Hightide Challenge – 17-19 May 2024.

With the changes in Covid-19 pandemic restrictions in Victoria, we are holding face-to-face activities.
Please subscribe to our mailing list or look at our calendar for more information.

Ynys Fawr and Stormhold have a line to draw… in the sand. To resolve this dispute, the baronies are holding a weekend of… measuring contests… to determine the full extent of each baronies’ territory with a weekend of beachside fun.

Delights will include:

  • Heavy and rapier tournaments
  • Lots of archery including roving rounds, target and combat
  • A small market for the shopping inclined
  • A delectable feast (the stewards have ‘shanghaied’ the talented Tosti Vicherovich Bogolyubskiy to provide the food)
  • Best parrot plumage competition!
  • and lots more!

So let the sirens lure you down to the sea as we answer the question: High tide line, or low?
