I am disappointed to report another 2020 casualty of the Covid-19 Pandemic: The Maple Bay Regatta, scheduled for September 4-6 is cancelled for this year.

Only three of the 13 races in the Vancouver Island Racing Series (CRASH, CFSA and Thermopylae) remain scheduled at this time. There is also little opportunity for a VIRS “Wild Card” score based on a non-VIRS regatta. Discussion is ongoing as to how the series could be scored this year, but it appears increasingly likely to be a “non-starter” for this year.

With regards
