VM har blivit inställt på grund av corona pandemin. Detta meddelade Internationella 2.4mR Förbundet idag.
World Championship 2020 Cancellation
Hi AllWe 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
Lite information från internationella förbundet angående VM i USA och EM i Tyskland.
Hi All We have a very full and exciting NewYear 2020 to look forward to. The decision to hold the Worlds next year in November at Davis Island Yacht Club gives an opportunity to enjoy top class racing in a top Yacht Club with excellent facilities, disability aware, on super water, hopefully warm. The timing of these championships fits neatly into the timeframe of the European sailing season and allows all sailors the opportunity to do all events. Shipping to that part of the USA is regular sailings with fairly short sailing times and if organised well need not involve a lottery win to fund. The Davis Island Yacht Club in association with the US NCA will soon be giving us a living brochure online to encourage our thoughts along the lines of entry. The Para World Championships will be part of the Open Worlds and will result in a champion from extracted results from the races overall.
Attached to this email is also the details for the 2020 2.4mR European Championships which is being held as part of Travemuende Woche. Once again we have been very lucky to have had the invitation for us to be part of that week and it is a huge opportunity to show our boat to a wider racing community in a country that is beginning to take the 2.4mR to its heart. The championships will include the German Nationals. A serious championship it is but it is also the chance for a real summer holiday for the whole of our 2.4mR family.
