You can now download the Notice Of Race and Sailing Instructions and please would everyone make their Entry Online in advance right away to help us avoid paperwork on the day and so we know how many bangers and burgers Marianne needs to buy for the BBQ!

Your entry fee of £35 per boat includes 3 BBQ tickets and additional guest tickets should be booked using the online entry form for £7.50 each.

The schedule for the Regatta is as follows:

Saturday 4 June

1400 First start for up to 3 races

Sunday 5 June

The Committee Boat will be Nick Readings’ big black RIB and we will also have Nick’s second RIB plus one of the BSC RIBs with us.  Race Officer will be Piers Lambert with Nick as Assistant Race Officer.  As always the Readings family will be out in force to help us plus we have Graham Chasney, John Paxman, Colin & Pam Willett, Matt and various others very kindly giving up their weekend to help us.

P1050905The race area will be out in the Estuary and Piers/Nick will broadcast their location to you on VHF Channel M1/37.  You must you have your radios with you and well charged for this weekend as you will be required to sign on and report retirements by VHF and the Race Officer has the option to provide you with additional general information by VHF during the day. Failure to sign on by VHF will be penalised by a £10 penalty payable to BODOA funds!

The broad plan, weather permitting, is to do two short windward leeward races followed by a Pyefleet Week course race on Saturday.  On Sunday we will try for the same, but unless we are very lucky with the wind it may be that we only have time to do one windward leeward followed by a Pyefleet Week course. Laminated Course Cards will be available at Registration. Please read the SIs carefully for all the information on how course information will be displayed, etc.
