The BBSA Board of Directors, in an abundance of caution, has moved our 2020 season start date to Wednesday, April 15, 2020. As an aside, Willoughby will be starting their racing season April 16, 2020.
We will still have 5 series consisting of 5 races each, we just pushed the dates to the right. Please find below the new schedule. If you already signed up for a date to be Race Committee (except for the first two canceled dates), your dates did not change. Chris and I who signed up for the first two Race Committee Positions (Kaleidoscope, Wharf Rat) will need to pick another time. The website, Notice of Race, and the Sailing Instructions are being updated to reflect the changes.
As we all know, these are fluid times, and developing situations on the ground may require another reschedule. About all I can say is “keep on keeping on”, or as we said in the Navy, “Standby to Standby”. I appreciate everyone’s understanding during these trying times.
Point of order, there are no officially sanctioned events under the BBSA/LCSA umbrella prior to 15 April 2020. That being said and understood, individual boats can sail wherever and whenever they like.
