West Kirby 2020
Marblehead and Ten Rater Class
International Radio Sailing World Championships
It is with deep regret due to the ongoing Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, and the uncertainty of the possible timescale before things get back to normal, that we announce the postponement of the WK 2020 World Championships.
This has not been a decision taken lightly by our WK 2020 Events committee, in consultation with the IRSA, MYA, West Kirby Sailing Club and Birkenhead Radio Sailing and Power Club, but given the latest advice on increased risks to social gatherings, travel restrictions and the duty of care we must provide to competitors, race and umpiring teams, volunteers and host club members and staff, the possibility of running our event has become untenable at this time.
As you can imagine, a not insignificant amount of time in preparation and effort has gone into the hosting of this event and we would like to offer our sincere thanks to our many volunteers, sponsors and committed team members across all levels. It is hoped that through ongoing discussions with the IRSA and our host partner clubs and associations that we may be in a position to host through the same period at West Kirby in 2021 to make our vision a reality. Any updates on this will be shared on our website at www.westkirbyworlds2020.co.uk in due course.
We thank you all for your support and offer our best thoughts to our worldwide friends and family within the Radio Sailing and wider Sailing communities in these difficult times.
