DRAGONS WORLD SAILING CHAMPIONSHIPS IN FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, indian ocean, sailing, sport, Uncategorized by freoview on January 4, 2019

 

The 2019 Dragons World Sailing Championships started off the coast of Fremantle this morning and will continue until January 9.

Ten races will be held over the six days with some starting as early as 9.30 a.m, depending on the wind conditions, which were strong this morning.

The race course is similar to the one during the 1987 America’s Cup.

A fleet of 35 dragons will compete, which includes  15 international teams.

The event was a bit too far off the coast this morning for me to take photos, so I hope they’ll come a bit closer to the South Mole soon.

It has been a frustratingly slow process for the clubs involved but the City of Fremantle will finally decide on Wednesday on the preferred tenderer to build the new $ 4.1 million clubhouse at Fremantle Park.

The company selected to build the new home for the Fremantle Workers Club, Fremantle Tennis Club and the Fremantle Bowling Club is McCorkell Constructions and that will be confirmed by the FPOL Committee of Fremantle Council.

Estimated start of construction is the first quarter of 2019 and completion in the last quarter of that year.

HUGE CROWDS AT WEST COAST EAGLES CELEBRATION

Posted in afl, city of fremantle, football, sport, Uncategorized by freoview on September 30, 2018

 

premiers AAA

 

I know there are a lot of West Coast Eagles footy fans in Fremantle, even when some Dockers supporters believe that one needs to hate the Weagles when one loves the Dockers.

So I hopped on the train to Langley Park in Perth to get a glimpse of the celebrations of the new AFL premiers, who did not end up with the wooden spoon.

Thousands made the long pilgrimage from  the Esplanade train station to the far east end of Langley Park and the queues to get the very first and freshly printed Premiers merchandise were huge already at 12.30 pm as these photos show.

I am not a big fan of big crowds so hopped back on the train and did not wait for the team to arrive.

Go the Eagles!! I hope the premiership of their local rivals inspires the insipid Dockers.

IS MOVING BRUCE LEE OVAL A FREO OPTION?

Posted in city of fremantle, community, local government, recreation, sport, Uncategorized by freoview on September 27, 2018

 

The City of Fremantle will undertake a feasibility study to assess options for the future use of Bruce Lee Oval and the Lefroy Road Quarry as part of a plan to guide the revitalisation of the Heart of Beaconsfield.

The Heart of Beaconsfield project is a co-operation between the City, the Department of Communities and other partners to coordinate the redevelopment of the area around the Davis Park precinct, Bruce Lee Oval, Lefroy Road Quarry and the former South Metropolitan TAFE site.

Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said a key question to be settled in planning the Heart of Beaconsfield is the best use for Bruce Lee Oval and the Lefroy Road Quarry.

The quarry site has the potential to provide 1.5 times more green space than the oval, so there’s an opportunity to develop new and better sporting facilities on the quarry and allow for some new diversified housing on the oval,” Mayor Pettitt said.

South Street is an important public transport corridor and it makes sense to have residential development close to public transport, while the quarry site is vacant land and there’s not a lot it can be used for.”

The study will show if it’s technically and financially feasible to relocate the oval, so before the City finalises the draft masterplan they are conducting the feasibility study to find out.

If the study shows the relocation of the oval is not feasible the oval will be retained in the draft masterplan. If it is feasible this option may be put forward to Council for further consultation. Regardless of the outcome of the study, the community will have the chance to have their say and the masterplan can still be amended before it’s officially adopted.

The oval feasibility study will take up to six months. The full Heart of Beaconsfield draft masterplan is expected to be released for public comment mid next year.

For more information visit the Heart of Beaconsfield page on the City’s My Say Freo website.
