I hope I am not too late to catch people before they set out...
Looking at the latest forecasts, the more pessamistic ones appear to be coming true, so it is with heavy heart that I have to cancel the training this weekend. Partly, it is because the sailing looks too dangerous. 0c with -7 windchill and 34 mph gusts sounds like too much of a risk. Also, I don't want people travelling needlessly, both from a road-safety point of view and because of the likelyhood of a wasted journey with no sailing at the end of it.
I woke this morning to the radio saying it would be the coldest March weekend in 50 years. Sadly, that would make it irresponsible to carry on with the event..
A shame that the event was cancelled as it was a really enjoyable event last year and a good chance to blow off the cobwebs that have accumulated over the winter. A perfectly understandable decision though and many thanks for inviting us to join you again this year.
