as a result of the rapidly evolving COVID situation; we have made the following amendments to our 2020 Events calendar:
Munster Championship (RESTRICTED)
Kinsale Yacht Club 2rd/4th October
We are delighted to confirm that KYC will host this years Munsters on the weekend of the 3rd/4th October. Full Covid precautions will be undertaken to ensure that all sailors and visitors will enjoy a safe and competitive regatta. It is with regret however that we would ask all sailors from Level 3 counties DO NOT attend this event in the interests of participant safety and to show our commitment and willingness to adhere to all government advice. Full COVID health and travel declarations will be required on registration. Online entries at the early bird rates will be accepted until midnight Thursday 1st October. Refunds can be requested from firstname.lastname@example.org
Connaught Championships (RESTRICTED)
Lough Derg Yacht Club 17th/18th October
LDYC have indicated their willingness and hope to host the Connaught’s but will monitor the COVID situation in the weeks preceding the event. We will keep you informed of the news as it develops. COVID health and travel restrictions mentioned above will also apply.
Leinster Championships (POSTPONED)
Howth Yacht Club 31st Oct/1st Nov
With current Level 3 COVID restrictions at play in Dublin, the Leinsters at HYC has been postponed. We hope to run this event once the situation improves.
ILA Membership Fees (rolled on)
In light of the disrupted season we have had thus far, the ILA Committee has decided to roll forward 2020 fees to 2021. All sailors who have paid subscriptions in 2020 will not be required to join for 2021.
ILA events will only be run in Level 2 venues and will restrict participants from counties of Level 3 and above.
We are committed to running our outstanding events where we can in a safe and controlled manner. Given the changeable nature of restrictions, we will give every opportunity for an event to proceed and apologise for the late changes.
We would hope all affected sailors will understand and adhere to these restrictions and we look forward to welcoming all disappointed sailors to further events once restrictions are lifted.
