The UKWA will be using its Public Address System to make announcements this weekend
However in addition we will be using a smartphone App. Whilst the PA system works well if you are in proximity, we can now talk to you directly via your smartphone throughout the event.
Not only can we talk to you, if you miss the transmission you can play it back so you never miss a thing.
If you want to be part of this then please search for and download the App called Zello Once you are signed up you go to Channels and search for UKWA including the UKWA logo.
So long as you have the App open at the event you will receive our transmissions
Further details at the events, just ask a member of the race crew.
Please note: Neither of the above replaces an individuals responsibility to The NoR, The SI's, Flags and The official Notice board

The UKWA will not be racing out of Pwllheli Sailing Club.
Instead the UKWA will be returning to one of its favourite venues. Abererch Sands Holiday Centre. Follow the link to their web site for further details of the site Abererch Sands.
Please do not contact the site in advance as this causes confusion. The UKWA has sole use of an event field and overnight camping will be charged at the substantially reduced rate of £21 per night. This must be booked in advance via the link on the UKWA event page.
There are a limited number of electric hook ups which will be available on a first come first served basis however you will be expected to share. Once your batteries are charged you will be expected to give up the supply to anyone else who require it. We trust people will work together so that all can benefit, but please be aware the UKWA will not hesitate to interveen if individuals are acting in a selfish manor not suited to a UKWA event.
There are ample toilets and showers on site, small swimming pool, snooker room and shop.
PLEASE NOTE; NO WETSUITS IN TOILETS / SHOWERS OR SWIMMING POOL AT ANY TIME.
The present owners hosted our previous visits and we are grateful for their co-operation in hosting our return
The beach is located off the camping area, all in all an ideal location for a windsurfing event.
