Unfortunately the CCBM Upper Bay Open for Saturday April 1st is going to be postponed and Rescheduled due to a Gale Warning issued by the National Weather Service today for the Upper Bay starting Friday evening and continuing thru Saturday evening into Sunday..

Winds Saturday on the Upper Bay are forecast to be sustained 25 to 30 MPH with gusts up to 50 mph.
Rain and Thunderstorms are also on the agenda.

Safety of all of our contestants dictates that we cannot send boats out in this type of wind.

We all know the actual Bay winds are generally higher than forecast and no one wants to be on the water in these type conditions.

We will reschedule this Open for later in the year as we will still have our 5 Points Opens needed to determine the Championship.

The next CCBM Open is May 6th.

If you already paid for the April 1st Open, you can leave that payment in, and Register for launch number for the May 6th Open when that Registration Post is put on the board in a week or so.
