    Default Corona Virus Impact (Covid 19)

    Due to the Covid 19 Virus issue we are considering the following (note the word considering):

    Given the guidance coming from medical officials, the shutting down of non essential establishments, and the shutting down of yacht clubs it seems we should go virtual with all future meetings. Boat inspections could also be a problem. The Pacific Cup, as an example, has just cancelled all inspections in the Bay Area for the time being.

    Given the above I am suggesting the following steps:

    - All seminars will be online. We can use the conference call system we have in place to do this. Kristen - can you confirm that it will support slide presentations ? Do we need to purchase a subscription to allow a full set of features and up to 20 dial ups ? Please let me know.

    -Inspections will delayed until April 30 th. Lets hope the Bay area travel and meeting restrictions are lifted by then.

    -We can discuss solutions for the skippers meeting and luncheon at a later date. Let us hope that the virus will be under control by the time of the start of the event and those can be held as planned. The same applies to the finish party and use of the "Yellow House".

    One advantage of a single handed race to Hawaii - you will he well socially isolated once you are under the Golden Gate. Crewed races will have a challenge in this regard.

    Hoping for a quick recovery to the area, the Nation, and the Planet.

    If the curve is flattened as we all ardently hope it will be, the timing is going to be very tight. Hoping for the best.

    The Real Jacqueline and I are huddled down with a couple of cases of sardines and some trail mix.

    That's what you call emergency surf and turf.

    HAWAII Adds a 14 day quarantine to all arrivals into the State:

    Maybe this will be lifted in time.

    If it takes 14 days to get there, haven't we served our sentences concurrently?

    I Googled for the text of the order but can't find it. Understandably, the articles emphasize arrival by aircraft.

    Actual Order is attached.
    Found the link here.

    To Bob's question, the answer is no, not to the letter of the order.
    Emphasis added.

    §2 Mandatory Quarantine. All persons entering the State
    shall be subject to mandatory self-quarantine, except those
    persons performing emergency response or critical infrastructure
    functions who have been exempted by the Director of Emergency
    Management. The period of self-quarantine begins from the time
    of entry into the State and lasts 14 days or the duration of the
    person’s presence in the State, whichever is shorter.


    having said all that I also note that, at least for now, the order expires May 20th.

    Standing by, without a boat (for now).

    Larry Conklin called, asked that the SSS will “ help keep Kauai green” when we come. I promised we will spend money when we come. BTW, the Wake Up cafe is for sale.
