Gate Code

Competitors who have entered in advance will be emailed the gate code.

Boat Park

Competitors should follow the road round to the left and drive up to the boat park on the top level.

Cars, Trailers and Launching Trolleys

There is plenty of room in this area and cars, trailers and trolleys can be left here while sailing.



Launching from this slipway is straight forward, but can be slippery in the shallow water.

We recommend tying a  long length of line to the handle of your trolley so it can both be retrieved when you have launched your boat and aid recovery at retrieval time.

Plenty of depth to lower keels.
