Championship Arrival Process

Looe is a busy holiday resort during the summer and when you arrive for your championship you will have probably just completed a long tiring journey.

We aim to make your arrival and registration as smooth as possible whilst ensuring we meet our obligation to keep everybody safe and traffic flowing, so please follow the process below.

If you will be arriving before the Saturday morning or after 5pm on the Saturday please contact us to let us know using the details on the contact page. Be aware that the arrival day for 2017 is on Looe’s annual carnival day. therefore the main street accessing the dinghy park will be closed from 19:00 to 20:30. It is strongly advised that you don not attempt entering the town after 18:00 as access through the street will be complicated by gathering crowds. If you do not depart with your car and trailer by 18:00 you are likely to become trapped and you may find yourself obstructing the flow of the carnival.

Additionally contact us if you have a large towing vehicle or trailer. Normal 4×4’s and double dinghy trailers can navigate the streets with care but anything larger will need special support and guidance.

If you follow the Venue directions page you will be guided to the RNLI Lifeboat house at the entrance to the dinghy park.
Between 9am and 5pm on Saturday our reception team will be there to assist you.

Due to the volume of traffic and limited space we need to have you berthed and your car and trailer away within 15 minutes in order to avoid penalties.

Please follow our team’s instructions for parking your vehicle whilst your boat is unloaded.

You will immediately receive a berth number, which will be tagged, on your trolley handle and trailer. Note: Berth/Tally numbers are allocated on arrival these are not an entry number.

As soon as is possible move your boat and sailing equipment to your berth. A member of the reception team will help you find it. Note: Strictly no vehicles or road trailers are permitted in the dinghy park, only launching trolleys.

Immediately you are berthed, please return to the arrival point to transfer you trailer to the trailer park and move your car away. On leaving with your car and trailer the arrival team will issue you with a Green Card carrying your sail number, you will need this card for registration.

The reception team will provide you with directions to the trailer park.

Once your trailer and car have been safely parked up then you can make your way back to the dinghy park to socialise, commence boat scrutinising. You register at the club house.
