Ponteland Junior Head - Sat 23 March 2024
Competition cancelled due to high winds forecast

The poster as a jpg is below - click on the small images for larger versions on your screen. Entries opened on Saturday 2 March and closed on Saturday 16 March. The start order was published before the cancellation on 21 March, but not needed, sadly.  

The organising committee met the Thursday before the event and discussed the high winds forecast. The decision was made, very reluctantly, to cancel the competition. Clubs will be contacted very shortly about refunds, which will be implemented through BROE.

The conditions on the day proved to be very clearly unrowable (see photo below), so in retrospect it was the right decision!

No boats to be seen on race day - the forecast of high winds was right!
