World Championships Postponed

 

It is with extreme sadness and regret that The Lowestoft & Oulton Broad Motorboat Club together with the full support from the BPBA feel that in the present circumstances there is no option but to postpone the forthcoming GT15 & OSY400 World Championship race event planned for the 18th / 19th July 2020.

     We are unaware of what the future holds and we strongly hope there is an opportunity to reschedule the event for a date later in 2020, this would of course have to be agreed with the UIM. The amount of hard work & dedication the organising committee have managed is absolutely amazing & the club is so proud of what’s been achieved.

     If there is no opportunity in 2020 to hold this event then we will look to the future because we know the L&OBMBC can put on a fantastic race event.

     We wish all of our club members, supporters & power boating friends around the world good health at this very difficult time.

Events Cancelled

 

Members & supporters of the L&OBMBC.

We have taken the governments advice and in the best interests of our members health decided to cancel the following scheduled events:

     •  Shore Staff Dinner
     •  April Management Meeting
     •  Pre-season MOT scrutineering
     •  Rescue crew first aid training
     •  Wet driver rescue training
     •  April GT/OSY International Committee Meeting

The clubhouse will also remain closed on Thursday evenings for the foreseeable future.

A full update will be sent to our members/competitors in the next day or two advising on the race season & our International event in July.

     It goes without saying but we hope you all stay safe in these challenging times.
