ENTRIES

  • Entries to both races must be made by 6pm Friday 9th October using the email link below. There will be no briefing and no signing in.
  • Entrants will be signed up to an Autumn Regatta WhatsApp group which may be used to communicate further information as needed. If it is necessary to cancel the event due to an adverse weather forecast or changes to the Covid regulations entrants will be informed in good time via the WhatsApp group.

ON THE MOORINGS

  • The Club moorings will be strictly limited to those running the racing and manning the safety boat. Mooring holders who are participating may of course access their boats but are requested not to return if the race team are on site.
  • There will be no social activity at the club site (RYA guidance).

SAFETY

  • Competitors and safety boat crew are required to wear personal floatation devices to reduce any potential demand on safety (RYA guidance).
  • The safety boat will be used to finish the morning race and to start the afternoon race.  
  • We have only commissioned one safety boat for use this year so rescue facilities will be limited. In an emergency, please post a message on the Autumn Regatta WhatsApp Group and the safety boat will respond.  There will be no ferrying of club members to or from the Club site with the exception of those involved in the race management unless an emergency arises (RYA guidance).
  • All the equipment used on the club site and on the safety boat will be sanitised before and after use and OODs and safety boat crews will wear gloves as appropriate.
