The B14 Class has received notice from Rock Sailing and Waterski Club that "it is still not possible to run any regattas. This is due to the need for social distancing onshore, during launching, recovery from the races and at any social evets and briefing onshore. We at RSWSC are very disappointed not to be able to run any formal event this year."

So it is with heavy heart that we have to cancel the 2020 European/UK National Championships. Whilst naturally very disappointing, this is not entirely unexpected and allows us to now plan for the 2021 season.

Rob Taylor, European Class Chair said:

"We will continue to work with Rock Sailing and Waterski Club to run the Euro/Nationals event in 2021 around the same time of year, with Whitstable YC playing host to our 2022 Nationals. Further details of the 2021 calendar will be published as soon as possible.

"Thank you to all involved for the work that has been put into organising this event, and that will continue to make the 2021 event better than ever."
