Season Racing Update:

Singlehanded Farallones Race Update:

After discussions with the YRA and USCG, the SSS must postpone the upcoming Singlehanded Farallones race originally scheduled for 5/16/20. The race will not meet current Covid-19 safety guidelines from all of the Bay Area counties, and a permit has not been issued by the USCG. Dialogue is ongoing to reschedule in June.  We will keep you posted as we learn more about the possibility of any upcoming SSS races. 

Regards,

The SSS Board

 

Singlehanded TransPacific Yacht Race Update:

Given the gravity of the recent Covid-19 outbreak, the Singlehanded Sailing Society and registered skippers have concluded that the solo race from San Francisco’s Corinthian Yacht Club to Hanalei Bay in Kauai, with events at Nawiliwili Yacht Club, will be delayed until 2021. Factors playing heavily on the minds of the group included the need to not spread infection, the strain the pandemic has already placed on facilities in both locations, plus consideration of the risk of virus exposure to United States Coast Guard personnel in an emergency. The SSS is moving forward to offer an exciting event in 2021 for the singlehanded race to Hawaii.

Regards,
Singlehanded Sailing Society
