Does anyone know if we can we camp at Carsington?

We went and sussed out the place earlier this year. They said you couldn't camp (though it might be different for a class event but I couldn't see anywhere pitchable) but there are two or three campsites just up the road - a five minute walk.
And one is at a pub.

I have spoken to the club and Pat is right, camping is not possible at the club, but there are a couple of campsites just five minutes walk/stagger/crawl away.
More details of the Inlands will be published very soon.

I've stayed at the one near the pub...very good, and only down the road.

Does anyone know the name of the campsite/pub where we can camp at the Inlands? Do we have to book in advance or can we just rock up?

Check out this link for accomodation close to the club
From the carsington web-page
I think the one we want is the Knockerdown Pub is the one that Dave is talking about, however the 200 metres one also sounds interesting.

The pub site is one side of the road and the other site opposite, on the junction just before the sailing club. No real difference in distance but they must have measured across the site to the pub to get the half mile!

Oh and I think the pub one looked more Lark friendly!

Really excited to attend this event for the first time, just wondering if anyone has the cost for;
Cheers Neil and Soph
(P.S. Lark socials are ten times better than 200s, a little observation from looe)

Check out link off front page - answer is £30 entry, I'm afraid I don't know about the cost of camping, but you could always try your 'pulling' trick!
Hopefully see you there,

Just trying to figure out logistics.
What time is the first start on Saturday? And, is anyone thinking of heading up on Friday night?
Liking the sound of the Pie and Pint evening!

I'm coming to the inlands but i have one small problem. i need a crew. Any suggestions gratefully recieved. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm taking a three man tent so someone can share it if they need accomodation.

Chris, i can probably offer you floor space at our place in northampton on the friday night if you want?
I think Ally, Si, Kate and Ward are probably staying here as well, so it could be turned into a social occasion too. There is a beer festival just down the road after all!

Great to see all this interest in the Inlands, and I can assure you Dan has excelled himself organising a great venue and a great racing and social program.
PLEASE can those that are coming use this link to enter
as this is currently not happening.
The club need confirmed numbers in order to cater for us at the pie and pea/pint evening.
Thanks in advance,

Just a reminder - To camp at the closest (and best) camp-site at the Knockerdown Pub give them a ring to reserve your place, 01629 540209, and mention you’re a Lark. They're ready and waiting for your call!

Not just any measurer but the one and the only Chief Measurer... Christopher Biglin himself. He will need beers buying of course.
Smash - I hear a rumour that you are trying out a new cut North main? Is this true?

Yep that's right. Also look out for a complete new set from a new Sailmaker.
