Entries Open 19th May 2012?
Ooooh - does that mean partying afterwards then???
I was half way through booking my flight for this today and un-checking all the unnecessary boxes when the insurance one got me thinking. They were offering a £12 single trip deal which actually isn't too bad for normal circumstances ... however, an expensive bike and a daft endurance race weren't specified as covered in the small print so it got me thinking, what have people who've done these abroad races before done about insurance ?
Personally I manage with an annual multi trip insurance (will need to renew mine). I dont think it includes 'dangerous' sports, and even with the 'premium' policy I normally get the insurance wouldnt cover the cost of my tri bike and all the associated kit.Ive never investigated the cost of 'dangerous sports' cover and/or looked at more specific policies that would cover all my kit but being risk adverse I take a chance on it.I think the BTA offer a level of insurance included in membership (though not sure if that includes overseas events), they may also have links to insurers on their website?There may have been threads on this topic before, I know ive seen them about bike insurance, ill have a look.
Do a search, there are a number of older threads
All the Nation tri memberships (England, Scotland, and even Wales) do offer international personal injury insurance. Triarthlon Scotland is 15 quid cheaper than the other two ??????
For international marathons I've always used Global Travel Insurance which does cover you for 'extreme' sports. I made a claim once and after much arguing and throwing my toys around they did eventually pay!
Probably realised they were dealing with a posh git from Upper Wokingham or downtown Finchampstead or wherever you were claiming your house to be that week
nah, just told them my sister lived in Sandhurst, which is near Yateley...and they caved!!

I thought we were waiting on Schmunks & yourself locating these feckin apartments following our conversation at the JW? Failing that I'll just nominate base camp!
Oh..Ok then, after a bit of digging:This is the villa where we stayed in 2007http://www.oceanclubholidays.com/site/pages/ui_property_details.aspx?PropertyID=9This is the apartment complex "Club Oceano" we visited, which I believe is part of the same organisation who run the villa'shttp://www.oceanclubholidays.com/site/pages/ui_properties.aspx?Complex=COI think we decided the latter was the preferred option!Suggest someone (or I can) contacts the Club Oceano to see how many apartments they have available and the cost for Thu-Tue? (quote I got for a 1 bedroom was £160) and Tue - Tue?
The location of the 2007 100 meters (20 lengths) competitions

Is anyone else thinking about the Tuesday 14th to Thursday 23rd?
Top Organising Barlos ..... I am astounded !!!I am intending Tuesday to Thursday as well but will go with the majority for ease as I can stay with a friend at other times
I would say once you go through the booking process it shows the availability and it seems to be ok, what it doesnt say tho is how many they have .. lets hope they get back to you soon !
