Notice of Postponement: Shark Worlds in Montreal

In response to the global Covid 19 outbreak the 2020 Shark Worlds Organizing Committee, in consultation with the Canadian and the International Shark Class Association, have been evaluating the viability of hosting the event as scheduled. We recognize the severity of the current crisis and considering the continued escalation of infection and how this will disrupt sailors and the host club, we have concluded that running the event as planned is impossible.

As we know there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding this matter. In the end, the organizers and class only want to host an event which is worthy of the title while also offering visitors a safe and enjoyable experience. These factors will be paramount in our decision making.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will update the membership of alternate dates or a decision to cancel the event for 2020 as soon as we can. Expect an update in the week of April 20th.

You will also be able to find updates on the websites and Facebook pages below. In the meantime, competitors are advised not to incur any non-refundable expenses (travel, accommodation, etc.).

Competitors who have already paid their registration may ask for a full refund by emailing sharkworlds2020@gmail.com. Alternatively, those who have paid can wait until a final decision is made.

This is a very difficult time and the priority right now is to do what is necessary to ensure the health and safety of our families, friends and communities. We appreciate everyone's patience and continued support.
