30 Aug One day to go….
just 1 day to go…
Important info for our travellers….
Visitors can drop their boats off at Quay Meadow adjacent to the club, from Friday morning onwards….
Please see a location map of village here
Several of us will be around all day Friday and the ‘event office’ will be in the marquee on the club terrace, with ‘registration’ from 15.00 until 18.30
High tide on Friday at 15:17 may mean the Shore Road is flooded from around 14.00-17.00 but access to the Club and Quay Meadow will be via the High Street.
For visitors arriving on Saturday, we would encourage an early arrival as we are expecting a lot of boats and it will be very busy….!
To encourage your early start we will be offering breakfast from 07.30 and our team will be on the ground from 07.00, so beat the traffic and arrive early. The briefing is planned for 10.00 with boats afloat soon thereafter.
We are planning to concentrate all the Proctor boats into a group area on the meadow for display purposes. If you have any memorabilia that could be displayed in/around your boat that would be interesting for any visitors, feel free to do so….
Each boat will be given a trolley tag at registration, which must be attached to their launching trolley and in some cases may refer to a specific slot on the meadow as part of the event display.
We hope to speed up launching of 80 plus entrants with the assistance of some beach masters who will aim to put your trolley back up on the Meadow in it’s corresponding slot.
Quay Meadow is owned by The National Trust and we are not allowed to park any cars on there, so once you have dropped your boat off, cars must be moved to the public car park in the village, which is a few mins walk from the Quay.
