cancel culture, part 8

In recent months, the Covid-19 situation in The Netherlands had improved and with the number of new infections dropping dramatically, the government has relaxed the rules and gave the go-ahead for the Championships which we as organization have communicated to the sailors.

However, in the past two weeks things have taken a turn for the worse. The relaxed rules and regulations have resulted in a severe spike and a 10-fold in infections. Consequently, the government of the Netherlands has reinstated, most of the previous restrictions until August 13th.

Today, 15 July 2021, this has resulted that the Netherlands has obtained the “code Red” classification according the ECDC (European Centre for Disease and Control).

Without doubt, this will cause many travel restrictions and complications for most participants which brings the entire organization of our 8-Metre World Championship in serious jeopardy.

Furthermore, it is impossible to delay the final decision until the new guidelines and regulations are published on August 13th.
