The International J/70 Class Association Executive Committee, working with the Organizing Authority of the 2020 European Championship to be held in Copenhagen Denmark, has determined, because of the varying levels of infection and disruption across the world, to postpone the J/70 European Championship hosted by the Royal Danish Yacht Club to June 4-12, 2021. The Executive Committee has been closely monitoring the worldwide developments in the COVID-19 pandemic. They understand the huge commitment of time and money it takes to participate in a major Championship, as well as the enormous resources that our host clubs dedicate to such events. With respect to other major J/70 Class events that remain on the schedule for 2020, the Executive Committee remains in constant discussions with Organizing Authorities and expects to make decisions no less than 75 days prior to the scheduled date for the events. We hope that this approach will help clarify the way the Class is addressing this evolving situation and allow our Class members to plan accordingly. The Executive Committee plans to meet regularly and will provide updates as needed. In the meantime, the Class wishes all J/70 sailors and their families the best in these difficult times. We look forward to resuming sailing as soon as we can.
