MERSEA SPRING POINTS RACING 11th MAY 2014

Tomorrow’s Race Officer Brian Bolton has emailed me about tomorrow’s MSP racing.  We have both looked at windguru, XC Weather and the Met Office Shipping and Inshore Waters forecasts, all of which look pretty bad for Sunday morning and early afternoon.  Brian is of the view that we should call off tomorrow now, a view with which I concur.  I have also contacted WMYC Commodore Alan Jones, WMYC Vice Commodore Ed Allan and DSC Cruiser Captain Paul Gosling, who all agree to an early cancellation.
 
Tomorrow was to have been a double race day, and we are now cancelling MSP6 and postponing MSP7. 
 
We will now intend running two races next Sunday, 18th May – MSP8, as scheduled, with a 10.30am start for the Peter Vince Trophy and, as soon as possible after the first race finishes, the re-arranged MSP7 for the Lewis Powell Cup.  The courses chosen for each of these two races will be with the objective of each race lasting approximately 1 1/2 hours.
