We had some champagne sailing at the Penarth Yacht Club Regatta last weekend with a healthly fleet meeting off Penarth for both the PYC Regatta, and the first weekend of the Shanghai Cup.

The Sailing Instructions for the regatta should be released by the end of the week and available on the same page.
As a reminder, the first weekend of the Shanghai Cup is the Penarth Yacht Club Regatta, which you have to enter separately to the CBYC Regatta. You can enter, as well as view the NoR, SI’s etc, on their website – www.penarthyachtclub.com
- Shanghai Cup as part of the CBYC & PYC Regattas
After a very difficult and challenging 2020, the good news is it looks like we will be able to run a CBYC Cruiser Racing Regatta.
The event will not run on the usual scale with the social side of the event being particularly affected.
However, the plan is, along with many other clubs in the UK and Wales to get out on the water and do some socially distanced racing.
The event, and how it will be organised and run will be governed by WELSH GOVERNMENT covid-19 regulations, and following RYA Cymru guidelines at all times.
Skippers will be responsible for ensuring that all relevant regulations and guidelines are followed aboard their vessels by their crew.
The NoR and Sailing Instructions will be published shortly for the CBYC Regatta. For the Penarth Regatta, please visit www.penarthyachtclub.com
Of particular note to interested racing teams will be regatta crewing numbers. The final crewing numbers will be published in the NoR. However, it is suggested that Covid-19 crew numbers will be half the IRC rating crew number (rounded down) and add 1. We all recognise that this is extremely late in the day to be organising a Regatta and that people may already have made commitments. We hope, that were possible the event will be well supported, and that all entrants will be considerate to the organising committee during these challenging times.
More information to follow and hopefully see you on the water soon.
- Postponement due to COVID–19
Following the outbreak of COVID–19 in the UK, the Organising Committee have taken the decision to postpone the 2020 Shanghai & Nimrod Cup. The proposed new dates for the event will be Portishead weekend on 12/13 September, and Cardiff weekend on 26/27 September.
The NoR will be updated shortly to reflect this change.
Any competitors who have already paid and are unable to make the new date will of course be able to claim a full refund on their entry fee.
If there are any queries, these can be directed to the club or discussed on our Facebook Group
On a positive side stay safe everyone, and lets us use the extra time to try to promote the event further.
