DINGHY WEEK-LITE 2021 – 24TH TO 30TH JULY 2021
The Abersoch Dinghy Week team and South Caernarvonshire Yacht Club are determined to put something on in 2021 – our wonderful Dinghy Week guests and great friends were missed hugely this year.
The vaccination programme gives us all immense relief at the prospect of a return to normality next year. However, it seems clear that the easing of restrictions will be a process taking place over the summer months and, until then, measures designed to keep us safe will continue.
If we are still subject to restrictions in July we will be unable to entertain visitors in the clubhouse but what we can offer is the exhilaration of racing in the unique and fabulous waters of Cardigan Bay. We are aiming, therefore, to lay on a week of beach-based dinghy racing over the week from Saturday 24th to Friday 30th July 2021. Continuing Welsh restrictions will probably mean that we will have to restrict entry numbers so, whilst this won’t be the traditional full-fat Dinghy Week experience, it will be the next best thing.
Exactly how things will pan out next year is not yet clear so we intend to open the event to entries in March by when we hope the picture will be a bit clearer. Those of you who rolled 2020 entry fees over to 2021 will obviously have a guaranteed entry.
After that, the next big event for the diary will be a return to the full-fat Dinghy Week experience to celebrate the 50th Dinghy Week in 2022. (Saturday 23rd to Friday 29th July 2022) It will be a turbo-charged week of dinghy racing and celebration, with happy hours, band nights and a 50th Birthday Party to round things off – definitely not to be missed!
