We are pleased to announce that as of last night we have reached 40 pre-entries! With just over a week to go we could see a few more come in.
Now some not so good news. Highcliffe have advised us that Christchurch Council have said that they will not be issuing concessionary car park tickets to competitors at the Nationals. This is disappointing however the club have advised that there is plenty of on street parking within a 5 minute walk of the club should you wish to take advantage of that. The other option is to car share from where you are staying to spread the coat a little. The car parking costs are as follows:
Up to 4 hours £5.50
Up to 8 hours £10
Harken have supplied a large box of goodies to be used as prizes throughout the Nationals. As a result of this they are now a co-sponsor of the event with Suntouched Sailboats and all boats will be required to display a Harken sticker. A sneak peak of the goodies can be seen below….
Our main event sponsor Suntouched Sailboats have also put a pint behind the bar for every competitor for Friday and Saturday after racing (and possibly Sunday if there is any left and you are not driving). Our thanks to them and we wonder if this might be a ploy to nobble a few of the more beer hungry competitors, only time will tell!
