COVID-19 Impact on Racing at Etobicoke Yacht Club
May 30th 2020 – On Tuesday, Ontario Sailing announced, “Sailing competition under Racing Rules of Sailing is not permitted as no activity can take place if there is any likelihood of individuals coming within 2m of each other.”, and that “Recreational organized programs including Learn to Cruise, Learn to Sail, club race nights, cruising trips, etc. are not permitted.”
The racing season at EYC has not yet started and boats have not launched. The season will remain suspended until direction is provided from Ontario Sailing that we are able to go ahead. This is in the interest of safety of our members, families and our community. We look forward to welcoming our fleet back when it can be done safely. Registration for events will not begin until we have a clear path forward, and are able to determine what types of programming we are able to offer based on regulating and governing bodies.
