The ONE Bassenthwaite Lake Sailing Week sponsored by The Lakes Distillery
Many thanks for your patience and understanding over recent months with regard to the planning and decisions around hosting Bass Week 2021. As you will all appreciate it has and remains a very difficult and testing time for anyone trying to organise any events.
We are delighted to inform you that we will be hosting Bass Week 2021 this year and we look forward to welcoming you to Bassenthwaite Sailing Club.
However, as many of you would expect the week will have some differences to “normal times” in an effort to keep us all safe and healthy.
We will be providing all entrants with a welcome pack via email before the event which will contain full information about the event, but just to highlight a few of the changes to expect this year…
- We will be hosting all entertainment outside in an open marquee. The finish times will therefore be earlier than usual and we have amended the previously advertised social programme. The new social programme will be distributed within the welcome pack.
- The bar will be open and access into the clubhouse, bar, family room and toilets will be available to all to use. However, we expect everyone to wear face coverings whilst indoors, except whilst seated.
- Changing rooms and showers will be available for use by those staying on site only. We expect those staying offsite to arrive changed and ready to sail. Showering and changing after sailing to be done within your offsite accommodation. Face coverings are expected to be worn within the changing rooms.
- We expect all those who enter the club site to perform regular lateral flow testing prior to and throughout the event.
We hope that everyone will appreciate and respect the changes we have made, which are in the best interests of all those attending.
Entries have now closed and the event is at full capacity for those who wish to stay on site. Further sailing only entries maybe accepted at the discretion of the organisers.
Despite the above we do hope that Bass Week 2021 will be a thoroughly enjoyable and successful event. We are very much looking forward to welcoming old friends back to Bass and greeting new ones within the usual Bass SC friendly atmosphere.
If you have any questions around the week, please contact The Bass Week Team via [email protected]
Planning for Bass Week 2021 has been underway for some months now and we are all ready and good to go. However, as you will all appreciate the viability and scope of Bass Week 2021 depends upon the ‘Covid roadmap out of lockdown’ and any restrictions that maybe in place.
We had hoped to be able to open entries in the coming weeks, but given the recent changes and the possibility that Step 4 of the roadmap maybe delayed beyond June 21st as originally indicated, we have made the decision to delay opening entry until the picture becomes clearer.
Please rest assured that if it is feasible and appropriate for Bassenthwaite SC to host Bass Week 2021, then we will do so.
We thank you all for your patience in, what we hope you will understand, is a very changeable and challenging situation.
