  • Entries are restricted to 25 boats. Entries must be made in advance. Please complete the entry form online and email it to sailing@wobyc.com by Friday 9th October. The entry fee (£10) should be paid directly into the club account (details are on the entry form).
  • There will not be a briefing but the Sailing Instructions will be posted on this website.
  • The races will be back-to-back. Don’t assume there will be time to come ashore between races.
  • Just 1 parent per competitor, please! – This is to avoid having a lot of people at the club at any one time.
  • The club toilets will be open but not the changing rooms. The bar will be open from 12.00 but there are strict Covid-19 instructions to be followed so please read the notices around the club. Parents can watch the racing from the club grounds or from the park surrounding the club – and there are cafes nearby.
  • Competitors are advised to bring their own drinks and snacks.
  • Car parking is in the public pay-and-display car park next to the dinghy park, The cost is £4 per day. Pay with cash or using your mobile phone.

Please note: If the weather forecast is bad, we will make a decision on Saturday by 7 pm whether or not to cancel the event. Please keep an eye on the WOBYC website home page for a cancellation notice. Hopefully it won’t come to that but in these Covid times, we’re being rather cautious and wouldn’t want people turning up at the club unnecessarily.

 

Please be aware that the broad can be very crowded at times with people on paddleboards, in kayaks, etc and many won’t realise or understand what we’re doing! Similarly, anglers don’t realise we can’t always see their fishing lines.

Please be considerate. We’re not the only ones keen to get on the water and enjoy our sport.

If you suspect you have Covid-19 symptoms, please stay away – and get well soon!

LASER OPEN MEETING – Sunday 4th October 2020

Sailing Instructions
Entry Form
Map of the Approximate Position of Race Marks

  • 3 races, first start 11.06. If all 3 races are sailed, you count your best 2 results.
  • Entries must be made in advance. Please complete the entry form online and email it to sailing@wobyc.com by Saturday 3rd October. The entry fee (£5) should be paid directly into the club account (details are on the entry form).
  • When filling in the entry form, state which rig you intend to use, i.e. standard, radial or 4.7. Finishing times will be recorded and handicaps applied. Please note that it is intended for the races to be run back-to-back with only limited time between races. We know that 4.7 rigs go well in breezy conditions but are not so quick in light winds so, depending on conditions and the number of starters, WOBYC reserves the right to sail the 4.7s as a separate fleet. This is to reduce the time the faster boats may have to spend waiting for 4.7s to finish.
  • If you change your mind about which rig to use, email sailing@wobyc.com before 8 am on the day of the event.
  • There will not be a briefing but the Sailing Instructions will be posted on this website.
  • The club toilets will be open but not the changing rooms. The bar will be open from 12.00 but there are strict Covid-19 instructions to be followed so please read the notices around the club.
  • Competitors are advised to bring their own drinks and snacks. Spectators are welcome but must abide by the Covid-19 instructions.
  • The prize-giving will be in the dinghy park!

Please note: If the weather forecast is bad, we will make a decision on Saturday by 7 pm whether or not to cancel the event.
