“I hope you are all well.

Our J111 2020 Worlds is cancelled.

I have discussed the matter with owners, the class association and RORC. The strong consensus view is that even if yacht racing is permitted in September we are unlikely to get enough boats to make a serious event. Further, the announcement by Key Yachting that the J Cup will take place (if at all) on 3-5 September, gives J111 owners the opportunity to get out racing and possibly socialising with a broader group of sailors at that time.

A big thank you to everyone who helped organise the J111 2020 Worlds. Special mentions to Simon Grier-Jones who put many hours of work into it and to Steve Cole and RORC for their professionalism and support.

Best wishes to all of you and looking forward to meeting whenever we can get back onto the water.”
