Additional Campervan spaces and Parking

Camper Vans
For all those wanting to bring a Camper Van to Poole Yacht Club Spring Championships we have good news....

Within the club there are no more spaces. BUT we have managed to talk to our friendly Poole Harbour Port Office and they have agreed that any additional Campers that wish to park overnight on Friday and/or Saturday can do so in the Poole Harbour Port Car Park (obviously no hook up or water but there are toilets and showers in a nearby block)

PARKING - Cars and Campers
All Parking for the duration of the event will be offsite in the Car Park at the end of the road that leads up to Poole YC

IMPORTANT - You will need one of our Special Parking Card/Tickets. 11 plus 5 deposit (Please bring correct money) Simon Foster From Poole YC will have these tickets on the gate on Saturday morning. But if you are arriving on Friday evening you will need to make arrangements with Simon asap. Call 07778 559070

Entry Limit Exceeded - Entry Closed

Online entry for the 2015 Springs is currently closed whilst we reconcile the currently oversubscribed entry and payments.

We are working to update the list as quickly as possible.
