IOCA is delighted that Datchet Water SC are able to host our EOS Championships and Datchet very much look forward to welcoming us.

It is obvious, but bears stating that the current pandemic has impacted on all our lives to varying degrees. IOCA (UK) welcomes the easing of regulations and guidance that allows this event to take place. Unfortunately, we will not be able to operate in our normal way. In due course we will publish the detailed procedures and guidance which will enable this event to run Covid Secure.

However, as we open for entries IOCA (UK) wishes to make competitors and support persons aware of the following principles and guidance which might affect their decision to attend:

Anyone who –

* has symptoms of coronavirus
* has tested positive for coronavirus
* lives with someone who has symptoms or has recently tested positive
* has been told to self-isolate by NHS Test & Trace
or has arrived from a country with a high coronavirus risk


At time of writing (17 Sep) Government Regulations limit gatherings to a maximum of 6 people, including children. This has almost no impact on competitors’ activity while afloat, but significantly changes things ashore.

We ask that:

* Only one adult accompanies each household’s sailors (unless the second adult is an event volunteer from the same household).
* You do not bring non-sailing children to the event.
* You do not gather in groups of more than six at any time.
* You do not share transport to the event between households:
* Vehicles containing more than six people who are not from a single household will not be permitted to enter the venue.
* You do not mingle, moving between different groups.
* You adhere to the guidance we publish which will impose measures designed to prevent actual or perceived mingling of groups and gatherings greater than six. This may include asking you to leave the site during racing activity.

* Support Vessels will NOT be permitted at the event. Coaches would be an additional adult for a household group or groups and will NOT be permitted at the event. They will NOT be permitted to man Official Vessels.

* Contact between Official Vessels and competitors will be limited.
* Competitors must be self-sufficient (water, food, adequate clothing) for a full day afloat.

As an Event Organiser IOCA (UK) now has a legal obligation to take all reasonable measures to ensure that attendees adhere to regulations. One change to our procedures will be adding additional volunteers who will be asked to help competitors and support persons remain within the regulations and guidance. We hope that you will be willing to volunteer and remain with us during the event.

Note from Selectors - Monaco Team Racing 2021
IOCA (UK) has applied to the organisers of the event for a team to participate in the 2021 event. If IOCA (UK) is successful in obtaining a team place then it would be the intention of the Selectors to invite the first 2 girls and first 2 boys from the End of Season results to make up the team of 4. These sailors must be age 12,13,14 or 15 at the date of the event. If any of these sailors decline their place the Selectors will continue down the End of Season results until a team of 2 boys and 2 girls has been selected.
