Itchenor event w/c 8 August - thoughts?
Hey all, After the disappointment of the understandable decision to cancel Salcombe and the Champs we have been working on re-opening the club in an appropriate way. With Cowes Week now cancelled as well we are looking to hold a club race week over the w/c 8 August. This is a club racing event but there will be a merlin start, and visiting Merlins will be welcome to join for £25 a day (we have a pay-as-you-play scheme if you are unaware from the Winter Warmers). We will expect that this will be a 4 day event (starting Sat 8th) with 2 days of racing in Hayling Bay and 2 days of salcombe style river racing around the harbour. The club will be strictly following the government guidelines and RYA advice. So far this has worked well with people coming changed from their cars and changing rooms available for the loos only and cleaned regularly, with hand sanitisers available by all water sources. At this point we are keen to make it work, and therefore this post is both an advert and also checking interest levels. So please let me know if you are keen!

Its in my plans (govt guidelines depending)!
