Announcement of 2020 DF95 National Championship Regatta
Given the odd times we are experiencing, it was imperative that the NCR venue be settled and with a long enough window to allow for planning. While events may still eventually impede and force a reconsideration in holding this event, the COA Executive Board has elected to put a stake in the ground and start planning for the best instead of waiting for the worst. It is to be noted that one of our primary goals as a race committee will be to follow whatever safety protocols are in place in December to ensure the health and well-being of our competitors and race volunteers.
