The world has changed since the club forced by the Covid-19 pandemic to abandon racing in the 2020 Spring Series & Championship after just one day on the water.
In normal times over the eight days of the regatta in excess of one hundred members volunteer to perform race management duties to make a team of people that set courses, lay marks, start races, record and publish results. Each volunteer has a unique set of personal circumstances and it is likely that the pandemic will prevent some giving their time in 2021.
Given this unprecedented situation the club has decided to scale down the 2021 series in order to reduce the number of volunteers that will be required should government directives allow yacht racing to take place in April 2021.
We wish all our competitors and volunteers good health through the winter months and we look forward to providing Spring Championship Racing on the weekends of 17/18th & 24/25th April 2021. The club plans to run a full Spring Series in 2022.
Entries for 2021 will open early in January. Previous competitors will be notified of our plans by email and members wanting to join the 2021 volunteer team will have the opportunity to do so via the Members Portal, further details will be published in Lobsters Log.
