2021 Topper SE Regional, B14 Open and Forts Race Weekend cancelled

Following a review of the current and expected changes in Covid-19 restrictions, and our ability to put on quality and safe events to the standard we pride ourselves on whilst meeting those restrictions, the decision has been made to cancel the Topper SE Regional Squad training and Open on 10th and 11th May, the B14 Open on 8th and 9th May, and the Forts Race Weekend on 29th and 20th May. Whilst restrictions are planned to gradually lift over April and May, even if the current timeline is met we would still not be able to host full social programmes for these events and travel and accommodation would have been severely restricted for at least the Topper and B14 events. There’s also a significant amount of volunteer time and effort leading up to and during the Forts Race Weekend in particular, which would be much harder to achieve safely under the current and expected restrictions. Instead, we want to focus the club’s efforts on sailing and social activities for our members in April and May, and more details on the club events that will replace the Forts Race Weekend programme will be announced shortly.
We look forward to being able to run these events again in 2022, and look forward to welcoming our friends from the Topper, B14 and long distance sailing fleets back to the club again soon.
