Right now I have 5 girls booked in for this 14 day adventure. 3 Americans, 1 Canadian and 1 Aussie. We’re bringing some top quality banter, solid racing, and adding to the depth of the womens field.
After a successful Summer Camp USA trip earlier this year. The girls from the slumber party have extended a warm invite to all the girls we raced in the summer. I’m so happy to announce 3 of them have taken us up on the offer, and all the plans are in place for them to have aa respite from the american winter and enjoy the shenanigans and speed that is the Australian tack carnival.
But wait! There’s more!
These carnivals are the perfect storm of variety, adventure, and hot racing. This make it great early season training or the reason you need a second serving of prawns and Christmas pudding. Somehow CV and CNSW have managed to put some of the most exciting racing on the Australian calendar all into two weeks, and traditionally when people take time off. So no matter what your original plans were, this staycation is not to be missed (I can’t see this aligning so well again)
If you are lacking some motivation, here is a list of major events you can train for
HELP!!! is available.
I know i said i wasn’t going to go full travel agent and look after bookings. But to sweeten the deal i have some assistance on offer.

At minimum I’m offering a flight from Melbourne to Sydney, and depending on your home city (and availability of flights) I can do the return flight too.
