World Cruising Club has regretfully announced that due to ongoing international concerns against holding public gatherings and restrictions imposed for travellers relating to the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the upcoming Ocean Cruising Seminars due to be held in London (14-15 March), Oslo (21-22 March) and Annapolis (28-29 March) have been postponed. Registered delegates have been contacted and an update will be issued in the coming weeks regarding the rescheduling of the seminar.
We know this will be a disappointment to those who had planned to join these popular events, however the health and welfare of those attending is our primary concern. Our Ocean Cruising Seminars are planned as a social opportunity to get to know fellow cruising sailors, and gain knowledge from a wealth of experts through conversations and presentations. In light of government guidance and concerns over social gatherings, particularly those involving an international audience, we took the difficult decision that in the current circumstances the seminars would not be delivered in a comfortable atmosphere that would inspire and encourage ocean sailing aspirations.
World Cruising Club Seminars are supported by lecturers and Corporate Members all seeking to support preparations for ocean sailors and they will be happy to be contacted for advice or guidance.
