CANCELLED DUE TO BIRD FLU
Sad message from Event Team on 5 April 2022:
"Good morning all,
It is with bad news that we come back to you.
The France Open Skiff 2022 will not take place. After the pandemic in 2020 and 2021, it is the avian flu which is raging on the Lac du Der, a migration zone, which forces the cancellation of the 2022 edition. The veterinary authorities in conjunction with the local political authorities have indeed prohibited any activity on the lake following the discovery of many dead birds in recent days.
Suffice to say that the entire organizing team and the host club of the event, the race committee and all the volunteers are extremely sad, while everyone was delighted to be able to meet all the participants for a new edition of the France Open skiff.
Unfortunately, this is so and we have no choice but to accept it. Despite the disappointment we all feel today, we hope that in 2023 there will be no more pandemics or bird flu to prevent us from sailing and racing on the Lac du Der.
We thank all those who were already registered (Almost 60 boats yesterday). The club will do everything to refund registrations as soon as possible. To do this, please send your RIB/bank details to the following email address ([email protected]
) so that the club can make refunds as soon as possible.
