START TIME:                     TBC   (low tide is at 11:34 hrs)

BEACH ACCESS:                Follow track through former caravan site off Rhych Avenue (see map above). Access to the beach for Boats and safety cover only is gained by turning on to Rhych avenue. Half way down there is a right turn through a barrier.

 

Porthcawl will be the same set up for the Sunday - a tractor and driver are available for towing on and off the beach. DO NOT attempt to access using a 4x4 the sand is very soft and you will get stuck. Plenty of parking is available near to the High Tide complex and on the esplanade. Please pay attention to parking areas and requirements to pay.

 


Only vehicles that tow a boat will be allowed to park next to the lifeguard tower. Please try to keep obstructions to a minimum and respect local residents and business owners. Access to the beach for Boats and safety cover only is gained by turning on to Rhych avenue. Half way down there is a right turn through a barrier. Follow the road in the direction of the lifeguard station (you won't miss it) The waste land is open to public so be aware of children and dogs off the lead. 5mph with hazard lights being used is desirable.

 


The exact time of this event will depend on beach access - the slipway is under water at high tide. Racing should be starting around MIDDAY again, but will be finalised a week or so before the event. A swift exit from the beach is required before high tide limits access and makes the sand VERY soft and deep.


PARKING:                           Parking is available near to the High Tide complex and on the esplanade. Please pay attention to parking areas and requirements to pay.
TOWING ON BEACH:        A Tractor will tow boats down on to the beach.
