Caravan and Motorhome Club announces sponsorship of English National Surf Championships


Operated by Surfing England and held over the first May bank holiday weekend from 29 April to 1 May 2017, the annual national contest – now in its 44th year – will see women and men of all ages battle it out across 19 divisions in Perranporth, Cornwall, a huge beach famed for its spectacular surfing.

Harvey Alexander, director of marketing, the Caravan and Motorhome Club commented:

“The English National Surfing Championships are one of the highlights of the UK surfing calendar and every year draws scores of competitors and spectators to the south west to enjoy a thrilling competition in spectacular surroundings. The Caravan and Motorhome Club has some fantastic sites close to surfing beaches and there is always somewhere for surfers to dry their wetsuits after a long day on the waves.”

Nick Rees, operations manager, Surfing England said:

"It's great to work closely with the Caravan and Motorhome Club on such a prestigious event. For a company that provides for surfers to then support the event, our organisation and our exciting vision for surfing, is brilliant. We couldn't ask for a better partner on the journey."  

Entries are now open and surfing enthusiasts and extreme spectators alike can also book their perfect break to Cornwall to coincide with one of the highlights of the UK surfing calendar.
