It is with great sadness the Bassenthwaite Sailing Club Council have made the very difficult decision to cancel Bass Week 2020. Whilst this is incredibly disappointing for the club, its members and our many loyal visitors, we feel that this is the only action available to us and is the responsible thing to do in the current circumstances.
What a superb week it has been for the Mirrors! Eighteen entries at the start of The One Bassenthwaite Lake Sailing Week on the 3rd August, and six further crews joining mid-week. Although the Mirrors, Toppers and Teras were in a single fleet, the top five finishers – and usually the top ten - were Mirrors in all races to date. I write this prior to the final weekend series.
As well as boats from the Home Club we had entrants from six Clubs across the North of England and as far south as Tewkesbury and Rugby.
For those looking for some practice prior to the Nationals at ISC, please join us and visit beautiful Hill Head for some great short chop wavey sailing on The Solent (PO14 3JT). Join our local fleet, watch the racing from the veranda, wifi available, all abilities welcome, first race 13:30, 3 races. NOR and SI available at http://www.hillheadsc.org.uk/event/mirror-open-3/
