Mersea Week Committee Statement 13/04/2020

The following statement has been issued by the Mersea Week Committee in light of current circumstances:

 

Mersea Week 2020: Current Plans
The Mersea Week committee, on behalf of the West Mersea Yacht Club and Dabchicks Sailing Club, confirms that plans are still in place to run Mersea Week 2020 during August (16th-21st August 2020). The committee continues to work tirelessly towards running another successful regatta and social week which for many is considered the highlight of the year. In light of the current global Covid-19 pandemic and national restrictions imposed by the UK government, entries for this year’s event have not yet opened and the organising committee will continue to monitor the situation and to update competitors in the coming weeks and months.

With four months before the start of the event, we hope that many of you will be able to make plans to get yourselves and your craft afloat. We are proud to be part of such an iconic and successful regatta and hope to be able to celebrate with you all during the week. We hope that the social events of the week will provide the perfect opportunity to refuel and look forward to the future after a challenging year so far.
