For 2018 the CRA will have an enclosure at First Post Corner in Fen Ditton which gives an excellent view of the races, and we will be pleased to welcome competitors' families and non-participating members of CRA clubs to watch from a somewhat safer vantage point than the towpath. Well-behaved children are welcome, and parents are reminded that children remain their responsibility whilst in the enclosure. Well behaved dogs are also welcome, but MUST be kept on leads, and any mess cleared up. If you bring a dog please DO NOT let it swim in the river.
The enclosure will be open on Tuesday 17th July, Wednesday 18th, Thursday 19th July and Friday 20th July.
Our arrangements for each evening are very informal. Milton Brewery will be providing a fully licensed bar, serving beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks, and pies will be available
You are welcome to bring a picnic, but no barbecues please. Please ensure that no glass of any sort is brought on to the site, as livestock is kept on it for the remainder of the year – so no glass wine glasses, or wine/beer etc in glass bottles. Decant into plastic containers before you leave home. Please take any rubbish home with you.
There are a limited number of chairs and tables in the enclosure so you might like to put folding chairs or a rug in the boot of your car, to ensure you have somewhere to sit for the evening. The gate to the field is manned.
It would be helpful if you could bring as few cars as possible for the size of your party, as the car park's capacity is finite. Car Parking will cost £2 per car.
To get to the First Post Enclosure in Fen Ditton you drive past the Plough PH and it is on the left almost at the end of the road – postcode CB5 8SX. Parking is available on the Enclosure field and there are toilets on site. Division race times are 4.55; 5.35; 6.15; 6.55; 7.35; 8.10 and 8.45 pm.
