Cove Sailing Club took the decision earlier this week to cancel the Brooklands Cup. It emerged during the week that insufficient volunteers were available to operate safety boats for this event. In organising and running any event, safety is our first priority. While the committee appreciates that entrants may have arranged their own support boats for the event, the minimum level of safety cover would still have had to be provided by Cove Sailing Club. We have endeavored over the past 48 hours to try and rectify the situation but we have been unable to resolve it. Taking into account other scheduled events, tides, conditions and availability of volunteers, the committee will review the possibility of rescheduling this event. Our next open event for dinghies, East Ferry Cup, is scheduled for Saturday 8th July and a notice of race for this event will be posted in due course.
