Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic the Open Skiff Executive Committee together with the Local Organizing Authority Lega Navale Italiana Sezione Sulcis has been forced to cancel the 2020 World Championships.

The LOA has been granted the right to organize the World Championships in 2021.

Entry fees and charter fees are transferred to the 2021 World Championships, without any increase in fees.

If sailors are not able to attend the 2021 World Championships they are asked to contact for entry fee and/or charter fee refunds.

The Pre-Notice of Race has been updated.

For now stay safely at home and we will see each other on the water in better times.
