Dear Finn friends,
As President of the FWM2020 Committee I am really sorry to announce that due to the situation with the coronavirus we have had to cancel the 2020 Finn World Masters in Holland.
Our Prime Minister explained in a speech on Monday that the coronavirus situation for Holland will stay critical for the coming months.
Together with the uncertain situation in the rest of Europe, but also outside Europe for our Finn friends in AUS, BRA, NZL, RSA and USA, we hope that taking the decision to cancel now will reduce to a minimum the costs for those Finn sailors already entered.
Those sailors who have already entered and paid will receive their entry fee back minus a small reduction for costs that have already been made plus the yearly fee paid to the International Masters Committee.
Those Finn sailors who did not pay their entry fee yet for our FWM2020, will receive an invoice for an administration fee, according to rules of the Master Worlds.
As a committee we had a great year and a half together in planning this event with each other. I wish to thank “my guys” for joining: Jan van der Horst / treasurer, Hans Zuurendonk / secretary, Ewout Meier / FWM2020 site, Henk de Jager, Jelte Baerends, Wietze Zetzema, Tobias Kirschbaum, Jacqueline Zuurendonk, Trees Zetzema and Chris Frijdal for their ideas and critics.
My special thanks to Robert Deaves and Andy Denison for the support they gave to our event and give to the Masters community.
Last but not least we want to send a big thank you to the management of Marina Port Zélande, Peter de Regt and Co Schot for the enormous hospitality that was offered for our FWM2020
Finn friends, sail safe, stay healthy!
See you on the water,
President Committee FWM2020
Finn Masters News - March 2020
In response to several questions directed at the Finn World Masters about the current situation, please find a note from the organisers in The Netherlands. We will try to keep you informed as much as is possible, but clearly this is an evolving situation. At the moment no changes are planned.
Also the 2020 Finn Masters Magazine has been released and is in the post. If you attended an event in the past two years and we have your address, you should be receiving a copy in the mail over the next few weeks. Copies will also be available to collect in Port Zelande, and national secretaries are invited to take a pile home for further promotion. Read it here.
MESSAGE FROM THE 2020 FWM COMMITTEE
Dear Finn Master,
The date of the Finn World Masters 2020 in Port Zélande, The Netherlands, is approaching fast. In less than three months from now we will meet and enjoy the racing in our Finns.
Although big sport events are cancelled all over the world due to the coronavirus, there is no reason yet to cancel or postpone the Finn World Masters 2020.
Of course we will closely monitor the developments of the coronavirus and the guidance of the Dutch Health Authorities - we have weekly contact with the authorities - but at this moment in time there is no reason to believe that the event cannot take place.
Since entries for the Finn World Masters 2020 are not complete until the entry fees have been paid, we have postponed the 'on time' entry fee (EUR 295.00) from April 15, 2020 to May 1st, 2020. Late entries (after May 1st, 2020) will be accepted with a 50% surcharge (EUR 442.50).
