A further Message from Steve Bullmore Class President regarding Corona Virus

World Championship 2020 Cancellation  16/5/2020

 
Hi All
We have been in contact with the organisers in Florida about the forthcoming International 2.4mR World Championships and the Para World Championships which were due to be held later this year. The decision has been made that there are many factors in the Covid 19 times we live in that to hold the championships would not be practical.
Their decision to cancel is well in advance of the date which will hopefully mean that there will not be any negative aspects other than disappointment to those intending to have entered.
Obviously we are disappointed not to take our Class to the USA and the EC are making efforts towards another date with the organisers.
Our acceptance of the Worlds in Tonsberg, Norway in 2021 remains in place and one that we can look forward to bringing 2.4 sailing back onto the World stage.
Please advise your members of the cancellation and the EC will advise you of any further decisions soonest.
Our 2020 AGM can no longer be held and the EC is exploring the possibility of holding this as an electronic meeting, again advice on that will be posted soonest.
Best wishes and remain safe
Steve
President International 2.4mR Class Association 

 

Notice to all sailors concerning the corona virus pandemic. 14/03/2020
 
Hi All We are in the early grips of the corona virus pandemic. Different countries are experiencing a range of infection levels and in each case are taking different methods to hold back the virus for as long as possible. As a Class we must be very aware of the implications that this may well have on our sailing activities and in particular the major regattas that are planned for this year.
 
No one wants to cancel any regatta or championship but these are unprecedented circumstances and we have to plan and be aware of what has to be done. We have seen the first two regattas cancelled in Europe and I have no doubt more will follow, however decisions can only be made as the severity levels transpire and the travel restrictions are imposed by each country. I am aware that certainly for the World Championships in the USA at the end of this year there are substantial financial commitments made both by those intending to attend but also for the organisers of the event.
 
You need to know that the ICA are aware of these issues and have it now under constant review. We will, and the organisers of the World Championships will, keep sailors aware of the current position as time goes by. We will communicate any major developments as soon as we are aware of them, via NCA emails, the Owners Facebook site, and the Class website. The Worlds website will also show any up to date position or decision. Also to be able to make the right decisions it would be very helpful to have knowledge of the financial commitments that sailors and groups of sailors have made and what are the trigger dates that can affect these commitments. For example the last date for container cancellation without penalty or a similar date for flights booked. Once again you will all appreciate that these are unprecedented circumstances and we all want to make the right informed decisions along the way.
