Cockle Spit Cricket Match

 I am canceling the Cockle Spit cricket match for this year due in large part to the wind forecast which has been borderline for the last three days showing about 15 knots during the time we would be playing cricket and increasing as we make our way back, the experienced sailors wouldn’t mind these conditions but there will be people that may not have any sailing experience and I am not going to chance spoiling what should be an enjoyable day.  The actual wind speed has been consistently above the forecast 

 This will also alleviate any health issues that people may have in light of the coronavirus about being in close contact with other people on small boats
