2000 Open meeting with coaching at SBSC 19 & 20 June 2021
Please come along to our coached Open meeting at SBSC 19 20 June 2021
This is not an event that counts for the 2000 Class 2021 Millennium Series. It's the mid-summer weekend so there will be lots of daylight for travel to Norfolk, some Saturday night socialising, and travel home on Sunday. The club faces west across the Wash so when the sun shines, the sunsets are exceptional!
There should will be some high-quality racing it's 2019 National Champions Jasper and Laura Barnhams home club.
There will be coaches in ribs on the water calling out advice and encouragement, and as usual, the boat park will be the font of all wisdom for setting up, tuning, tactics, boat handling etc. etc.; just ask your 2000 Friends. In the evening well be de-briefing using video.
Sailing at Snettisham Beach revolves around the tide times. High water times are:
6 races planned, 3 each day.
The first race start on Saturday is not before 12.00
The last race start on Sunday is no later than 14.20
Entry and payment
The entry fee is £35.00. Reduced fees for students. Please follow this link for Online Entry and Payment
Please note the Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions attached below.
The bar will be open at the club. We aim to have food available on Friday and Saturday evenings but at the moment we are unable to confirm it at the moment. Food will also be available locally. We will be preferring card payments on the day for food and drink.
The club has a large car park, boat park and beach frontage which should enable competitors and spectators to avoid close contact. Please park where indicated on arrival to maximize the use of the space.
Please contact the club for information on camping at the club. There is enough room for both tents and camper vans. Being mid-summer, it will get light at 4.00 am and dark at 11.00 pm so to ensure a good sleep it's wise to have very good curtains or a sleeping eye mask. There is a lot of birdlife and it can seem very noisy at 5.00 am so earplugs can be useful too.
Subject to covid guidelines members are usually willing to accommodate visitors. Feel free to ask! Otherwise, this is a good place to look
The organisers draw competitors attention to their inability to socially distance in a two-man sailing dinghy. As a result, competitors should endeavour to ensure that each boat is sailed by competitors within a household, group or social bubble as defined by the government guidance at the time of the event. At the time of writing the COVID lockdown relaxation stage is anticipated to be stage 3, applying from 17th May to 21st June. For details of those rules see COVID rules via www.bbc.co.uk/news
Competitors are expected to adhere to any then-current government guidance.
Changing rooms and showers will be open during the event. PLEASE NOTE these are areas of increased risk, and we would encourage participants to avoid or minimise use where possible (for example, by arriving in kit and showering at home) and to minimise the time they spend in the changing area. Participants should socially distance themselves whilst in changing rooms. More than one household can use changing facilities at one time but they must not mix and must adhere to capacity limits.
5th May 2021.
