DUE TO THE UNPRECEDENTED COVID-19 CRISES THE SOLET SHAKEDOWN EVENT IS CANCELLED. IT IS HIGHLY UNLIKELY TO BE CERTAIN WE WILL BE OUT OF LOCK DOWN AND THAT BOATYARDS WILL BE SUFFICIENTLY OPERATIONAL. MANY OF US WILL HAVE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO BE WORRYING ABOUT IN MID-APRIL.
ANY ENTRY FEES PAID WILL BE REFUNDED IN DUE COURSE.
SORC IS MONITORING THE CORONA VIRUS SITUATION AND FURTHER UPDATES WILL APPEAR AS APPROPRIATE. WHEN RESTRICTIONS ARE LIFTED, WE MAY WELL ISSUE AN AMENDMENT TO THE SEASONS NOTICE OF RACE WITH REVISIONS TO THE PROGRAM, DISCARDS AND SO ON.
STAY SAFE EVERYONE AND STAY AT HOME!
EASTERN SOLENT - Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th April
Now it is time to put your Winter Training to the test with the SORC season opener - the Solent Shakedown. Ah, ok, what Winter Training? Well, no excuses, because we have also arranged a North U Training Day on the Friday to help get you up to speed .....
North U Training
Where: Saturdays race will start off the beach at Gilkicker at 1000 hrs, and will finish in the Eastern Solent with the fleet berthing over night in Haslar Marina, Gosport. Sundays race will again start off Gilkicker and finish back in the Central Solent. Race lengths of 4 to 6 hours will be planned, with enough wiggles to shake off those Winter Blues.
Friday night social: For those arriving in Haslar on the Friday there will be a North U Training Day de-brief in the Lightship Lower Deck bar later in the afternoon. We will follow this with a "freestyle" evening!
Saturday night social: Dinner and Saturday's prize giving is booked at Trinity's in Haslar 1900 for 1930. It's a fixed menu so we will need numbers initially and menu choices in due course. Skippers pay their own way.
Berthing: We will arrange berthing for both Friday and Saturday evening (skippers pay at the Marina Office quoting SORC Rally). We need to know who wants a berth?
Please email Simon Mitchell to confirm your berth requirements and numbers for dinner.
