In an ever changing environment of health and safety concerns the IOM Region 6 Championships is hereby cancelled. The State of California and more importantly the City of San Diego has stated that there is a stay at home order and outside activity is limited to “essential needs.” We apologize for the inconvenience and the expectation of holding the event, but our concern is for the safety of the participants and to ensure we comply with city and state regulations. We hope you all stay safe and we look forward to safer sailing in the not to distant future.
2020 IOM European Championship: Postponement
April 29, 2020
IOMICA VC events has received a memorandum from ITA NCA requesting the postponement of the European Championship until October 2021.
(Note: all international sailing events in Italy have now been cancelled or postponed)
Whilst it is several months away from the event, and considering the uncertainty of COVID 19 in the host country and around the world, IOMICA VC events accepts the recommendation of the ITA NCA to postpone the event.
This decision has not been taken lightly but with the wellbeing and safety of all competitors and race officials paramount, it is a necessary one.
As a result the bidding for the IOM World Championship will be suspended until further notice and bidding opened for other possible continental championships to take place in 2021. Bids are welcomed from today until 6th July 2020. On conclusion of this process, the bidding will be reopened for the IOM World Championship which will take place in 2022.
Stay safe !
