    75th D-Day Anniversary June 1st-8th 2019

    I'm organising a trip for next year for the 75th which may be the last "Biggie" I did it for the 65th and 70th about 60 attended including some from UKGSER a good time was had by all.

    The site is the same as the 65th and 70th http://www.camping-cote-de-nacre.com/accueil-en.htm

    A good central place to base yourself for all the events and only a few miles from the Caen ferry port if you chose the Portsmouth - Caen route,

    The location is Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer and will offer camping pitches and chalets, pool, Bar and Restaurant on-site, and you may be pleased to know that children are more or less absent from the site at this time of year.


    I will be there from 1st to 8th but you can book any duration you wish,

    Travel, routes and ferries are up to you to arrange,

    Booking on-line wont be available until the end of July/August 2018 and will be at next years tariff, The site will fill quickly up-to the end of this year so get in early to secure your accommodation or pitch.

    Booking can only be made by contacting the site directly on 0033-231-971445 http://www.camping-cote-de-nacre.com/accueil-en.htm

    If you decide to go and have booked drop me a pm or post on the thread so I have an idea of names and numbers,


    Hope to see you there!

    When you say that you are "organising a trip", can you be more specific about what is being offered once people have sorted out their ferries, routes there and pitch bookings?

    Booking

    Hi Mark,

    Have you booked anything yet?
    I was there for the 70th and will be for the 75th.
    Went solo last time, and am interested in joining a group this time.

    I'd been looking for hotels (unsuccessfully) and just stumbled across this thread. I've just booked a two-bedroomed Premium cottage from 4-8th June I've stopped in St Aubin Sur Mer before and it's a nice little place in the Canadian sector of the D-Day beaches

    I’m sure you have done this already, I was in Normandy earlier this year with the Royal Marines Association Riders and on checking most campsites and hotels are fully booked out by the Associations from all allied countries and have been for some time. Just saying...
