Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the second event of the 2020 52 SUPER SERIES season, which was scheduled to take place in Cape Town, South Africa from March 31st to April 4th has been cancelled.
Following final consultation between the 52 SUPER SERIES’ Board of Directors, in light of the deteriorating COVID-19 pandemic, the decision was taken on Friday afternoon and takes account of local health authorities’ advice in South Africa, WHO guidelines and those in force in the many countries where 52 SUPER SERIES sailors, staff and their families reside or travel through.
“Our absolute priority right now is safeguarding the continued good health of the extended 52 SUPER SERIES family around the world and that of our hosts and the wider community in South Africa,” Agustin Zuluéta CEO of the 52 SUPER SERIES commented. “We have been constantly reviewing the situation and this is the correct course of action. We will continue to monitor fast evolving developments.”
