Flying Fifteen Open Part of the Northern Traveller Series Featured

Written by FF Fleet Captain

Hi Everyone, it is good news time, the BSC Flying Fifteen open is on the horizon, just 5 weeks away and time is counting down nicely. Date is the 22nd and 23rd May, and for sure the sun will be out and the wind fine and constant. :-)       First off we always run a great event on our waters, we have the space, the equipment and the skill to arrange for some fine racing, this is why we get many associations booking us as their pre-eminent inland venue.  If you are a tad worried about Covid, just remember that we are a well organised and acclaimed covid safe venue, we ran four successful events throughout September last year under severe restrictions and we have every confidence we can do it again this year.  So you can rest assured that you only need to be concerned about where to set your boat on the start line, the rest will be well taken care of.  Of note is that Burton is actually the first event in the FF Calendar this year, so it will be a good chance for you to dust off your boats and come here for a refresher on the joys of the circuit.  Please see NOR on our website and look for local instructions on the day.  We have endeavoured to organised a favourable time on the two days to enable easy travelling and a relaxed pace, outside of the racing.
