Shotwick Lake Lightning and Streaker Open CANCELLED

by Dave Turtle 26 Apr 2019 15:02 BST 27 April 2019

Sadly, we have decided to cancel the Lightning & Streaker Open at Shotwick Lake Sailing on Saturday, 27th April due to the adverse weather forecast.

Cold, wet and windy with gusts in excess of 45 mph. It wouldn't be much fun for the competitors, race officials or safety boat crew! I blame Storm Hannah.

Many apologies for anybody planning to attend and we'll try to re-arrange for later in the season.
