    All

    Thanks to those who recently submitted their interest for attending a Warm Weather Training camp in 2019.

    Unfortunately when we engaged La Santa to finalize costs/accommodation reservations based on the initial expressions of interest- we discovered that they have increased their accommodation costs by 30% (including restrictions on the room options).

    So we have reluctantly resigned ourselves to not being able to run a pure Piranha camp this year as was not cost competitive compared to last year or alternative offerings who seemed to have secured rooms before the price hike.

    Having said that – there are alternative externally run camps that may be of interest to members – details outlined below on best options we could find

    Option 1

      Run by: Joe Beer
      Dates 1st – 8th Feb
      Location Club La Santa, Lanzarote
      Camp cost € approx E250 [accommodation not included]
      Approx cost per person sharing 2 bed appt € E560
      Food included None – all self catering
      Contact details for more specific inquiries [email protected]

      Option 2

      Run by: Russell Cox
      Dates 3rd – 10th March
      Location Sands, Lanzarote (hotel not as good as La Santa e.g. 1 x 25 m pool versus 3 x 50 m heated pool in La Santa)
      Camp cost € approx E850 [includes accommodation based on 2 people sharing]
      Food included Half board – breakfast and dinner
      Contact details for more specific inquiries [email protected]

      Option 3

      Run by: Triathlon Ireland
      Dates 9th – 16th March
      Location Sands, Lanzarote (hotel not as good as La Santa e.g. 1 x 25 m pool versus 3 x 50 m heated pool in La Santa)
      Camp cost € approx E625 [includes accommodation based on two people sharing]
      Food included Breakfast only
      Contact details for more specific inquiries [email protected]

      Nb none of the above options include
      a) Flights: depend on availability – but budget circa €200 (+€40 per way for a bike box)
      b) Bike rental if not want to pack/bring your own bike: budget between €150-€200 depending on availability/bike type

      So if people still interested in going external – please complete the (yes yet another) survey indicating preference and we will try to get as many Piranhas on the same camp

      NB I am also looking for a WWT co-ordinator (for each camp if necessary) to help me with marshalling the troops on this – e.g. acting as main contact point on the camp you choose, setting up WA group to ensure all the Piranhas are in contact etc – so please PM via WA if keen to help for your camp selection.

      Regards

      Steven and Paul
