Lockdown 2 – No Club Racing!

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.

Building Update

Today a survey to look for bats on our site was completed in order to comply with one of the conditions on our planning permission. Fortunately, no bats were found on our site which means our building project can go ahead in the spring with no disturbance to the local wildlife.

Planning Update

Today a Balcony Committee meeting was held with our architect to discuss the contract with the builders as well as the funding for the project. It may not look like much is going on at the clubhouse just yet, but there is currently a huge amount of work going on behind the scenes! Thank you to everyone who is putting their own time and effort into this project.

Fundraising Goal

We’ve currently got over £25,000 of donations as well as a further £5,000 of pledged donations. This means we’re now over halfway to our fundraising goal!
