I've been offered a position volunteering for the sailing events at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy next year for the Olympics (yes, very excited). I was wondering if anyone might have suggestions for reasonable accommodation during that time (end July thr mid August). I've got all the local campsites listed, but was trying to get creative!

Many thanks in advance and Happy New Year :-)

Nice one Melanie, I am still waiting to hear but hopeful, having helped at the test event. I will be staying in Swanage which is c. 45 minutes drive.  There were a few volunteers at the test event coming from Swanage and we talked about getting together to sort our transport if we were called up next year. There would probably be a spare bed at our house in Swanage but I wouldn't be able to confirm that until much nearer the time.

I've created a facebook page for all volunteers who will be based at Weymouth for the Olympics. Hope you like it, comments welcome :-)
