“Registration is now open for the 2020 SSS Round the Rocks Race on Saturday August 8th. Note that there will be both Singlehanded and Doublehanded divisions. Please review the Covid-19 guidelines for Doublehanded racing.
A few other things to note, there will be 2 separate courses, one for Singlehanded and one for Doublehanded racers with 10 different starting divisions to spread out the fleet. Be sure to review the sailing instructions to understand the different course start times and divisions. There will be an entry limit of 80 boats for the Doublehanded divisions and no limit of Singlehanded entries. The skippers meeting will be via Zoom at 1930 on Wednesday 8/5 with login instructions to follow along with a virtual awards meeting on Wednesday August 19th @1930. The deadline to enter is Midnight 8/5. See you on the race course!”
Singlehanded TransPacific Yacht Race Update:
Given the gravity of the recent Covid-19 outbreak, the Singlehanded Sailing Society and registered skippers have concluded that the solo race from San Francisco’s Corinthian Yacht Club to Hanalei Bay in Kauai, with events at Nawiliwili Yacht Club, will be delayed until 2021. Factors playing heavily on the minds of the group included the need to not spread infection, the strain the pandemic has already placed on facilities in both locations, plus consideration of the risk of virus exposure to United States Coast Guard personnel in an emergency. The SSS is moving forward to offer an exciting event in 2021 for the singlehanded race to Hawaii.
