Seaplane Operations on the Lake?

The NCA has announced that Lake User Groups are to be invited to join a working party to discuss the proposal for seaplane operations. The CYC looks forward to participating in these discussions. We support viable options for seaplanes on Lake Burley Griffin but is disappointed that the NCA, having sought submissions on the basis that they would publish and the authors identified, initially sought to avoid publication on spurious ‘privacy; grounds. The submissions are now however publicly available on the NCA website. These include the detailed CYC submission stating the Club's concerns about the impact the proposal will have on the activities of existing Lake users in West Basin. Here you can download the cover letter and our submission document to the consultation.

Different types of boats are provided including the Hansa Class that are easy to sail.
