It is with deep regret that the committee of Harwich & Dovercourt MYC have had to cancel the Corden Cup and Round 4 of the Eastern District Championship Series for IOM Boats scheduled for Sunday 15th July 2012.
This decision was not taken lightly and follows a day of continuous rain with two inspections of the lake and surrounding area, the latest being at 6.00 pm on Saturday 14th July 2012. The lake is overflowing and as such the edges are underwater and the surrounding grass area is water logged and therefore it was deemed unsafe for competitors to participate in the event. The decision was taken at this time to ensure that all competitors could be advised in a timely manner to prevent skippers travelling significant distances unnecessarily.
The Harwich & Dovercourt MYC committee will work with the District Committee to establish if a new date for this event can be identified, which will then be posted via the web site etc.
The District Rule covering this states’
Where it becomes impossible to hold an event on the published date and/or at the published venue then either or both may be changed by arrangement with the District Secretary provided that:-
- The new date ( together with a new venue if necessary ) is no sooner than 4 weeks after the published date.
- A new venue on the same date is within a reasonable distance of the published venue.
In either case all competitors are informed.
