5O5 Class: Behind in the count
Published on October 27th, 2021
After the 5O5 Class cancelled its 2020 World Championship in Sweden due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was all systems go for the 2021 edition in Bermuda on October 27-November 5 until that was cancelled too. Concern over travel issues due to COVID-19 quarantines and the impact of the pandemic on shipping costs led to the decision. The 5O5 Class hopes to avoid strike three with their 2022 World Championships on August 3-13 in Cork, Ireland. Until then, Mike Martin and Adam Lowry (USA) remain the reigning World Champions from their 2019 victory in Australia.
