This year we are having to adapt to a new normal and make the most of what we can do within both government and RYA guidelines. To that end, we are unable to host a regatta in the usual sense, so we plan to offer a weekend of events just for our members on Sat & Sun 1-2 August. Prizes will be awarded in the form of vouchers for the BYC Bar, or Bosun Bob’s. Whilst there won’t be our usual regatta tea or use of the inside of the clubhouse, why not bring your deckchair and sandwiches and enjoy the summer weather. The outside bar will be open, but please remember to adhere to social distancing!
On Saturday morning, we will host our Cadet Regatta (full details and online booking available Wednesday 29th) and Saturday afternoon will see a similar format to our current Sunday racing, but with a Committee Boat windward start first gun 1424. More details, including start times, will be published in the NoR and SI
On Sunday morning there will be a Ladies Race using the Club Picos, briefing at 0930, start at 1030 and must be booked online. If the weather’s good why not bring your lunch down and stay and enjoy the afternoon’s events too?
There will be a Regatta swim at 1330, and we’re encouraging all our swimming members to go for a dip – however, if you’re not a regular swimmer, why not give it a try?
And finally at 1500 we’ll have our SUP race starting from the South Slipway. The course will be dependent on the weather conditions, again with prizes for the speedy (And perhaps even stylish) paddlers. Please bring your own board and gear (buoyancy aids must be worn).
