I am planning on camping too, is there a designated Pirate spot or do you just follow the "aaargh"s?

Just follow the train of kebab wrappers and empty beer bottles...

On the outlaw website they've said it's not free and you have to book. Might be worth checking . U booked via email for leccy no deposit required.

They also have a list of local hotels with offers up.

got there at 10am Friday morning ,saw couple of flags in the caravan area, no tents at all. aside from the general public in very small numbers. Had the whole area to choose from and since I was not a pirate at the time and tend to like it quiet set up in the middle of knowwhere. By Friday tea time had met several pirates who set up in nearby and by Sat lunch it looked like a festival ..come early ...it's fun pre race . post race I was crippled nauseous etc , which made me less good company!

Sorry.... I'll be more careful with my rubbish this year!!

I'm guessing it will be much like last year - one of us, possibly me, will arrive Friday, grab a spot (same spot as last year??) fly the Pirate flag and head off to the pub after laying claim to half the camp site. Simples!

The camp site was turn up and pay on the day.

I got down there at half six Fri night, still loads of room, just had time to pitch tent and set stuff out before heading to the pub for a quick half

No need to book, just turn up and pay on the day and find the pirate area.  Loads of space.

Phew - I'll be panicing as it is without any extra stress!

BTW silly question ...

I've just been reading a book about someone doing IMUSA and he talked about wet suit strippers and people taking your bike in T2. Whats that all about?

EP - you need to bring dollar bills for the strippers!

In T1 they have people to strip the wetsuit from you at Outlaw. Though they ended up dragging me along the ground for a while. In T2 you hand your bike to someone who then racks it for you, saving you time.

FAB! I'm terrible at getting out of my wettie so I'll bring my $s although with the length of time it will take me to complete the swim they may be too wet to use

I trimmed about 2" off the legs after Outlaw. It was much easier the next time I used it.

I don't know why, but this really made me giggle - I've never been stripped before ... quite looking forward to it now

My sister was a stripper at Outlaw last year, she was shouting at people, "Sit down and I'll pull you off!".

Pass on my thanks. It took 2 people to tug mine!

I thought T1 times were a little on the long side.
