RACING: Club racing is not expected to start before July.
Coronavirus situation – Racing and Social Events called off
Because of the Coronavirus situation and to comply with the Government’s guidelines to minimise social contact and avoid unnecessary travel, the decision has been made to stop racing temporarily at WOBYC with immediate effect.
This means the winter season has already come to an end. We will inform you as to when the prize-giving will be.
We will review this situation at the end of April. The Squib Broadland Regatta (March 28-29) is already cancelled as will be the Laser & Singehander open (April 5th). The Fitting Out Supper, Lady Mayhew race and the starts of the Saturday and Sunday summer points series will be postponed.
Squib Broadland Regatta – 28th-29th March 2020 CANCELLED
