Weymouth Beach Race Postponed 22-23 FEBRUARY 2014
NOVEMBER the 15th and 16th this Year!
Following consultation with Weymouth & Portland Borough Council we regrettably have no option, due to continued Severe Weather Warnings for next week - but to postpone the Weymouth Beach X.
The main concern is for the safety of both competitors, trade exhibitors & spectators, with potential wind damage to the temporary structures required for the event including trade stands, security fencing and signage to name a few.
As Event Organisers we are in the 'Spotlight' for this type of Event & have duty of care to the public and want them to enjoy the fantastic spectacle of our Sport – but more importantly be safe!
The storms that Weymouth has already endured has caused significant damage to the beach and moved high volumes of sand to one end of the beach, this would also cause severe restrictions with the course build.
We have been able to confirm with the Council a
NEW DATE which will now be on NOVEMBER the 15th and 16th this Year!
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused & on a positive note we are looking forward to November with Current Rider Entries already Topping 2013.
Weather Warning – for week commencing 17th February 2014
Further Atlantic storms are predicted to hit the South-West coast of Britain, causing fresh and creating yet more flooding.
Winds of more than 90mph, heavy rain and high tides prompted the Environment Agency to issue nine severe flood warnings
– meaning danger to life – all in south-west England, from Weymouth in Dorset to Land's End in Cornwall.
It urged the public to "stay away from sea fronts and beaches as conditions represent a significant risk to life".
The Met Office has issued "be prepared" amber warnings for strong winds sweeping across southern England and Wales.
A press release is being launched today from Weymouth & Portland Borough Council.....................
Entries can be refunded or if you wish us to carry over your entry to the new date in November please advise us by email stating in the subject Refund or Carry Over.
