After considerable assessment and review, the board of the C. Thomas Clagett, Jr. Memorial Clinic and Regatta have determined that due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the 2020 Clagett Regatta in Newport and the Clagett/Oakcliff Match Race Clinegatta will be postponed until 2021.

"Extraordinary times require extraordinary actions. Safety, health, and fun have always been Clagett's guidelines. Although The Clagett Newport and the Clagett/Oakcliff regattas are being postponed from 2020 to 2021, we will be reaching out to our Clagett sailors and extended Clagett family over the summer to keep Clagett participants and supporters engaged through shared camaraderie by participating in the Dave and Dave online coaching sessions and other fun activities. I am looking forward to being "Virtually" connected with the Clagett sailing community over the coming months," commented Clagett President and Co-Founder Judy Clagett McLennan (Portsmouth, R.I.)

"Safety is even more of a priority in this unprecedented time. Oakcliff is finding creative and practical solutions for many of the new challenges but not for all. The required social distancing cannot be maintained at a regatta serving disabled sailors so postponing to 2021 is the smart move. We remain committed to the event and look forward to next summer," said Oakcliff Sailing Executive Director, Dawn Riley.

Dates for the 18th Clagett Regatta and the 5th Clagett/Oakcliff Match Race Clinegatta, now being held in 2021 will be announced in due course.

The Clagett would like to thank their sponsors, supporters, volunteers and partners for their continued support.
