What transport is available?

We will organise the following buses at the startand end of the tn17 Raid:

  • Wednesday 1st February – we will organise two bus runs from the LBT Shed in Franklin to Cockle Creek. People dropping off boats and then doing the trailer shuffle back to Franklin will have preference for the later bus.
  • Friday 10th February Constitution Docks, Hobart to Franklin – times for bus run(s) will depend on demand

You can book places on these buses on-line at: https://goo.gl/XWDqmz

If you are joining the Raid on Sunday 5th February becauseyour boat was assessed as not suitable for doing the more exposed parts of theRaid south of Dover we can provide some assistance but you need to sortout the details with us. We assume you have a car and trailer and that you needhelp to get your trailer back to Franklin. If you are an early riser and are veryefficient at rigging your boat you could plan to join the fleet in themorning in Dover in time to rig, launch and sail with the fleet during the daybut that will be very rushed. A less stressful alternative would be to take a leisurelydrive to Randalls Bay, enjoy a peaceful day there rigging and testing your boatbefore the fleet arrives in the afternoon.  If you are joining on 5th Februaryyou need to contact the tn17 Coordinator to confirm your details. Email to:  info@tawe-nunnugah.org

If you think you have arranged for us to help with transportthat is not covered above and you have not yet discussed this in detail withthe Raid Coordinator, you’d better contact him because he’s probably forgotten –that’s why we have a preference for people doing the whole Raid. Email to: info@tawe-nunnugah.org
