For those of you not familiar with Pentewan, it is approximately 4 miles from the St Austell one mile from Mevagissey on the St Austell to Mevagissey main road.
All Towing vehicles are to proceed to the main entrance to the Pentewan Holiday Park. You will be directed through the camp site to the beach where you will be asked to unhitch your trailer. We will have two tractors to tow your trailer and gig onto the beach. Once unhooked you will be directed to a dedicated parking area for your vehicle.
Clubs must unload their own gigs once on the beach. Once your gig is unloaded your empty trailer will be towed back up the beach. At the end of the day the tractors will tow your trailers & gigs back up the beach to a designated area for you to take away. Gigs are asked to arrive between 9.00am and no later than 11.00am. Please do not all arrive at the same time as we want to avoid congestion and disruption to both yourselves and the paying campers and caravanners! Car parking for rowers and spectators will be opposite the campsite – please take notice of the car parking signs. No cars will be allowed through the boat compound. Please car share wherever possible to avoid congestion.
Camping and caravans are available at Pentewan Sands by telephoning 01726 843485 and at other nearby campsites.
No Dogs allowed on the beach
Presentations will be made outside the Marquee at around 6.00pm (if dry!).
Please do not forget to return your trophies!
We look forward to seeing you on the day for what we hope will be an enjoyable day.
