***POSTPONEMENT - COWES SONATA OPEN*** 22ND 23RD AUGUST
With extreme conditions caused by Storm Ellen expected at the end of the week preventing teams from Christchurch and Chichester travelling to Cowes for the Sonata Open and with high winds forecasted for Saturday 22nd August the organisers have taken the decision to postpone the Cowes Sonata Open.
Saturday's forecast at best is marginal, and whilst a wind limit was not published in the Notice of Race the race organisers are aware teams have not had much practise racing with spinnakers all year, or, are competing on boats new to them and do not wish to encourage teams to race in unfavourable conditions.
Whilst we are very disappointed, we are equally sure that the risk of incident and the potential need for emergency services exceeds any other considerations in these delicate times.
A new date of the 19th/20th September has been set to run the event when hopefully more favourable conditions will prevail. All current race entries will be carried over to the new date.
