We'll run introductions and a site briefing over a cuppa and bacon rolls both Saturday and Sunday morning at 9am.
We'll then head down to Marazion beach (The Hoxton Special to check out the spots) We'll run another site briefing for late comers at 11am.

(Neither spot is kiteable 2 hours either side of high tide)
Saturday evening we'll host a BBQ back at the camp site.
