After exploring all avenues, the bureaucratic response is not obliging the need for our members to prepare their birds, therefore it is with great regret that the Chairman of the NFC Mr Paul Naum, has been compelled to cancel the Grand National from San Sebastian. The Grand National race will now be held from Guernsey on 31st July, which is far from ideal, but it is better than nothing. This reluctant decision has been taken in order to add some degree of clarity, but in this ever-changing environment, any positive progression will be left open for review.
