Stop Press . . . Local Government Regulations mean that WPNSA regrettably cannot accept any campervans/caravans on site from the 16th August through until the 21st September.
The WPNSA and the RYA are aware that this impacts greatly on the event and have arranged for an alternative camping ground near WPNSA (5-10 minute walk) which can accomodate caravans, tents & campervans. The postcode of the site is DT5 1AU.
We are very sorry for the invonvenience this may cause but hope by providing an alternative camping ground near to WPNSA competitors can still continue to enjoy all the facilites WPNSA has to offer while your accomodation is only a few minutes up the road.
