Urgent Message re Cardiff Race Docks Access: Because of security concerns with the Port Authority, we have had to change the entrance that we are using to access the venue. The post code for this entrance is CF10 4LY.
The best approach is exit 33 M4. Follow the dual carriage way approx 8 miles until you pass under a short tunnel and arrive at a roundabout. Take the 2nd exit (this is nearly back on… yourself) and travel 200m to a T Junction. Turn Left at the T. Be careful after a in few meters the road splits. You must keep to the left and follow the road straight ahead. The right hand split is a dead end. I will try and get a sign there for tomorrow. There will be NO ACCESS after 10.00pm & before 8am Saturday & Sunday.
Cathy Bird has kindly provided the results from Lochearnhead. A big thanks to the Scottish for putting on a great weekend of ski racing.
