Sprint 15 Oxford Winter Series event this Saturday cancelled

The Sprint 15 Association has been forced to cancel the Oxford round of its popular Winter Series in the light of the forecast 40 plus knot wind speed. The event was due to take place this Saturday 5th December and the decision was made last minute as it had been hoped a weather window would open allowing the event to safely take place.

Sprint 15 sailors are a particularly hardy bunch and the boats are well suited to competing in strong winds as they did at the last round held at Stewartby in November. However, at times, discretion has to be the better part of valour hence the decision made.

The next round of this annual event takes place on the 9th January at Draycote Water and a good attendance is expected as it is at the final event at Grafham Water on the 20th March.
