The organisers of the SailGP international high-performance catamaran circuit have announced inevitable the cancellation of the New York event originally set to take place in June this year.
A short email statement sent to media today read as follows:
Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, SailGP has suspended its 2020 season through the end of June.
As a result, New York SailGP will not take place on June 12-13 as scheduled, and ticket purchasers will be automatically refunded in full by the end of June.
The cancellation follows an earlier announcement pulling the plug on the planned San Francisco event scheduled for May 2-3, 2020.
