Richard Bowers, Martin Pascoe (OD) and I have decided that the event this weekend will be postponed.

Saturday is a no no and many boats have said they will not race on Sunday. I have taken a poll of most of you and eleven entries out of sixteen have expressed support for a postponement. One day’s racing with half the boats missing is not a regatta. Let’s hope that we can find another weekend and maintain the legacy of last year’s brilliant event.

Thank you all for entering and particular thanks to the volunteer race team. Martin, Julie, and Megan Pascoe, Pete Bell and Helen Middleton Stewart, Celia Rushton and John Tonks.

Sunny days ahead
