WE HAVE ALSO INTRODUCED A FUN ROUND THE ISLAND RACE ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON WITH A SEPARATE TROPHY WHICH IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF THE EVENT BUT IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE NATIONALS RESULTS.
SATURDAY WILL ONLY BE USED FOR NATIONAL’S RACES IF WE HAVE UNSUITABLE WEATHER ON THURSDAY OR FRIDAY AND DONT FIT IN ENOUGH RACES.
SATURDAY FUN RACE IS OPEN TO OTHER BOATS NOT TAKING PART IN THE NATIONALS FOR A FEE OF £25 PAYABLE THROUGH THE SITE.
We are really looking forward to this 4-day Hobie 16 Nationals at Poole Yacht club. As usual, we have booked a live band for Friday night’s Party and this year we are happy to say that there will be a big BBQ that evening. This year we are hoping that 1 day of the racing will take place outside the harbour in Poole Bay. We have our fingers firmly crossed for suitable weather to make this possible. For full details of the Racing please see the Notice of Race
To make it easier to organize registration, catering, and event clothing we have used an external website called Race Nation. Simply follow the link to their website and they will collect your details and process the order.
The tickets for the event are £160 per team for 4 days of racing and the party on Friday evening with live band. That’s only £20 per person per day! (Meals and T-shirts not included)
To help support our younger teams we are again offering a discounted ticket for £125 providing both team members are under 18.
Just want to join the fun race on Saturday?
To join the fun race but not the other events you can buy an entry ticket for £25 on the Race Nation website.
T-shirts and Hoodies
Through the Race Nation website, you can buy an event T-shirt or Hoody with the event banner on the front and the BHCCA logo on the back.
All meals are sold separately so make sure you buy tickets for Thursday and Friday evenings. You can buy as many additional tickets for friends and family as you need.
Thursday Evening ‘Race Food’ £13 pp – This includes the usual buffet style hot food followed by the BHCCA AGM.
Friday Evening BBQ £16 pp – This includes a choice of meats, vegetarian options, fish dishes salads and a drink from the bar.
We have a few options for accommodation:
Campervans at the club- To book your campervan into Poole Yacht Club please call the yacht club office on 01202 672687. There is a maximum size of 6.2m and prices vary from £20.50 to £32.50 depending on the size of the van.
Camping at Lytchett Minster Rugby Club- Camping is available for £30 per tent per night. Reserve your space when you fill out the registration form and pay directly to Simon Keen on the first day of the event, (showers and toilets are available on site.)
As Poole is a tourist town there is plenty of other accommodation available, however as this is a rare 4 day bank holiday you are best to book as soon as possible, to see the options available visit the Poole tourism website on https://www.pooletourism.com/accommodation
