SPRING REGATTA 2021

 

Sunday, 16th May 2021

 

A one-day club regatta with two river races for each of River Cruiser Class and Allcomers

 

Race Officer: Colin and Liz Chettleburgh

 

Having taken into account the RYAs guidelines, the EACC Committee is delighted that the Spring Regatta can go ahead on 16 May on the understanding that members respect the Government guidelines on Covid 19 in place on the date of this event and that if circumstances change this decision may be reversed so keep an eye on the website. Currently the RYA guidelines can be found here

 

A risk assessment has been undertaken by the committee, considering members’ concerns, and hopefully enabling participants to feel as safe as possible with the arrangements made. The committee recognises that some members may still not feel comfortable participating in this event. The decision on whether to participate or not must rest entirely with individual members. 

 

The racing will follow the normal format as shown in the programme below, but please note the following special provisos which take precedence over the sailing instructions:


ENTRIES

  • Entries to both am and pm races must be made by 6pm Friday 14th May using the email link at the bottom of the regatta programme below. There will be no briefing and no signing in.
  • Entrants will be signed up to a Spring Regatta WhatsApp group which may be used to communicate further information as needed.
  • If any non-competitors would like live information on the racing on the day, please email the skipper with your request.   

ON THE MOORINGS

  • The Club moorings will be strictly limited to those running the racing and manning the safety boatMooring holders who are participating may of course access their boats but are requested not to return to their moorings until after the racing has finished. 
  • There will be no evening social activity and the club BBQ will not be available and there is to be no mooring on the club frontage overnight.

SAFETY

  • Competitors are required to wear personal floatation devices when racing to reduce any potential demand on safety (RYA guidance). This will be signified by the flying of code flag Y (yellow with diagonal red stripes). 
  • There will be one safety boat manned for this regatta. In an emergency, please post a message on the EACC Spring 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.
