Accommodation and Travel:

Apart from the Noosa "Live In Camp" where YQ will organise accommodation and some food, any accommodation and/or travel expenses are the responsibility of the athlete (and family) to meet; YQ will not be contributing towards such expenses as part of this program.

Discounted accommodation is available at the YQ facility for athletes and families for the duration of the time the athlete is a member of the QST. The discounted rate is $35/person/night. Bookings are required in advance and being a QST member does not guarantee availability. The accommodation works on a "first in, first served" basis.

This can be organised by contacting Claire McNamara at Yachting Queensland on (07) 3393 6788 or office@qldyachting.org.au. Further information and booking form can be found on the YQ website - www.qldyachting.org.au.
