LAST YEAR 2021

 

OOD  Malcolm Duffield (ill so actually Liz Ollier) has advised that depending on the weather on the day the current plan is for the racing to be as per printed programme save that the start is going to be at or near Thurne Mouth.
OOD reserves the right to amend course on the day. 

 

ENTRIES
Entries to both races must be made by 9pm Saturday 9th October using the email link at the bottom of this page. There will be no briefing and no signing in. Entrants will be signed up to an Autumn Regatta WhatsApp group which may be used to communicate further information as needed. If it is necessary to cancel the event due to an adverse weather forecast or changes to the Covid regulations entrants will be informed in good time via the WhatsApp group.
 
ON THE MOORINGS
There will be no organised social activity at the club site.
 
SAFETY
Competitors and safety boat crew are required to wear personal floatation devices to reduce any potential demand on safety.
The safety boat will be used to finish the morning race and to start the afternoon race.  Rescue facilities may be limited. In an emergency, please post a message on the Autumn Regatta WhatsApp Group and the safety boat will respond.  There will be no ferrying of club members to or from the Club site with the exception of those involved in the race management unless an emergency arises.
