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.
The CORK Board
