Our COVID Summer (Updated 2020 Fleet One Design Schedule)
It’s an understatement to say 2020 has been a challenging year, and a strange sailing season – already two weeks past Memorial Day and a many boats in the fleet remain on the hard, covered, and winterized. A few boats have been out pleasure sailing (with proper social distancing and quarantined crews, of course), but with no regattas to-date and no fleet events, 2020 is clearly shaping up to be a summer like no other.
The health and safety of our fleet remains the highest priority. Local yacht clubs are beginning to schedule and re-schedule postponed regattas, with the first event – the EYC Summer Classic, scheduled for Saturday June 27. As of June 15 we have 3 boats registered. To register visit the EYC Racing Page.
The remainder of the Chesapeake Alerion 2020 One Design racing schedule is below. Participatoin remains somewhat in flux and dependent on the individual assessments of skippers and crews. Please also be sure to check the NOR and SI’s carefully for any relevant health and safety information or other COVID-19 related changes.
