A real weekend to remember!
Bookings are now being accepted!
Website homepage updated to show date of 59th AWW.
We’ve received around thirty entries and bookings will close at midnight tonight. So, if you want to take part, get your application in ASAP.
As you will see from the above, we’re running another slimmed-down AWW this year, much as we did in 2020. Please see the info available to download via the buttons above.
Thanks for the many queries regarding booking for the AWW. At the moment the situation regarding COVID remains too fluid for us to commit to one or another form of event. However it it hoped that by early- to mid-August things will be clearer and that we will be able to hold some form of event. Our current view is that, most likely, it will be a much slimmed-down event much as we operated in 2020. But, as yet, we cannot make any solid plans. As soon as decisions are taken, this will be published on this webpage and on the AWW Facebook group. Thanks, Stuart
To keep within the prevailing COVID regulations, a limited field of 22 entrants took part in the 57th AWW: 16 singlers and 6 doublers. On the whole, the weather was favourable with clear views from Plynlimon. Four of the doublers retired on their return leg – conditions were very wet on their outward leg – but all the single crossers completed. Thanks to all who took part on what was a fantastic day!
Qualification requirements reduced from five to three previous successful completions.
Please note that this event is not endorsed by the LDWA.
COVID Special Announced!
COVID-19: Obviously at the moment we can’t say whether the next event will go ahead, or in what form. As the event involves accommodation at both ends and coach travel then social distancing will be difficult to maintain. However we will be monitoring events and government recommendations closely so please watch this space.
Thanks to all those who supported this year’s event. It was certainly another to remember! Timings will be published on this site in due course. Meanwhile please see our Facebook Group for more information and photos.
This morning all entrants should have received a bulletin relating to the event. Please contact the organiser if you have not received your copy.
Event is now closed to entries. A bulletin will be issued to all registered entrants later today. If you cannot attend then please advise us so that we may offer your place to another. See you next weekend!
Event now full! However we usually have a number of withdrawals leading up to the closing date so please register to put your name onto the reserve list.
OK so it’s still a bit ‘rough around the edges’ but we’ve finally replaced the old website which stood us in reasonable stead for more than twenty years. Topics such as History and Past Events will be transferred from the old website in due course, so please bear with us. However, if there’s some specific information you need but which you can’t find then please get in touch.
