YARE & BURE ONE DESIGN OPEN 2020

Saturday, 26th September 2020

 

Venue: Thurne Mouth

 

Race Officer: Tom Moore

 

Due to Covid 19, the EACC Committee decided that we should not use the usual format for the YBOD weekend. However, the good news is that having consulted the RYA and other bodies, we feel we can adhere to the current Government guidelines and run a one-day event for YBODs with three races. We will however limit the entry to 15 boats – it may be necessary to split the starts for additional safety.

Do come and join us for some great river racing in a friendly social distanced environment to make the most of this bizarre sailing season.

 

MOORING: Please note there will be no mooring available on the club frontage on the day (opposite Thurne Dyke). There is mooring for 24 hrs on both sides of Thurne Dyke. The club moorings will only be available for use by berth holders and those organising the racing. There will be no evening event organised.  

 

ENTRIES:

  • Entries will be on a first come first served basis and limited to 15 boats.
