ACT 1 & ACT 2 of the Melges 24 2020 Nordic Trophy Series - ABANDONED
March 14, 2020 - Aarhus, Denmark - ACT 1 & ACT 2 OF THE MELGES 24 2020 NORDIC TROPHY SERIES - ABANDONED DUE TO THE COVID-19
It has been determined by the chairmen of the Danish, Norwegian and Swedish Melges 24 Class Associations to abandon the first part of the events in the 2020 Nordic Trophy Series due to the COVID-19.
To be clear, this means Act 1 (18-19 April) and Act 2 (2-3 May) in Aarhus, Denmark are abandoned.
With the restrictions to travel, work and social gatherings that have imposed by governments and the speed at which they are being made, it is our shared belief that even more stringent restrictions will be imposed in the near future. This situation is simply out of our hands.
Understanding this, it is not possible to prepare for these regattas or implement contingency plans for unknown circumstances.
We will continue to closely monitor the situation within the Nordic region and abroad.
At this time, the subsequent events in the Nordic Trophy Series are still on-schedule.
However, NORs and SIs will not be released for these events until the Nordic national class associations have more clarity on how to proceed.
We thank all teams for their understanding and wish you all “good wind” in the days that lie ahead.
