Online entry opens
This years online entry system will open on Mon 15th June 2015 Please note you are not just entering a watersports event, but you are immersing yourself into a watersports festival environment which has very different aims and associated costs.
I have decided not to give free NWF T shirts away this year, but instead offer a 10% discount to this who secure their festival experience tickets before the 1st Aug 2015.
Festival experience ticket
A Festival Experience ticket includes 3.5 days parking & camping, 3 days of on water activities, racing, demo, clinics, tasters, 1 x party tickets for both night entry and the option to purchase a NWF T shirt at discounted price….. You can bolt on extra party tickets and camping admin charges within this festival experience ticket all of which will gain the 10% discount if purchased together as a bundle before the 1st Aug
This year The Heathrow Jets will be playing on Friday night and we have Andy Lewis and his band called The Perfect Blue on the Saturday night with a fancy dress theme of mods & rockers.
We will be hosting a series of online competitions over the following months through twitter so if your not already following us it maybe wise too… @nwf_festival.
We will be offering a quieter family camping area and you will be able to add this to your online entry. Plus we are going to implement a one off admin charge of £10 for any additional pers over the age of 16 to assist in the real estate costs associated with running a vast area which we occupy, revenue generated will go towards: marshalling, barriers, portable toilets, shower tokens, cleaning, security fire appliances, first aid, all of which are required to be provided and dare I say all cost all and above a normal event. So for example if you purchase a festival experience ticket, that entitles you and with your plot to camp. Additional additional pers over the age of 16 staying in the same plot will require to pay a charge of £10. They will be issued a wrist band at registration when you are on site and monitored over the weekend.
One or Two day entry
This year we are offering a option for one or two day entry into the event, however this does not include over night parking/camping or indeed party tickets.
We have even more trade joining us NWF 2015.
There will be a Howard Plumb memorial race held on Sat 5th Sept at this years NWF.. You can find out more about Howard, his life and his fantastic windsurfing talent and achievements here:
Finally I am not going to get dragged into the debate. Does the NWF represents good value for money etc…. All Id say it costs £20 per night to overnight park on Hayling seafront and you get nothing apart from a parking spot!
Just a little thank you to those who have loyally supported NWF and its concept…
I just wanted to highlight some of the fundamental changes for NWF 2015 and I look forward to delivering another iconic NWF. Bring it on!
