Earlier this week, Dabchicks SC took the decision to cancel this year’s National Championships due to be held next month. Roger Sydenham, chair of the DSC organising committee, Rachel Ramsey, DSC club manager, and their team had worked hard to try and keep the event alive but reluctantly concluded that while they could provide racing on the water the challenges of providing onshore facilities, never mind a social programme which is so important to our fleet, were insurmountable under the current guidelines without putting at risk both the competitors and local helpers. This decision is supported by the UKWA committee.
Entry fees will be refunded in full to competitors by the Treasurer of DSC.
The open meeting at Hickling Broad SC on 10th October has also been cancelled, again because of the impact of Covid 19.
