Taking into account the concerns about access for the disabled, it isn't that far from the carpark to the lakeside via a gate across the railway line on pretty good going. The quality of Wicksteed members and attendees assures you that someone will help launch/recover your boat.

Looking forward to next years already but the Travelodge calendar does not go as far ahead as May 2017 so I cannot book my room yet!

There is no need to register. WICKSTEED park has a campsite but please wait till end of january as we might get a discount. We will endeavour to put as much info up As soon as we know.
Those who do camp have a very friendly disposition and we normally on the Saturday night have a communal BBQ where everyone e throws good in the middle and some poor sap cooks it all for you.

Hi and welcome


The organising of the mayhem weekend and the relevant discounts are well in progress and we will get all the confirmed information from Wicksteed Park management after Christmas/New Year period as its one of their busiest times at the moment but all is going well. :-))
We should get the same discount as last year and same camping location in the campsite.
As soon as the New Year holiday is over I'll get the information sent out on the forum.
Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year everyone.

Providing Beale Park is not the same weekend I may invest in a small tent.  If you can wait that long Dave I can bring you the "Four Ships Arrived" Thames Tug.  Swap for some bacon butties ?

Hello,

Soon as we all arrive, start practicing for a "Sail By" for as many boats as we can get on the water.
Needs to be on video for posterity !!!!.
