Parents: There is plenty of parking, but due to the soft ground, there may be 1km walk to the boats. Wellies and warm gear are therefore sensible. Splendidly (for Phil) NO Gazebos are allowed on course side! Forecast is for dry and still conditions, but cold as of Thursday morning. Check : http://www.xcweather.co.uk/ – Phil’s favourite sailing wind site.
Refreshments are available upstairs at the Boathouse, but a ready supply of re-fuelling foods – light sandwiches, jelly babies and malt loaf etc should sustain the rowers – more “adult” food on offer in the Boathouse.
