If anyone else is free to help Karen and Amanda with registration before the race (you should still be able to race yourself!) please let her know.
If anyone is willing to do the race timing please let me know. It's quite straightforward and I'll show you how to do it and provide the laptop on the night. Darren Stanley kindly volunteered to do it for the last 2 races but he's away this time and also we can't expect he same person to do it every race so the more people who know how to do it the better.
Gale force winds and heavy rain is forecast for tomorrow night. Bray sailing club have told us they cannot launch given the current forecast and I cannot expect our kayakers and the coastguard to do the same, let alone stand over the safety of our competitors. So unfortunately tomorrow's race is cancelled.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered during the year. Your help was thoroughly appreciated. I'm really sorry that those of you hoping to race this week won't get that opportunity but safety has to come first. Unfortunately given the dying light and tides, rescheduling isn't really feasible at this point.
Thanks again and hope to see you out en force next year!
