With the dust hardly settled from our last meeting at Avery Hill, we are back in action at Minnis Bay on Sunday. Those who don’t know the venue probably need to know the following ….

  • We meet at the main car park behind The Minnis pub and restaurant (CT7 9QP).
  • It’s a flat and featureless course (6+ miles - single circuit), punctuated by a number of deep dykes and standing water – all on soft ground.
  • The traditional start on the beach is in doubt as high tide is 11.30 on Sunday (the main race starts at 11 am).
  • It is always windy and there are no trees or any form of protection on this course.
  • There are no buildings to escape from the weather into – registration and presentation will be out in the open.
  • Changing is in the cars – no showers. There are public toilets and a café on the promenade.
  • There is a junior race starting at 10.20am
