The notation [C-19] means that due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus disease (Covid-19) additional rules apply for this event to protect the health of both the participants and officials. We urge everyone to read the NOR and Sailing instructions carefully and to adhere strictly to the rules. Exceptions shall not be accepted. It is in our general interest to put aside our "pre-corona habits" and adjust them to the current situation of controlling the spread of the virus and the disease. The team of the Royal North Sea Yacht Club and the Race Officials will do everything possible to make it a fantastic event for you, but this will only work with mutual respect, cooperation and commitment. As we use to a large extent a popular beach and boulevards in Ostend during the touristic season, we insist to strict adherence to the guidelines given by the club and its volunteers regarding parking, movement to and from the beach, use of water hoses, etc.… This is of utmost importance. The fact that the Mayor of Ostend has given permission to hold this Euro Master and Europa cup event is a great honour and we as sailors and organizers must give absolute priority to adhere to all relevant measures. Give respect and space to tourists spending their holidays in Ostend. We would like to thank you in advance for respecting the applicable rules during the event for hand hygiene, social distancing and the wearing of face masks. ‘[DP]’ in a rule in this NoR means that the penalty for a breach of that rule may, at the discretion of the protest committee, be less than disqualification. ‘[NP]’ means a breach for that rule will not be grounds for a protest by a boat.
