Happy New Year - I Hope

Everyone knows that sailors should be superstitious, so I blame the Warmer organisers for posting that the Warmer will be going ahead at the end of January.

Just days later, the Government imposed new restrictions in England and Wales announced a new lockdown, sorry I don't know if their influence spreads as far as Scotland. The Warmer may go ahead but participation could be difficult. I have had to pull out of Umpiring at Winter Match Race 1, in early January, as have a number of teams and the events viability will be assessed after the holidays.

The Technical Committee have announced that all BUCS Team Racing Qualifiers are Postponed and the Playoffs Cancelled. They are working hard to come up with a revised format that will provide a quality event with maximum permissible participation.

Let's hope the New Year will bring better news. Meanwhile you all have some Happy Holidays and Stay Safe!
