The latest advice from Government and the ISA is that training can recommence for pods of up to 15 on Monday May 10th and formal racing on Monday June 7th. Accordingly we will begin practice racing for keelboats on Tuesday May 18th for three weeks. Please note that this is practice only and whilst results will be calculated there will be no prizes and the practice races will not count towards the Sailor of the Year award. Series 2 of our formal racing will commence on Tuesday June 8th. It will be a 4 races series only with one discard if all races are completed. A formal amendment to the SIs will appear shortly.
Dinghy training will also commence shortly and further details will be available from the dinghy secretary and class captains.
