OK folks time for a heads up.  Next week  on Sunday 25th is the Tri-icycle Race, run by Snowflake Sailing Club.

If wind and conditions are right,  the start will be at Horning Sailing club,  some time between 10:00 and 10:30, the race goes to a bouy placed outside or near Oby dyke,  and another outside the entrance to Womack,  then returns to the club.

If the wind is light the start could be anywhere down to St Benets straight.  Alternatively either or both of the buoys could be moved closer to the start,  it all depends on the wind and  tide combination on the day.

The normal Entry is around 30 boats,  could be as high as 45, but in these covid days who knows!!

The usual requests apply,  

If you find some tacking across the river towards you, please keep slow,  and  tight right to the bank , less than 6ft if possible, then they won't sail between you and the bank. Let them do the manoeuvring past you.

If you come across a long line of boats coming towards you on your side of the river and they are not tacking,  please then move across the river to let them through,  they maybe struggling against the tide,  and moving out might send them backwards.

If you come up Behind a tacking boat, stick to the right hand bank,  as they tack away from the right hand bank go forward as the gap appears.

Coming up Behind a single boat running away from you, please do move out and gently pass.

Coming up behind  a wall of boats running away from you.. Err sorry, you're stuck until a gap appears and you can gently go through

Coming into a wall of boats running towards you, keep as close as you can to the bank,   slow right down , if possible stop,  let them sort themselves out and go past you.

Please keep it slow especially in light winds,  causing them to rock and roll, just slows them down, getting in everyone's way.

We apologise for any inconvenience to you,  the best guaranteed  viewing point if you are interested,  is the St Benets  straight.
