💥 Important Announcement💥Harbour Dash Postponed!

We understand that this news may be disappointing, but we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone the harbour dash until the 21st/22nd of September. Unfortunately, the wind gods were not playing ball.

Commenting on the decision Tris Best, OTC says;

“The Northerly forecast would have made it very hard to provide effective safety cover and made it a lot less fun for competitors.

“We hope that all of those who were planning to come along this weekend will be able to compete in September so we can make this historic event a huge success and raise funds for the Will Houghton Foundation.”

If you have already been in contact to enter the Dash you will not have to re-enter for September.
