Since the outbreak of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the situation has quickly evolved from a national challenge to a continental one, and now we are realising the global perspective of the pandemic.  We now realise the magnitude of COVID-19; the virus has spread with unprecedented rage and now the world has come to halt. The health and safety of the global population has been the first priority, and World Sailing’s thoughts are with everyone worldwide fighting the virus.

Over the last few weeks there has been a lot of communication and information sharing within the sailing community, and I would like to address you all with an update on recent proceedings.
