Round The Yellow Buoys Race - 3rd October
It has been decided that the Harvest Race scheduled for a 1200 Hrs start Saturday the 3rd of October will now be known as the "Round the Yellow Buoys Race" in support of the Go Yellow day being organised as a fund raising event for the Mountbatten Hospice.
The race will involve sailing round as many of the yellow buoys outside Bembridge Harbour as possible depending on the weather conditions. The Race will be split into two groups, one for adults and the second for junior helms not more than 17 years old on the day. There will be an exciting array of prizes for each group. For example the winner of the adult group will be treated to a meal for two with a bottle of wine at the Club, second place a bottle of Mermaid Gin and third a golfing umbrella and a ball point pen. The prizes for the Juniors will be six months free hire of a Club Kayak, a free entry in the Club Hundred Draw and a free Club training course. There will also be a prize for the best yellow attire worn by a crew member
The entry fees for this event are £10 for adults and £5 for juniors. The funds collected will be donated to the Hospice so we look forward to seeing a good sized fleet on the day!
IOW Games - Cancelled
Statement from IWIGA Chairman, Kev Winchcombe
Although I and the whole of Team IOW are understandably disappointed with the news of the Guernsey 2021 Games being cancelled, I, along with the Trustees of the Island Games Association fully support this decision.
The uncertainty regarding Covid-19 makes planning and organising the Games incredibly challenging, and also limits competitors ability to train. This combination makes it impossible to progress at this time.
I would like to thank our sponsors, team managers, and competitors for their support, and hope they will be able to be a part of Team IOW at the next Games.
The Autumn series started last Saturday and we are now looking for RIBS to cover the next few races please could you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you can volunteer.
