Only a few days to go until the start of the GP14 Worlds at EDYC. Over 100 boats have registered and we will have over 250 people on site each day of the event. In this final countdown we need your help to ensure the smooth running of the event and make it enjoyable for everyone. The attached list gives the details of the help needed.
South Rock Race - Saturday 2 August 2014
Camp Site full for GP14 World Championships
The club regrets that it cannot take any further bookings for camp sites within its grounds. We have been heavily subscribed and anticipate all space being significantly in demand, thus we made a decision not to take any more camping site bookings. All of our local tourist information offices will assist in finding accommodation which can include camp sites and self-catering.
