SUPPORT / COACH BOATS (RIBs and motor boats)
UPDATE 26 March VERY Important
Ribs and coach boats – April 30 deadline
There has been an update on support ribs/coach boats. These can be moored in Marina di San Rocco but I need confirmation from everyone who is taking their own Rib (coachboat) or chartering one when you get there. Please e-mail me in any event – even if you have already indicated you are bringing one when you entered.
The normal marina fee for the mooring is 39 Euros per day. But if you book the marina berth through me Golly the negotiated discount makes the fee:
-10 Euros/day for the ribs booked (through Golly) before the 30th April
-but 20 Euros/day for bookings (through Golly) for bookings on or after 1 May.
Payment will be by you, directly to the marina, on arrival for the event.
The following documents are needed to be presented at registration for ribs
-driver document (ID card or driving licence)
-boat registration/ownership documents
Safey Cover – Important
We need 12 ribs to volunteer to help with safety to run the championships. If you are bringing a support rib please can you let me know by email if you would be prepared to be part of the safety cover. I will be going out to Grosseto at the beginning of May and will need to know by then how many support ribs we will have for safety cover. Many thanks.
Old info but some still relevant folowing the update above
All support boats attending the championships are requested to register on line by ticking the box at the bottom of the entry form.
All support boats must show their original insurance documents at registration.
Approximately 12 support boats will be required to join the rescue fleet. Any support boat willing to be part of the rescue fleet is requested to indicate this fact by ticking the relevant box on the entry form.
Any support boat requested to join the rescue fleet will be entitled to a 50 Euro contribution to fuel expenses at the end of the week and free parking on the beach. A tractor will tow all local RIBs up on the beach at the Club and will do the same for any RIBs joined into the rescue fleet free of charge.
There are two marinas in Grosetto where RIBs may be kept overnight at the official marina berthing rates. Alternatively the Club tractor can recover RIBs on the beach for a fee (to be confirmed).
There is plenty of accommodation of all types available – tents, chalet cabins, self catering apartments with various numbers of rooms, hotels, etc. Camper vans are allowed to park in the club grounds.
Our local representative in Grosseto, who can help you with booking accommodation and possible discounts is the Event is S.E.B. ( SPORT EVENT BUREAU). Advising on and arranging local accomodation to suit the requirements of families visiting is what they do. All the local accomodation owners are used to working with S.E.B.

Camper vans – VERY IMPORTANT update 26 March
Unfortunately due to the severe forest fires near Grosseto last summer the local authorities have now banned campervans from parking overnight at the club. This changes the original information on the website. The club have agreed a new place with the local authority close to the club where campervans can park. This area will have ‘all’ amenities. There is a cost involved but I have not got this information yet or the address.
If you are bringing a campervan please email me to let me know and as soon as I get further information I will be able to email you directly with the update.
This is in addition to indicating on the booking form if you will be bringing a camper van.
There is plenty of space for parking your car and storing road trailers and trolleys at the club.
