Dragon Boat Info #3

Hi Guys
Too rough for boats but possibly still okay for drinking????
We'll sort it all out on Monday night

Dear Rotarians and Dragon Boat Teams
I regret to advise that the Dragon Boat Regatta scheduled for tomorrow has been postponed because of unfavourable weather conditions.
The strong easterly winds now blowing are predicted to continue and probably worsen over the weekend. The decision to postpone was taken after checking conditions at Town Beach this morning and consulting with the Weather Bureau, Sea Rescue and the Broome Hovercraft Base.
Based on tidal conditions, the next favourable opportunity to conduct the regatta is the weekend of 1st and 2nd September. This brings the regatta into potential conflict with Shinju Matsuri activities, so we will discuss this with Shinju organisers over the weekend and confirm a new date for the event as soon as possible.
Teams unable to compete in the event because of the changed date will be offered a refund of their entry fees. We apologise for the inconvenience but unfortunately, when the Weather Gods frown, our hands are tied.
