The Lightning Class Executive Committee and Youth Worlds Committee has determined that due to ongoing concerns over the coronavirus, the AP flag for postponement has been raised on the 2020 Harken Blockheads Youth World Championship. The event will not be held in 2020 and the rescheduled dates will be announced in the months ahead as our options are clarified.
This prestigious and highly anticipated event is an important one for our membership and this decision was made after careful deliberation. We are incredibly grateful for the many hours our hosts in Sheboygan have dedicated to the planning of this event, the strong support from Harken and also for the great amount of interest we’ve seen from youth sailors in Lightning countries around the world. As we better define this event’s postponement we will keep you updated.
Until then, Stay Well, Keep Safe and Think Sailing!
