Return to Racing

Update Issued 03 August 2020

Dear all,

Well, here it is! The document attached to the link below has been approved by The Department of Digital Culture Media & Sport (DCMS), under the Return to Recreational Team Sport Framework (RtRTF). If we follow this guidance, then we are allowed to recommence crewed yacht racing with participants from different households, just like that!

Please, take some time to read through this carefully as there will inevitably be some interpretation, adaption and tolerance required.

Your Committee will meet shortly to discuss this in a little more detail with the intention of writing a Notice of Race which will reflect this new guidance, for the Ferguson race on the 16th August.

If this works out, we can do similar for the subsequent races as scheduled in the fixture list. There is quite a bit of work to be done to get this going so bear with us.
