2020 Laser Canadian Championships are cancelled

 

 

 

 

 

 

The safety and well-being of participants, volunteers, staff, visitors and community at large continues to be top priority for the CORK Board of Directors and the ILCA North American class.  As a result, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Laser Canadian Championships.  This event was originally scheduled for July 2-5 2020 at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.   CORK is now set to host the Laser Canadian championships in 2021.   We look forward to announcing the dates and details in the coming months.

The CORK leadership continues to closely monitor all developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  CORK will continue to prepare for events scheduled later in the 2020 season following the necessary measures recommended by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), provincial and municipal health authorities and Sail Canada.  The CORK leadership remains engaged with the City of Kingston and the local health authority to develop a plan on how events might be conducted as restrictions are eased.   Decisions to host each event in 2020 will be made not later than 45 days ahead of the scheduled start date.

Our wish is for everyone to continue to stay safe, practice physical distancing and follow the guidelines and recommendations of your local government.

Thank you for your understanding and support during this difficult time.

CORK Update

Dear friends,

The situation with respect to CORK events remains uncertain. On one hand, the City has changed the previous order that recreational facilities will remain closed until 31 August to be “until further notice”, and as you will read below, City staff are conducting annual maintenance at the two municipal marinas. On the other hand, there is a strong feeling that Kingston and area has a very good situation with respect to the number of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and fatalities (zero), and this should be protected against infection arriving from beyond the local area. The CORK leadership remains engaged with City Council, City staff and the local health authority. We will let you know as soon as we have the appropriate direction and can decide on our events.

Stay safe.

Updates to recreation services due to COVID-19

 

April 30, 2020

The City of Kingston and community partners are beginning to explore options for how municipal special events can be held in alternate formats that do not encourage large gatherings.

With recreation facilities closed until further notice under provincial direction, the City is cancelling the Victoria Day celebrations and fireworks scheduled for May 18. More information about the possibility of a virtual Canada Day will be shared in the weeks to come. Virtual events are an evolving trend and staff will look to best practices and techniques used by other events and municipalities.

Staff continue to communicate with permit holders and special event organizers regarding the impact of facility closures on public events and gatherings for the spring and summer season. This allows organizations to develop cancellation or contingency plans and communicate with their participants and vendors.

 

Municipal marinas

Preliminary seasonal work is underway at Confederation Basin and Portsmouth Olympic Harbour marinas, utilizing full-time staff from other closed recreation facilities. Members of the public may notice City staff working along the waterfront. This work is maintenance in nature, but also typically takes several weeks to complete and therefore helps to prepare for the potential of re-opening of the marinas to boaters should provincial emergency orders be amended to permit the operation of boat launches or marinas, subject to measures put in place in coordination with local public health. Safety precautions, including physical distancing, will be in place during all maintenance work.

Decisions regarding special events and opening of marinas will be made in consultation with KFL&A Public Health and will adhere to Ontario’s Framework for Reopening and provincial emergency orders.
