*CANCELLED* POSH Regatta - Paignton, Devon, UK
Paignton Open for Single Handed Dinghies (POSH) Regatta & VE Pursuit,Paignton Sailing Club, Torbay, Devon
The popular single hander event in the South West with entries split over several fleets.
Following the public address by the UK Prime Minister on Monday 23rd March 2020 and the subsequent updated guidance from HM Government, Public Health England and the Royal Yachting Association regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, Paignton Sailing Club (PSC) regretfully announce the abandonment of #POSH2020 with immediate effect. This is of course very disappointing but clearly the only decision we could make at this stage. All those who have already entered will be contacted shortly by SailRacer with arrangements for refunds. PSC will be covering the admin fees involved so entrants will receive their whole entry fee back. This process may take sometime due to the current situation so please bear with us. Once the current crisis has passed, we will be working hard on next year’s event in order to make it the biggest and best POSH yet.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the volunteers, staff, sponsors and other stakeholders for their hard work in planning this event – a lot of work goes into a regatta like this behind the scenes.
Thanks again for your support and please stay safe.
James Ripley, Event Director (25th March)
