Cancellation Yngling Worlds 2020

posted in: Information | 0

Dear all,

We hope this mail finds you well and healthy. The Yacht Club Berlin Grünau (YCBG) has informed us, that they cannot host the Worlds in July 2020. The restrictions imposed by the german government and the City of Berlin are so strict, that it makes it impossible to hold the event. 

The IYA ExCo accepts and understands their decision, thus the Worlds 2020 are cancelled.
We would like to thank the YCBG and Yngling Germany, who have put a lot of time and effort into organising this event to date. It is disappointing for all, especially for all of us who were looking forward to this event. 

Looking forward, we are planning now with YCBG to extend their „Nebelpokal“ (fog trophy) to an international Yngling event from Oct. 2 – 4, 2020. Details will follow. About the Worlds 2021 and 2022, and the way how we want to hold our AGM 2020, we will inform before June 21.

Stay safe and let’s hope we can all get back to sailing soon!
