Wyldecrest Parks to host World Championship


Wyldecrest Parks is tremendously proud to announce that the company’s application to host the 2018 Fly Casting World Championship has been successful, allowing Port Haverigg Marina Village Holiday Park to be the stage of a recognised multinational competition.

The Fly Casting World Championship, which is held in August every two years, is owned by the Norwegian Casting Federation. In 2018, it will be the fifth event of its kind and it’s coming to the UK, directly to Wyldecrest Parks’ stunning holiday park in Millom, Cumbria, after having taken place in Estonia this year. With the valuable help of AAPGAI Master Instructor Lee Cummings, who lives right next to the holiday site and uses its lake all the time, Wyldecrest Parks took the chance… and succeed!

The championship is a six discipline competition: five distance casting events and one accuracy casting event. In total, there will be 36 medals up for the taking. And Port Haverigg Marina Village Holiday Park will be more than ready to welcome the world!

I can’t picture a better scenario and location to stage this reputable world-class event”, says Alfie Best, the Wyldecrest Parks’ Chairman.


As revealed before, this breath-taking holiday park, which has an outstanding 200-acre fresh water lake right next to the sea, is under a massive development and upgrade programme that includes, amongst others, a brand new luxury leisure complex being built alongside the stunning caravans and lodges already available. In 2017, the holiday park will also see its hire fleet exponentially increased, just in time for a brand new season. Recently, the park has also received Cumbria’s first and only WakePark and one of only very few in the UK that run both boat and cable boat towed sports.

We are in no doubt that our site has the World class facilities required to host such a prestigious competition and we also have the ancillary facilities on site to welcome large numbers of both competitors and spectators alike to make the championship a benchmark for years to come”, Michael Wilds, the company’s Senior Holiday Sales Manager guarantees.
