The first event of the season is 25 days away so now is the time the BWA Team want to remind you to book your accommodation and that ferry before it gets too expensive.
RHOSNEIGR: Friday 6th to Sunday 8th May
The Pros need to be at the Funsport shop on Beach Road in Rhosneigr for 9am on the Friday for registration.
ALL other fleets need to be at Funsport at 9am on Saturday 8th for registration.
Getting there: M6/M56/A55. If from the south, don’t get off at Telford and go through Shrewsbury unless you like a scenic tour of Shropshire.
Accomodation: Rhosneigr has a few B&B’s and plenty of self-catering. There isn’t any other town nearby so you will want to stay in Rhosneigr. There is quite a good campsite should you wish to stay under canvass. Any more info about accommodation please contact the Funsport shop: [email protected] / 01407 810899. Or go to www.rhosneigr.org.uk and click on accommodation.
Extra: Friday is, as usual, LLANDUDNO SKI SLOPE night which is ‘on the way’ to Rhosneigr. Amateurs/Masters/Ladies/Youths can registrar for the event from 7pm at the Ski Centre and in return you will have access to the slopes for ski or snowboarding and for those of us not so hot on the slopes there is the toboggan run. This is all followed by a free BBQ. So registraring Friday night is well worth your while before heading the extra 40mins to Rhosneigr. Don’t forget to bring a pair of GLOVES. They will be another registration on the Saturday morning if you arrive too late Friday night.
Saturday night is party night in Rhosneigr. Theme to be announced shortly!
RHOSNEIGR TO IRELAND ROAD TRIP
What fun we had last year dashing for the ferry on the Sunday evening and arriving late in the night to the magical Brandon Bay. Let’s do it again!
Having had a good look at the ferries, our suggestion is to pay an extra £10 and book a flexi ticket with Stena Line so you can change bookings at no additional cost. This means if the wind/waves don’t oblige on the Sunday we can all get over there early. However, we will hopefully be having a full day of competition in which case the late evening ferry looks the best. Here are the options:
1350-1705 (Stena Adventurer, slow boat, taking you to Dublin port)
2030-2345 (Stena Nordics, slow boat taking you to Dublin port)
Irish Sea Ferry options for the Sunday 8th are:
Leave at 1200, 1410 or 1715 all taking you to Dublin Port.
IRELAND TO HOME
More details about the Irish event very soon but for now you need to get home on Saturday 14th May. Those of you living in the south can go Cork-Swansea on the new ferry (www.fastnetline.com), which leaves at 2000 on the Saturday getting into Swansea at 0800 Sunday morning. Price for one adult in a car, booked NOW is £145.
Those up north can get back to Dublin or Dun Laoghaire via Stena Line or Irish Sea Ferries.
