The Covid-19 is an unprecedented situation and we would like to extend our sincere thoughts to all those affected by this crisis. As organisers of the SOF, our actions are driven by the desire to ensure the safety of the athletes participating at sailing events such as the SOF.

The situation around the COVID-19 virus is impacting the preparations for the SOF and is changing day by day.

In conjunction with World Sailing, and the other organisers, we are all trying to provide the best framework for the athletes to train, prepare and eventually be selected for the Olympics.

Subject to the final dates of World and European championships of the Olympic classes which are evolving at the moment, the SOF shall try to provide a framework for the athletes to train and prepare for the Olympics in the second half of May.

The final decision will be published by Friday, April 17th 2020.
