Commodore’s Welcome Letter


Hello to all racers and SSS members,

The SSS board met on Tuesday to discuss the effects of the Covid-19 virus on club activities.
Because of the Governor of California’s Executive Order to “stay at home” until further notice, the Round the Rocks race that was scheduled for April 11th, and associated meetings, have been postponed. The SSS board is evaluating whether it will be possible to run the race later in the season, and will keep you informed.

The board is actively monitoring the public health situation in order to assess whether the Singlehanded Farallones race can continue, as planned, for May 16th.
A decision will be made inside the next few weeks and notice published.

The running of the 2020 SHTP is still under review and a decision will be made in the coming weeks.
The board is concerned with the safety of SSS members, as well as, other members of the boating community including USCG, fire and rescue, and marina personnel. These are unprecedented times and we extend our thoughts to anyone who has has been directly affected by the illness.
Keep well and keep flattening the curve.

The SSS Board
