Monkton Bluefriars Small Boats Head Race


Entries open 2nd September
Entries closed at 1000 on 4th October

We very much regret that, because of the high southerly winds forecast for Saturday, the short course divisions B and D are cancelled.
Divisons A, C, E will go ahead.

Helpers who are setting up for the day are asked to be on site at times already arranged. Gazebos and so on will have to be put in place on Saturday morning rather than on Friday, so to give more time for essential preparations, Division A will start one hour LATER than advertised. corresponding duty rotas will also be delayed. Thereafter, the programme will be compressed if possible, with waiting times minimised.

"Saturday: Windy, with showers. High 21ÂșC. Winds S at 30 to 50 km/h. Chance of rain 40%. Winds could occasionally gust over 65 km/h."
