The Start Field

You should arrive at the start field between 07.00 and 09.00. The entrance is opposite the ‘Furzeleigh Mill’ public house and because of the orientation of the gateway, vehicle entry will only be permitted from the Ashburton side so you should leave the A38 at the ‘Peartree’ junction. Do not approach from the Buckfastleigh/Totnes junction.

Ample parking is available at the start please do not park on the road or roadside verge, this will cause an obstruction. Before the raft is unloaded, the team leader should report to the check-in desk and produce the signed entry forms and sponsorship forms. Once your raft is unloaded in the assembly area all vehicles will need to move to the parking area.

There will be a compulsory safety briefing for team leaders before raft launch. On completion of the briefing team leaders will be issued with a wristband. Without the wristband a raft will not be permitted onto the water. All rafts will be inspected and once approved Rafts will be launched from 07.30
