Optimist Spring Championship Cancelled
Published 22:42 on 12 Mar 2020
Following detailed consultation between the International Optimist Class Association and BSC, and in light of the worsening Coronavirus crisis, the decision has been made to cancel the Volvo Gill International Optimist Spring Championship, which was due to have been hosted by the club over the weekend of 14 and 15 March 2020. The decision was made reluctantly by all parties, but ultimately it was felt that the health of the competitors and volunteers, their families and friends and the wider community must be the priority at this most difficult of times.
We would like to thank all of our members who volunteered to support the event and the class has asked us to also pass on their thanks to the BSC Team for all the work that went into planning the event and for the support of the members. Thanks must also go to the Optimist Class for being such a pleasure to work with in the planning of the event and for their carefully considered and well managed handling of a most difficult situation. We very much hope that it will be possible for us to welcome the class to BSC for another major event at some point in the not too distant future.
