Marconi 29er General Information

Round 5 of the 2015/2016 29er UK Grand Prix series sponsored by HARKEN takes place at Marconi SC on Saturday 19th March 2016 to Sunday 20th March 2016. Marconi SC is a new venue for the 29er fleet and we look forward to welcoming them for the first time. The club offers large grassed rigging areas an extensive hard for launch and recovery and sailing areas which are within site of the club house, no long trek out to the race course required here. The clubhouse facilities are reasonably modern with large changing rooms and plenty of showers. Our upstairs saloon/galley offers views over the river and if the weather and tide allows the Race Officer the luxury of setting a very local course, possible even views of the racing. 29er GennekerREGISTERING Click Here to register through the class for this event

  Local Accommodation Unfortunately we are not permitted to stay overnight onsite between the end of October and the beginning of April, this is due to the location being a nature conservation area and local bye-laws which prevent this. However the village of steeple, which is at the end of the club access road offers two very good pub which both boast good caravan and mobile home facilities,along with some B&B options. Link to Star Inn Information (5 mins from MSC) Link to Sun & Anchor Information (6 Mins From MSC) Also there is a caravan park at the other end of the village, which is still only 10 minutes away.
