Dear Sailors, 

As you know,  KYC, being a non-essential business, is closed to all activities at present with the exception of the food Take-Out service.  We do not know when current restrictions will be eased/ lifted and/or what form that will take when they do.  COVID-19 measures are likely to impact the 2020 regatta season at KYC. 

In relation to 2020 hosted regattas, we cannot know if the restrictions will be lifted in time to host some, or all of the events in our program.  We are directed by the various Governments and the City of Kingston and will have to respond accordingly.

For the present, however, we will proceed with preparations for the season's events (Notice of Race, etc.) since without these we will not be able to run the events.

We will review the events, continually, as the dates get closer.  One month before each event, we will consider to either proceed, cancel, postpone or re-schedule, or otherwise alter, according to circumstances, legislation and knowledge at that time.  This will be done in consultation with the classes, to gauge their wishes.  It may be possible to reschedule some events to later in the season, if appropriate.

We will shortly be posting the 2020 Hosted regatta program to the KYC Website.  Pages for events will start to include Notice of Race, etc., as appropriate;  Situation updates will be posted to the Regattas page of the KYC website.

Online Entries for events will open for each event when we are able to confirm that it will proceed (approximately one month prior to the event).

We hope that sailors will be raring to go if and when we get going.  We will endeavour to provide competitive racing in a safe environment.

If you have any questions regarding this season's regattas, please do email me.

Stay Safe and well


Robert Weguelin
Director at Large (Regattas), Kingston Yacht Club
