COVID-19 Considerations

The organising authority are optimistic that any COVID-19 restrictions that may apply in any Australian state during December 2022 and January 2023 will permit the regatta to proceed.
The organising committee however understands that interstate sailors will need to make travel accommodation arrangements in advance of the regatta.  The committee will therefore reassess the SA Government Regulations regularly and will advise any changes by email to all registered competitors as soon as possible.
