As per the release below, the 2020 Laser Nationals have been cancelled. The Irish Laser Association would like to thank both the RCYC and MBSC and all their volunteers for the extraordinary effort put in over the last weeks and months in trying to make this event happen. It is with a heavy heart that this decision was taken and trust you will appreciate the reasons for making this difficult call.

For Immediate Release – 2030 Tuesday 18th August 2020
The Irish Laser National Championships, hosted by the Royal Cork YC, and the Irish Laser 4.7 National Championships hosted by Monkstown Bay SC, have been cancelled.
Both Organising Clubs, along with the Irish Laser Association and Irish Sailing have given careful consideration to both public health guidelines and also the impending Storm Ellen due to hit Ireland on Thursday and Friday. Notwithstanding the ability for the event to run behind closed doors under the revised guidelines, the combination of that, the weather alert impacting sailing on Thursday and Friday and the number of people traveling, it was decided to cancel the event in the best interest of competitors, officials and everyone involved.
