2021 12mR Worlds Regatta Update

2021 12 Metre World Championship, Helsinki Finland

FROM: HENRIK ANDERSIN
TO: 2021 12mR WORLDS COMPETITORS
DATE: October 14, 2020

 

Dear 12 Metre Sailors,

The 2021 12mR World Championship, organized by NJK will be held on August 14th-22nd in Helsinki, Finland. At this time, we are proactively planning for the possibility that continued pandemic restrictions may limit the scope of our events. Therefore, the core Championship will consist of a 12mR Worlds sailing regatta only. Registration fees will be adjusted accordingly to reflect a reduction in social activities.

Registration for the 2021 12mR World Championship Regatta:

For those who have already registered for the 2020 event, re-registration is not required. Please review your current registration. New entries should register here. The updated Notice of Race with adjusted fees, and a new registration link will soon follow.

Registrations for the 2021 12mR World Championship Social Program:

In the case of eliminated or reduced pandemic-related restrictions, we are also planning a more extensive program of social events. We certainly hope that this will be the case and will announce details as circumstances develop, likely in mid-late spring 2021.

The 2021 12mR World Championship Committee will provided additional information re: new lower registration fees, accommodation alternatives and other event-related information in the near future. In the meantime…

I hope that you all stay safe and healthy,

Henrik Andersin, Chairman
2021 12mR World Championship Organizing Committee

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
