The board masters event WIIL go ahead from

Wednesday 11th August 2021 till Sunday 15th August 2021

Just a heads up if any one was thinking of visiting Newquay on those days/dates.

Given the chaos of previous years, it's certainly worth avoiding attempting to get there by train.

I presume the direct Paddington to Newquay services will be in operation?

Planned for this summer ... so it should be.  But London surfboards via Salisbury again?

Perhaps they will extend a Plymouth service for a few days to cover it?

If not - well I guess people will just go by road instead.

It looks very curious in the timetable (above) though - with two summer services each way running non-stop between Par and Newquay where the services after mid September call at all stations.   And one of them (at least) does not offer a London connection at Par - a brief look at Real  Time Trains suggests two changes to get to London off the morning express from Newquay.  Surely I have read this wrong?

There are some through trains in RTT» (Real Time Trains - website) from late June, not always the same ones and not on all days of the week to start with. Maybe they are still thinking aloud on a computer about them.

From the CrossCountry Trains website:

'Our new timetable commences on Sunday 16 May. We are continuing to operate a special timetable on some routes to keep services running throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

With the continuing need to run fewer but longer trains for the foreseeable future, this year we will not be operating the summer weekend train services to and from Newquay. Or the enhanced Saturday service to and from Paignton.'

Also nowadays CrossCountry services to Penzance have been cut by around two thirds compared to pre-Covid levels.
