Dear Sailing Friends,

We have important news to share regarding the Halloween Regatta. Following our Race Management meeting on September 30 and in consultation with IODA, we decided to take an important decision. In order to give priority to and manage our technical and race management resources optimally for the 2020 Optimist European Championship, we have decided to postpone the Halloween Regatta to later dates following the IODA event. 

When we entered our traditional Halloween Regatta in the calendar, and thought it as a "warm-up" regatta before the Optimist Europeans we bid for, we didn’t anticipate that so many sailors would enter. Additionally,  the requirements at that time for the management of Covid 19 to ensure the safety of all were still developing. That being said, our main priority and focus right now is to provide and deliver optimal conditions both onshore and afloat, ensuring safe conditions for all participants and enjoyment of a successful 2020 Optimist European Championship.  

We anticipate at this time that the Halloween Regatta will be rescheduled for November 13 – 15.  Already paid fees will either be returned or applied to the rescheduled event. More information will be forthcoming.

Thank you all for entering and looking forward to seeing you soon.

Kind regards,

Mitja Margon
President of JK Pirat
