Published on March 12th, 2020

New Rochelle, NY (March 12, 2020) – Due to increasing concerns with COVAD19 (Coronavirus), the three Sunfish Championships on March 14-22 will not be held as scheduled in Clearwater, FL. The United States Sunfish Class Association regrets the inconvenience this decision may represent but was deemed necessary by Class leadership and event organizers.

2020 Sunfish International Masters Championship
2020 Sunfish US Team Race Championship

That said, there are numerous questions yet to be resolved regarding this cancellation including:

Will these World Qualifier Championships be rescheduled?
This has yet to be determined and will depend upon what happens in the next few months regarding the overall state of the nation’s health.

Will I receive a refund of my entry fee?
Yes, but its likely it will not be a full refund. The organizing committee has already spent funds in preparation for the regatta. Once those expenses have been tallied, appropriate notifications and refunds will issued.

I’m already on my way south, can I still go sailing in Clearwater?
Yes, the sailing center in Clearwater will welcome any registered sailors who still would like to sail recreationally in their waters.
