This year we have a watery theme. The rally is titled " Home from the Sea! " .... all the locations are RNLI Lifeboat Stations !
Visit the locations and take a photo of your bike with the required Lifeboat station in the background. Take arty unusual viewpoint photos by all means but keep those ones for yourself. All we want you to upload is a nice bog standard photo of the station with your bike. Nothing fancy. Also this year, no Aerial drone photos please.
Upload your photos using a unique link we will provide, You can upload your photos one at a time, in groups or all together whenever you like. It is also possible to use your unique link to upload photos instantly " in the field" when you take them on your phone camera if you wish. No faffing about with camera memory cards or cables to your computer.
This year we have introduced a number of changes. As the event has grown, the original format required a lot of behind the scenes work to manage the website and photo albums. Changes were necessary to reduce the workload behind the scenes.
1. There will be NO Rider table, nor links to individuals albums displayed on the website. Riders will receive their upload link as per normal. The only people able to view the album is the rider ,ourselves and anyone the rider chooses to share the viewing link with.
2. The web page will show an up to date total number of riders currently entered in the event. No individual names will be listed
3. The minimum number of locations to be uploaded to receive a "bronze" certificate has been increased to 10.
4. We have decided to discontinue the monthly " brief" location.
5. The €10 entry fee has been switched to £10 GBP entry fee. This is due to banking fees being incurred through paypal which we can no longer sustain and a general increase in costs such as website, postage and location research costs. At current exchange rates, It is a very modest increase in the entry fee which has not increased in over ten years. Switching to Sterling avoids a larger Euro increase and rip off Paypal banking charges.
6. READ the PDF file download . It contains IMPORTANT information
7. There is a location this year that requires TWO photos to successfully achieve it.
8. We don't care what motorcycles you use.
Full Instructions will be forwarded as usual by email upon payment of the entry fee .
The deadline for entry is 30th May 2023. You must have submitted the entry fee by that date, in order to
receive an upload link for the event.
