As chair of the Cornish Hen Regatta for 2020, I'm sending notice to our volunteers that we're cancelling Cornish Hen for 2020. The rules under Stage 3 would technically permit an event to proceed. However, staff and the Sail Training Committee concluded that running was not worthwhile for the following reasons:

  • The potential negative public health and public relations effects of a positive case occurring at the event.
  • The optics in the community of inviting a large group of people from outside town.
  • The added logistics of running an event on our relatively small grounds while observing social distancing rule.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. Thank you all for your commitment to junior sailing over the years, and I hope by next spring we'll be able to get out for Lilac.
