Because of increasing numbers of COVID cases in the UK and continuing restrictions for competitors travelling to the UK from Ireland, Denmark and the Netherlands the organisers at Medway YC with the support of UKWA have postponed the Wayfarer European Championships scheduled for 5-8 August 2021 until 2022 (date and venue to be decided).

Medway YC is obviously disappointed not to be hosting the regatta but postponing it until travel is less restricted and the virus is better controlled/more people have been vaccinated was the only sensible decision in all the circumstances.

This decision only affects the European Championships. The UK National Championships which were to be held alongside the Euros will be going ahead as planned from 5-8 August.

If you are planning to enter the Nationals but haven’t yet done so could you please email the UKWA Racing Secretary, Tim Townsend at [race@wayfarer.org.uk] so that the organisers at Medway YC can have a better idea of numbers.
