Hours ago, a new commandment from the Minister of Youth and Sports Krasen Kralev – № RD-09-327 / 11.04.2020, was published on the website of the Bulgarian Sailing Federation.
It calls for an extension of the ban until May 13, 2020, for holding any mass events, including sports, cultural and leisure activities and science.
Answering this, in the later hours of the day the organizers of the Regatta Odessos Generali Cup 2020 responded with a notice of cancellation of the regatta, which was to take place between May 29th and 31st, 2020 …..
Because of the current situation and the unclear prospect of an end to the state of emergency in the country, we inform you that the Regatta Odessos Generali Cup 2020 will not take place!
Our desire and style of work have always been focused on the quality fulfillment of our commitments, which will not be possible in the short term for organizing the planned regatta in such a way that we will be able to provide you with perfect conditions for competition and social events.
With the idea of demonstrating that we are all in this together, we address all of you with the following suggestion:
Immediately after the end of the state of emergency in the country, to start a chain of informal races in the Gulf of Varna over the weekends, with a common effort, which we believe has the potential to become the championship of 2020, regardless of when it will be started. The idea is to work together to create the best possible way to have fun and practice our favorite sport, despite everything! Let’s use the time we can’t float to generate ideas for organizing this initiative.
We look forward to receiving your feedback and sharing our specific ideas. “
