Skeeters cancel 2021 Championship
Published on November 15th, 2020
The Skeeter is the “Formula One” of ice yachting, a wide open development class where the super powerful Skeeters are the fastest boats on the ice. But despite their speed, the International Skeeter Association (ISA) isn’t able to outrun the restrictions of COVID-19.
After soft water sailors saw events cancelled in 2020, now it’s the turn for the hard water crowd. Here’s their statement:
The ISA Executive Committee and International Race Committee met on November 11, 2020 to discuss the status of the 2021 ISA Championship Regatta currently scheduled for the second weekend of January 2021.
After careful consideration of the possible impacts of gathering our members from across the nation to meet in either the Western or Eastern Regions of the ISA, our consensus was to cancel the 2021 Regatta.
We feel that local club sailing will be possible with safety protocols in place for face covering, separation, and only outdoor activity.
We encourage everyone to get out and sail locally. Mark your calendars for the 2022 ISA on the second weekend in January 2022.
See you on the ice.
