Campsite at Newport Boat Club

If you are camping, mention that you are part of the rowing race so
that they can put you into the same field as the rest of the rowers,
If you are sleeping in a van you can park along side the tents, But if
you have a camper van or mobile home you must book now, as they are
very restricted on how many camper van/mobile homes they can have.
Hope this info helps.
