IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Having reviewed the lockdown roadmap published this week by HM Government, the Royal Norfolk & Suffolk Yacht Club , in conjunction with ITCA (GBR), have decided to cancel the GJW Direct National Coastal Championships (NS4). They have taken this difficult decision, in part, due to the restrictions on accommodation that will be in place making it difficult for people to attend. We want our events to be as inclusive as possible, which we simply don’t feel would be possible at this stage of the lockdown easing.
Those of you who have already entered shall be refunded shortly.
ITCA (GBR) are actively in conversation with venues regarding the possibility of arranging an additional national event. We will publish more information as soon as possible. In the meantime, stay safe.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Following the Prime Minister's announcement, and the lockdown roadmap that was subsequently published, it is clear that restrictions which currently prevent racing events will not be eased until after 29 March. Therefore, unfortunately, we have no choice but to cancel the GJW Direct National Inland Championships (NS3) that had been scheduled to take place at Datchet Water Sailing Club on 27-28 March 2021.
Those of you who have already entered shall be refunded shortly.
The committee are investigating options, including talking to area reps, to enable a safe return to racing as soon as possible. In the meantime, stay safe.
