The 2020 Optimist World Championship on Lake Garda rescheduled for August has now been canceled definitively. The Optimist class tried hard to find a new organizer for the fall and had with Rio, Hong Kong, and Spain, three interested parties. However, the still drastic Covid-19-related travel restrictions have now led to a definitive cancelation of the Championship. Hard especially for the oldest Optimist sailors, who will exceed the age limit (15 years) in the coming year. —– The news.
