RORC – Update on forthcoming races:

Myth of Malham – Cancelled
De Guingand Bowl – Cancelled
East Coast Race – Under review
IRC National Championship – Potential Date Change

The Royal Ocean Racing Club announce further cancellations and changes to some of its key events as the season progresses and the COVID-19 pandemic continues throughout April. The decision comes after continued close monitoring of Government and medical advice, and in line with guidance from World Sailing and the RYA. The RORC’s intention is to adapt its race programme and courses as necessary in order to get members and competitors on the water as soon as it is possible and appropriate.
