Keelboat Racing re-starts with full Crews and minor restrictions
Social Distancing rules have changed to 1 metre plus mitigation and we are now able to sail with a maximum crew of 6 from any household. However, the Personal Location Form is still required to enter the races each week. With a view to offering some preparation for Mersea Week, there are 2 new racing series planned which included the return of IRC and White Sail racing on Sunday mornings and another Friday evening series. The details of revised programme and the supporting Sailing Instructions are on the Website but, in brief, the programme is as follows:
RNLI Pennant Pursuit Race 4th July Start 12.00
2nd Covid series of 5 races starting on 5 July – IRC and White Sail – 10:30 and 10:40 starts
2nd Friday evening Series of 5 races starting on 10 July LH – 19:00 and 19:10 starts
Wallet Cup race on the 9 Aug.

There is still some great sailing to be had this Summer and we look forward to seeing you all on the water.
