Camping etc:-
The association has organised camping straight across the road from the Watersports centre - we have to pay that separate to our entry, but it will be fractionally under commercial camping fees. The council are fencing off a section for us, we understand that they are providing a guard to that area whilst we are away sailing - maybe they remember Bob Fisher's escapades many years back  . 
We will also have dedicated toilets
You may camp in a Camper Van, caravan, van or tent (for those toughies). We have arranged the use of the rugby club bar and restaurant beside where we camp - the rugby club is used to serving starving and dirty rugby players directly after a match and then feeding them after they have showered, so plenty of "carbs" available to give back energy and I understand the drinks are very competitively priced.
We also have use of a marquee and if we get enough entries, we will have the use of a sports hall for some evenings.

Race & Social  Programme

Racing - See Notice of Race

Socials  - Jo and Pippa are going overboard to ensure a fun backed social event as well.
Colwyn Bay borders Snowdonia National Park, so a brilliant place to bring the family - 100 wire inside the depths of a cavern, tree top walks, canoeing and rock climbing all close by for families and those who want to go off in the evening. There are also steam trains at Caernarfon that will take you across to Porthmadoc around the base of Snowdon and if you want you can get further up the mountains by separate train from Portmadoc. Snowdonia as an adventure playground really has it all. Otherwise, partners may just wish to lay back in the sun under a beach shade and read a book with a glass of something or stroll along the wide promenade or visit Conwy Castle.
