Alexandra Promenade, North Beach Bridlington
About The Venue
Alexadra Promenade, Bridlington. We will be welcomed by East Riding of Yorkshire Council, and will be well looked after at our northernmost venue. This event always attracts lots of interested spectators, so please take a moment to answer any questions and promote our sport of windsurfing. Bridlington is friendly, seaside town with lots to do for everyone.
The Council supply a race office and an excellent public address system which enables competitors and spectators keep up to date with all the latest information.
There are toilets and water on the promenade, and we have access to the showers at Leisure World (Saturday evening) further along the promenade towards the town.
Movement of kit accross the front will be strictly restricted to first thing in the morning and early evening. Please make sure you have everything you need on the beach first thing. Please respect the local comunity and keep the walkways clear.
There is a good cafe close to the race office , which will be situated at town end of promenade. Please keep this area clear of your kit. Shops ,pubs and restaurants are all close by, as are Hotels and Guest Houses.
From the south: M1/M18/M62 to Howden, then A614/A163/A166 through the Wolds, to Bridlington. From the north: A1 to A19/A166 (inland route) or A171/A165 (coastal route) When you arrive in Bridlington, follow signs for North Beach. It's on North Beach promenade.
Camping is permitted free of charge on Alexandra Promenade. As usual please park sensibly. This is a popular venue, and space is limited, and spread out along the length of the promenade. Those of you who were at previous events will understand! Please park facing the sea, and do not block the promenade - a tourist noddy train will be operating all the time we are there, and many other wheeled vehicles eg children on bikes, as well as pedestrians need room to pass.
Park as tight as possible; do not block the steps down on to the promenade; there is a no parking zone (it is a reserved for disabled) at one end of the upper promenade, at the point where you access the promenade with vehicles. We also have the use of the lower promenade to the left of the access point.
Please keep your speed down to a minimum on arrival and departure. Remember the land train has absolute right of way.
