Given the current situation of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the International Optimist Dinghy Association, in agreement with the Organizing Committee of the 2020 Optimist World Championship, scheduled from July 1st to 11th in Riva del Garda (Italy) has decided to postpone the event until a later date.

The continuous changes of the current international emergency have not yet allowed to identificate a certain date in which to place this important event organized by Fraglia Vela Riva, Italian Optimist Class Association, Riva del Garda Fierecongressi and Garda Trentino. The event is expected to gather in Italy over three hundred young athletes from all corners of the planet.

It goes without saying that the Organizing Committee is monitoring the situation on a daily basis and reserves the right to officially communicate the new dates as soon as the health situation allows to make a concrete point of the situation.

The 2020 Optimist World Championship is organized by IODA, Fraglia Vela Riva, Associazione Italiana Classe Optimist, Riva del Garda Fierecongressi, Garda Trentino SpA.
