I hope all is well and that you are safe wherever you are in the world. At the start of the year, like most of you, I was eager and ready for an epic year on the water. But now, I believe we can all agree this is not happening.
We are all in an unprecedented situation, and these are extraordinary times. This is not only a challenge, but also an opportunity for everyone in our community to rise above adversity, working together.
IWWF is concerned for the personal safety of all participants in our sport, and also the safety of the wider community. We must also remember we have a social responsibility to all those around us. This is a global pandemic of which we are just a small part.
Please follow your government’s guidance and the regulations they have formulated to beat the coronavirus. It’s now clear we should put all international events such as world championships on hold until this goal is reached.
Until we are all on the water again, please stay safe, stay healthy and be good to one another.
Remember that the time we spend apart now will ensure that when we get together again, no one will be missing.
