Due to the latest COVID situation, the Burghfield Brass Monkey in Berkshire has been postponed to 20th February 2021. Meanwhile a new event is coming in for the Seldén SailJuice Winter Series, due to take place at Alton Water in Suffolk on the weekend of 27 & 28 March 2021. While this is getting late in the winter for another event, the organisers have taken the view of keeping as much sailing as possible in this season's Series.

With his Restart Sailing initiative, co-organiser Simon Lovesey has stayed abreast of latest developments in the sport since March earlier this year. "We have taken the best practice that we've heard about and wherever possible have applied it to the events in the Seldén SailJuice Winter Series.

"We have had high numbers of registrations for all the events, which shows that there is still an appetite for racing even if it means changing by the car, bringing your own food and drink, and having virtual briefings and prize-givings. We're delighted to have Alton Water on board as an example of another venue that's looking to make things happen whenever Covid regulations allow."

The Seldén SailJuice Winter Series is always dedicated to making something happen on the weekend when sailing was due to take place, so we'll be doing a Facebook Live session on the Seldén SailJuice Winter Series Facebook Page at 5pm on the 27 December.
