A further update on the status of the GP14 World Championships scheduled for July in Skerries, North Dublin is expected before the end of April.
GP14 Ireland Hon. Secretary Andy Johnston has told the class the International Committee in conjunction with the Skerries GP14 Worlds Organising Committee is in 'constant communications' with regard to the running of the World Championships and the threat posed by COVID-19 to the successful staging of the event.
As Afloat previously reported, more than 100 boats have now entered for the Championships at Skerries Sailing Club from July 24-29.
Johnston also advises the sailors that 'it is with regret but no surprise' that the Munsters at Cullaun Sailing Club and the Leinsters at (Mullingar Sailing Club) ear-marked for the weekends of May 2/3 and May 23/24 respectively have been postponed.
Depending on the COVID-19 situation, the Clubs would hope that one or both may be run at a later date this summer.
With travel restrictions in place across Ireland and the UK, all GP14 coaching dates have also been cancelled.
