CSC Members Regatta Day

Dear All

Unfortunately Storm Ellen put play to last week’s ‘Members Regatta Day’ and hopefully Francis has also now passed so we are all set for some fun racing  tomorrow, followed by a bit of socially distanced craic.

The proposed format for the day is:

10.30 Junior Fun Race

13.00 Keelboat  Race

13.05 Dinghy Race

If you intend to participate and have not yet registered, please do so via the website, where you will also find the Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions.

Outdoor bar facilities will be available from 13:00 – 21:00, with outdoor live music from 17:00 – 19:00

No food is available so feel free to bring snacks or a picnic.

Now for the safety stuff…

Coronavirus has not gone away and there have been reports of several local cases recently with businesses having been forced to close temporarily. 

Social distancing is an essential part of slowing the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19) and saving lives. We all need to play our part and keep our distance (2 metres where possible).

Please do not come to the club if you or anyone you have been in contact with are showing signs of COVID-19. The main symptoms are a high temperature, a new, continuous cough and a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

Anyone who has already visited the club will know we are taking a list of names for contact tracking and tracing purposes. We also encourage you to download the free Stop COVID NI App.

A Risk Assessment has been carried out for the event and can be found on the website. 

Members Regatta Postponed

Based on the weather forecast for Saturday we have taken the decision to postpone the members regatta until next Saturday 29th August.

Hopefully conditions will be more favourable and allow everyone to enjoy the day.

All entries and dinghies already booked will apply for next week. If you are unable to attend next week and have booked a boat, please either cancel via Eventbrite or contact Rick McCaig.

Summer Series Racing 12th August to 3rd September – Bar Opening

Hello everyone 

We are delighted that we were able to commence a short summer series of racing this evening with a good turnout of dinghies enjoying a great race in near perfect conditions. The keelboats start their series on Thursday evening, 13th August. 

To welcome back our sailors and to celebrate the start of our long awaited summer racing, we are going to open the bar on Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 7pm until 10pm, until the series finishes on Thursday 3rd September. With the current restrictions this still has to be outdoors so unfortunately will be weather dependant. 

The forecast (so far) for Thursday is good so hopefully you will come down to enjoy the racing, with a few drinks from the bar.
