Who is doing it?
This event is for TEAMS OF TWO people only.
We invite back everyone who took part the previous year. Once we have an idea of numbers we are able to invite people off our waiting list. We always wish we could accommodate everyone, but we are very limited on numbers due to physical space and the tide.
To join our waiting list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
