End of Lockdown Regatta – Sunday 4th April
Races for Waveneys, Squibs and BOD’s in April will count towards a ‘Warm up series’ with the main points series to start in May. (This excludes the End of Lockdown Regatta) This is to give owners a chance to work on their boats before the main series starts.
In this 2nd period of National Lockdown there are various restrictions on sailing clubs, including WOBYC. All club racing and other activities are suspended and the club is closed for the duration of the lockdown. Therefore, our Winter race programme won’t be able to start until December 6th at the earliest. However, we are still allowed to sail on the Broad as individuals although we must follow the rule that says we can only do this alone or with people from our own household/support bubble or with just one person from another household. The latest guidance from the RYA is here. Please read it.
