After consultation and discussion with the Two Islands RYC they feel that their venue cannot currently host IOM Ranking 5&6. This is predominantly due to a public right of way that runs through what would have to be the control area. Although they have the cooperation of the fishing group and the parks trust they are not able to ensure the safety of the public and competitors in line with social distancing measures.
Due to this they have had to inform the skippers that they cannot host the event.
The class and MYA support them in this decision and thank them for their honest appraisal.
To avoid having to cancel the event at this time the MYA have secured the support of Manor Park RSC who are able to host the event. The class are hopeful that by the time of this event (Late October) that they will be able to return to competitive racing. A further announcement will be made closer to the time with NoR, details etc.
So, to clarify, IOM ranking 5&6 has NOT been cancelled, but it will not be at Two Islands RYC.
