As a service to our members, we will attempt to update this list with all regatta and event changes in our area, and those which may be of interest to our members, as a result of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

If you are aware of an event that has been cancelled or postponed, please make either Rear Commodore Mike Fishbaugh or  P/C Steve Harris aware of it and we will include it here.

Hang in There!  We will get through this
