After a torrid summer of lock-down, social distancing and isolation, The Solway Yacht Club is organising:
RNLI Regatta (one race) on Saturday 5th September
Start: 1250 HW 1420
Pre-race briefing two-metre-socially-distancing at 1130 hrs on the pierhead
SYC Club Championship (two races) on Sunday 6th September
Start: 1320 HW 1450
Prizegiving two-metre-socially-distancing at 1600 hrs on the pierhead
All three races above count towards the SYC Club Championship
All SYC members are invited to take part, with races to include all classes of sailing vessel and all handicaps. We hope that you can be with us to compete or to watch.
All events can take place within Scottish Government Covid-19 regulations. Every competitor must read and understand the attached RYA Guidelines before entering any of the above races. Due to the regulations, entries will only be accepted from club members.
Come changed as the Clubhouse changing rooms are closed for changing, but WCs will open under strict protocols (one in – one out; sanitisers; masks, etc.). (Do not use the Kippford public WCs on the day because of the large number of visitors from anywhere and everywhere).
Entry monies for the RNLI Regatta will be through voluntary contributions on Webcollect, remembering that RNLI’s charity shops have been closed and fundraising ventures severely curtailed this year - yet their rescue missions and outgoings have not.
