BUSA statement in response to Covid-19

The BUSA committee has been closely monitoring the rapidly evolving situation in respect of the Covid-19 global pandemic as well as reviewing government advice and consulting with BUCS. The decisions detailed below have been taken following careful consideration of the current situation we find ourselves in. BUSA, as an organisation representing and supporting student sailing, must put the health and safety of its members, volunteers and general public first.

With that in mind, the following decisions have been made:

BUCS Team Racing Championships (13 – 15 April 2020, Grafham Water SC) – CANCELLED

BUCS Match Racing Championships (17 – 19 April 2020, Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy) – CANCELLED

BUCS Yachting Nationals (5 – 9 April 2020, Gunwharf Quays/Portsmouth) – CANCELLED

BUSA Annual General Meeting (14 April 2020) full details here

We understand that some may find the above decisions frustrating, particularly given the many hours of training you will all have no doubt put in, but we do hope that you understand our reasons for doing so.

In the meantime, keep safe and we will all look forward to seeing you out on the water in the hopefully not too distant future.
