Wellbeing of racers and volunteers has driven decision to reschedule the annual April race
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., March 17, 2020 –
In light of the COVID 19 virus, the Newport Ocean Racing Association’s Board of Directors unanimously voted to reschedule the 73rd annual Newport to Ensenada Yacht International Race until April 23, 2021.
“Safety of our volunteers and racers is always the top priority, leaving this decision as the only viable choice,” said Commodore William Gibbs.
All current 2020 paid entrants are now automatically registered as 2021 competitors with no action required. Entrants may also request a refund or elect for a tax-deductible donation of their fee to aid with NOSA’s 2020 incurred expenses by emailing [email protected]
“We are grateful for the support of our volunteers, sponsors, and racers. We look forward to weathering this current crisis, and making the 2021 event better than ever,” announced Commodore Gibbs.
