[2016] Batz island slalom, Dec 18

Post by Vincent Tanguy » Wed Oct 05, 2016 8:00 pm

Ladies and Gentlemen,

we're happy to announce you the 11th edition of the Batz Island Slalom, on the small and lovely Batz Island. The concept of the contest is to keep it very simple : no starting ramps, hand timer, a good mood and the possibility to discover the landscapes of our area (West Brittany / Bretagne, Western France). If you fancy some winter skate vacations, you're welcome here !

Location of the contest : https://www.google.fr/maps/@48.7437439, ... .06z?hl=fr (near the lighthouse).

Schedule : Sunday, December 18th
- We take the boat (around 8€ per person) at Roscoff harbour at 11h30 https://www.google.fr/maps/@48.7266366, ... !1e3?hl=fr
- Lunch at "La Cassonade" (good one, believe me !) : http://www.lacassonade.fr/
- Runs from around 1.30pm to 4pm. Probably 3 runs each, best time counts. Announce of the results.
- Another stop at "La Cassonade" for a hot chocolate to wait for the return boat (5pm).
