WPNSA General Visitor Info

We have been asked to draw your attention to the following points:

Car Parking

Parking is free and we ask that cars are parked in the designated car parking spaces. The dinghy park must be kept vehicle free for the safety of all pedestrians and to maximize boat space.

Drying Room

After you have been on the water feel free to use our drying room, located opposite the changing rooms this will be left open for your convenience. Please note that leaving items in here is done at your own risk.


Before you head out on the water, feel free to use our lockers to keep all your valuables safe. You can obtain a locker key from reception. You will be required to leave a 10 refundable deposit.


Monday-Friday: 9am-5pm Saturday and Sunday: 8am-6pm

These times are subject to bookings, during events and training if instructed the cafeteria can be open later for evening meals.


Children under 10 are only permitted on the premises if accompanied at all times by an adult. Please remember that you are responsible for all children you bring onto the WPNSA site.


Skateboards, scooters or similar are not to be used anywhere on site.


Dogs are permitted on site but must be kept on a lead and any mess must be cleared away immediately.


Mark Barnes runs Weymouth Sailsports from our site and offers a range of onsite chandlery services, catering for the needs of the dinghy sailor. Mark can be contacted on sales@weymouthsailsports.com.

Volunteers Needed Urgently

There are a number of gaps in the volunteer rota. The event cannot run unless these posts are filled. For this event in particular, we would expect ALL families to volunteer for at least a couple of volunteer duties.

If you have volunteered on the rota already, or are part of the race management/event team or official safety fleet - then THANK YOU.

If you haven't volunteered yet, please sign up HERE as soon as possible. The sailors will not be able to launch unless we have Tally assistants and the mothership/race management boats are manned appropriately.

If you feel you are unable to volunteer during the event, please let us know why, so we can look into making volunteering easier/more appealing in the future.

All on water race management, official safety fleet and mothership volunteers will be provided with packed lunches each day during the weekend.  

Late accommodation availability

If anyone is still looking for accommodation for the Selections weekend, the following house has become available:

4 bedrooms so could even suit 2 families. It's booked from Friday for 3 nights.
