The J/111 Class Association, its owners and the Royal Ocean Racing Club in Cowes United Kingdom have determined, because of the varying levels of infection and disruption across the world, to cancel the 2020 J/111 World Championship originally scheduled for September. The Executive Committee has been closely monitoring the worldwide developments in the COVID-19 pandemic. They understand the huge commitment of time and money it takes to participate in a major Championship, as well as the enormous resources that our host clubs dedicate to such events. Simon Bamford, Class Captain of the J/111 North European Fleet, said, "A big thank you to everyone who helped organise the J/111 2020 Worlds. Special mentions to Simon Grier-Jones who put many hours of work into it and to Steve Cole and RORC for their professionalism and support. Best wishes to all of you and looking forward to meeting whenever we can get back onto the water."
