WOBYC RACING SET TO RESUME ON 6th DECEMBER

UPDATED ON DECEMBER 2nd

Due to the 2nd National Lockdown, the WOBYC Winter Programme couldn’t start in November but we are ready to begin racing on Sunday 6th December. Racing is for Dinghies and Squibs.  Each fleet will, as usual, get 2 races but they will be run back-to-back instead of having a break between them. The first start times are: Mixed Dinghies (fast and slow handicap sail together) 10.15; Squibs 10.21. The dinghies are likely to sail ‘average lap’ handicap races – so don’t forget to sail through the gate (between the start-line distance marks) at the end/start of each lap.

Apart from toilets, the clubhouse will be closed to competitors and spectators. Bring your own drinks and snacks!

AGM postponed until 11th December

The WOBYC AGM will be held online on Friday 11th December (1 week later than originally planned). Details have been emailed to members.
