HELLO INTREPID SAILORS!
Hello Intrepid Sailors,
It is with deep disappointment and sadness that we have to officially announce the cancellation of our long-awaited event. The 2020 edition of the Solvay Sailing Cup will not take place as foreseen on September 18-20 due to COVID-19 measures in The Netherlands.
Why did we take this decision?
Sailing rules in The Netherlands are currently the following: maximum 6 people per boat, from maximum 3 different families. Official checks might occur. As event organisers, we are responsible regarding the respect of those rules and cannot take this risk. Moreover, the situation is not really clear regarding the possibility to have 100 people eating together at the restaurant, neither to be authorised to organise the party. For all these reasons above and to avoid any severe financial loss, we took the difficult decision to cancel the event in cooperation with the boat rental company.
What about the refund?
As announced previously, all teams will be granted a full refund since the cancellation is due to Coronavirus.
What about sailing anyway this weekend?
All the boats which were booked for the Sailing Cup are now available for personal rentals on the Enjoy Sailing website. Or feel free to contact directly the boat rental Company by email email@example.com We have special agreement in terms of prices. Up to each team to decide to sail 'on its own', involving their own responsibilities regarding healthcare measures. First arrived, first served.
