Ireland UKWA Waves event Update

Get organised for the UKWA Wave Round 1.

The first stop of the UKWA in Brandon Bay, Ireland, will take place next May, from the 6th to the 10th. But if you want to get there paying the cheapest fare possible, pay attention to what the UKWA has just informed:

“After several discussions with Stena Line, the \’special event codes\’ to give us cheaper ferries are not as cheap as the Stena Line Spring Sale which is currently taking place. Stena Line says they cannot beat the \’sale prices\’ and these won\’t last for long so BOOK NOW.

The good news is that they are cheaper than last year (even with our event discount for the 2008 event).

At the moment, return from Holyhead for TWO adults in a car/MPV/4×4 (that includes a VW transporter), economy fare is £118. The quicker ferry to Dun Laoghaire is slightly more expensive. The Fishguard/Rosslare route is again £118 paying slightly more for a cabin if you wish for more comfort.

There is also a chance the Swansea-Cork ferry will be up and running but at the moment Stena Line is the only option and those fares are cheap. You can also fly from Stansted to Kerry with Ryan Air very cheaply if you book now. Taking windsurfing kit costs an extra £57.”

About the event schedule, they are planning to be more efficient with the registration so they don’t miss any good sailing on day one if the weather is good. So this year, registration will be on the 5th (Tuesday) evening, between 9 and 11 pm at Spillane’s Pub. If you don’t have enough time to make it there on time, there will be a final registration the next day, Wednesday morning, from 8:30 to 9:00 am at Jamie Knox Watersports. (Information about the cost of entry, to follow)

Skippers meeting will be there at 9:00 and everyone should be ready for action straight away!.

Hopefully the weather will be awesome everyday to run the competition so by Sunday it is all finished. If it is, they will hold an Expression Session then, but if not, Sunday will still be a provisional competition day. Whatever it happens, official competition will finish soon enough to give time to everyone to make it to the ferry ports (Dublin/Rosslare) to catch the latest ferry crossing at 9 pm.

Book your Ferry NOW and make sure you get the best deal.
