Layup/Nab Tower Race

Event Date: 21 Oct 2017 - 1 days
Venue: Cowes to Nab Tower & backLocation: Solent United Kingdom



It is with great reluctance that we have decided to ABANDON this Saturday’s race. The chances of staging a playable race in safety on Saturday look very remote indeed given the current storm force forecasts with gusts upwards of 50 knots, and many of you have expressed doubts about getting over to Cowes, so it seems to be the most sensible decision to abandon.

To re-schedule the race at a later date will be complicated at this time of year, so the seasons standings will be calculated on the races staged.

Unfortunately we are also cancelling the official Prize-Giving ceremony on Saturday night as many of you will not be able to get there without a boat!! The prize-giving will be re-scheduled for a later date and you will be notified.

However, Friday and Sunday look like they could be sailable, so a number of us are going to Cowes anyway on Friday. If you can then please do come to Cowes and we will have a casual social. Let me know if you think you will come over?

SORC will refund dinner payments and work out a credit of race fees against next seasons races in due course.
