In light of the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic, and the cancellation of most key selection events, the 2021 edition of the Tour will not take place.

Discussions between the Chair of BUSA and President of ICSA have taken place, where the feasibility of carrying out a summer tour this year was fully considered. In both countries, student sailing has been severely impacted and the current rate of infection is still high in both the USA and UK. Moving towards the next edition, discussions will be held around the structure and future of the Tour to ensure it is still an opportunity that is seen as the pinnacle of the student sailing experience. More information about these discussions and the associated selection criteria will be posted in due course.

Please direct any questions about this notice or the Tour to Karen Thomas, BUSA Chair.
