end of the tram line right
on the foreshore in Glenelg centre. With 3 huge multi-story water slides, the
park will be a fantastic attraction kids of all ages.
Those who have not sailed in Adelaide since the Holdfast Bay Sailing Club and
the Glenelg Sailing Club were amalgamated, are in for a HUGE surprise. The new
club is 'the best' off the beach sailing club in Australia ! Competitors who
have been to the new club will see the continued upgrades of the facilities here
- the main feature - the new roof covering the ocean facing deck!
