With such a great forecast and high demand for entries in Cornwall the event hosts have been forced to cap numbers in each fleet and moved to online entry onlyall competitors must enter online before 9pm on Thursday!

This will enable the heats to be drawn in advance and all competitors to gain the maximum water time and quality of competition – the top 16 seeded competitors will gain priority, providing they have pre entered as detailed – all riders must attend registration and briefings to sign in.

After a fantastic week in Tiree and a fairly epic journey back…..we haven’t even unpacked the vans as it’s time to recharge the batteries and head to Cornwall for the final round of the BWA Tour to find out who will be crowned British champions in all the fleets, and introduce even more newcomers to the awesome experience they can get from a BWA event…..

For 2013 the Bluff Inn have stepped up to offer us our event HQ and a great evening venue for a few beer! Riviere Sands Holiday park is right next door and have availability for group caravan bookings……

Should we experience any light wind time with the competition on hold, there will be a number of Pro Sailors offering equipment and technique clinics to all amateur riders. This was a great success in Tiree and made the trip even more worthwhile for many of the competitors and especially the newcomers…..there isn’t much our top PWA Pro riders can’t help with!
