About The Venue
Racing takes place from Steamer Point on Christchurch Bay to the east of Christchurch town Centre and Mudeford Quay, mudeford Harbour.
The race site overlooks a beautiful bay with easy access to the beach to the left of the famous Christchurch beach huts. Looking out to sea all kit should be restricted to the left of the huts to give locals and holiday makers free access to the beach frontage.
There are ample toilets on the sea front
Our hosts Christchurch Boardsailing Club have a small club house and hot showers are available.
A small cafe is available on the sea front
From London and the South East. M3 and M27
From Midlands. M40 and A34
Once you reach Christchurch you need to follow the by-pass (A35) towards Lymington. At its end, large roundabout, go streight over into Highcliff Road. Follow it to the roundabout, turn right into The Runway. Third on left into Bure Lane (signposted the coastguard station), fourth on left into Seaway Avenue. Continue to the sea. The camping area is through the gates on right hand side.
Be Warned: if you look at a map you CANNOT turn right into Bure Lane from the Lymington Road coming from Christchurch, although you can turn left into it if you are travelling from Lymington.
The access gate to the camping fielf will be locked so you will need to make your way to the race office for access if the gate is not manned when you arrive.
Camping is in a large grassy field which is flat and overlooks the bay. The toilets are accessed in the far right hand corner.
We are very fortunate to have access to this venue. The caming field backs onto private houses, so please respect the locals by keeping noise down and keeping the site tidy so that locals can walk ammongst us.
