Notice to all Moreton Bay Classic Entries
By tscq, Mar 6 2020 01:43AM
Hi all MBC entrants
The TSCQ Sailing Committee has considered the current weather forecast for the weekend. The BoM has issued a strong wind warning for Moreton Bay for Saturday and the current BoM forecast for early on Sunday includes south-easterly winds up to 30 knots.
While some weather forecast models indicate the winds may be less strong on the western side of the bay, the BoM wind warning coupled with the chance of a thunderstorm on Saturday morning and increasing seas on both days makes the forecast conditions too dangerous, at least for our smaller trailer sailers and our less experienced crews. The MBC is therefore postponed.
Unfortunately the MBBC at Scarborough have major functions/weddings for the next 3 Saturdays which they have asked us to avoid. A new date for the postponed Moreton Bay Classic will be advised as soon as we find a weekend suitable to both MBBC and TSCQ.
