Trip to Weymouth in April

In April we will be repeating our 2012 trip to Weymouth from Wednesday the 10th to Sunday the 14th of April, that’s 5 nights away. There is the option to come for fewer nights or even just for the weekend. As many of you will know Weymouth offers very safe sailing on flat water in Portland Harbour. Open to clean winds from the South and West and reaches of half a mile or so make it an ideal location for Weymouth Speed Week and it will suit our purposes very well. We will be organising GPS units.

We plan on staying close by at Pebble Bank Caravan park which can accommodate us in static vans sleeping 4 or 6 (no one shares a double bed unless they want to!!) or they can come in their own campervans.

We will be making use of the facilities at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy for parking, launching, snacks and showers. Charges for this are £9.60 a day or, better for us, £34.30 a week. This includes the required Portland Harbour launching fee.

Accommodation, last year was approx. £60 for 5 nights plus food and the cost for getting there. We would like to get people to share transport if at all possible and we will make every effort to facilitate this. Breakfasts will be in the caravans and evening meals will either be out at a pub or we can get a takeaway.

If you are interested please get in touch  by the 30th January so we can start making formal plans. I will need to know the number of nights you will want to stay.
