XXI World Championship Postponed

Post by phil r » Tue May 19, 2020 9:51 pm

As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty about international travel to Australia from the USA and Europe, which is likely to continue for the rest of the year, plus potential issues relating to quarantine, travel insurance and shipping containers, it has been decided by the ICF Sailing Committee and the Australian organisers to postpone the International Canoe XXI World Championship planned to take place at Lake Macquarie YC in December 2020/January 2021, by one year.

The XXI World Championship will now take place at Lake Macquarie YC between Thursday 30 December 2021 and Saturday 8 January 2022, with registration, measuring and practice taking place for the first few days and racing starting on 2 January. Further details of the programme will be issued in due course.

This decision has been made with some reluctance, but it is hoped that some normality will return during 2021, and by postponing the World Championship by a year will ensure a really successful event.

XXI International Canoe World Championship 2021/2022 - Further Postponement

The ICF Sailing Committee has been monitoring the Covid 19 situation and has reluctantly come to the conclusion that with continuing international travel restrictions and quarantine requirements, it will not be feasible for most of the international fleet to travel to Australia for the World Championship in December 2021/January 2022.

Therefore, the XXI IC World Championship to take place at Lake Macquarie Yacht Club is postponed by 1 year to late December 2022 to early January 2023.

The provisional programme agreed with LMYC is:
29 & 30 December 2022 Registration
31 December 2022 Registration & Invitation race
2 to 8 January 2023 World championship races
9 January 2023 New York Canoe Club International Challenge Cup

It is hoped by announcing the postponement now, IC sailors around the World can make plans for sailing in their own countries and continents, in advance of travelling to Australia for the World Championship in December 2022 to January 2023.
