2020 Marblehead Racing Association Season Update
April 15, 2020
The MRA has been monitoring the impact of the COVID-19 virus on the sailing community both locally and nationally. While it is not yet clear what the impact will be on the MRA schedule for 2020, barring unforeseen modifications to government regulations, the following is a framework that we plan to adhere to:
- As the circumstances change, the MRA will adjust and communicate to the MRA community any appropriate amendments to the sailing season calendar
- Events on the schedule which are cancelled will be posted as they become known
- Each of the MRA yacht clubs (BYC, CYC, EYC) will manage requirements of social distancing in order to ensure the safety of all participants (sailors, dock staff and race committee personnel)
The good news is that the MRA schedules a series of sailing events and we have added additional racing days into the fall.
MRA online registration is expected to open on May 1, 2020, and the Spring First Series is currently Saturday and Sunday May 23 and 24.
Stay well and stay safe. We look forward to seeing everyone on the water in the not too distant future.
Mark E. Toso,
Chairman, Marblehead Racing Association
