All clubs attending are advised to make their own risk assessment around attending, trailer loading, boat rigging and boat sharing. As there is no access to changing rooms or showers for competition, it is advised that competitors arrive dressed ready to race with adequate spare kit in the event of inclement weather.
Adults involved as competitors, volunteers, coaches, parents/guardians are encouraged to take LFD tests in the week leading up to the competition. Children over 11 years of age can take the tests as well.
The Regatta has obtained PPE and cleaning materials to keep both volunteers and competitors Covid safe. We would like to thank local retailers who have kindly donated personal protective equipment and sanitizer, reusable face masks, hand sanitizer in 500ml pumps, bacterial wipes, surface wipes and PPE.
