Dear registered owners and crews of the 12mrR Worlds 2020,

Due to the worldwide prolonged travel restrictions and curfews caused by the Covid-19 outbreak, the organizing committee of the 12mR Worlds 2020 and the International Twelve Metre Association have decided to postpone the event. The organizing yacht club NJK welcome participants on August 14th to 22nd to the Worlds 2021, which will coincide with the 160th anniversary of the club.

All registration fees will be reimbursed. Participants are kindly asked to cancel their hotel reservations as soon as possible. We are sorry for the unfortunate circumstances, but look forward to a great event in 2021.

All the best,

Henrik Andersin

Chairman of the 12mR Worlds organizing committee
