To all FD sailors:
In regard to the upcoming Worlds and the permanent changing situation around Covid the IFDCO has the following standpoint:
As up to this moment the Championship will take place. If the situation in Spain changes in the way that the Championship is no longer possible we will inform you on the IFDCO-website as soon as possible.
Today’s situation (21-7-2021) is that Spain is coloured red but allows people to travel into the country. To do so several requiremenents do exist; so
+ You need to show proof of full vaccination at least received 14 days before you tavel to Spain
+ You have proof on paper that you have a full recovery from Covid-19; this statement must be at least 11 days old but not older than 180 days
+ You must have a negative PCR test not older than 72 hours
+ You have a negative antigene-test not older than 48 hours
+ In these cases you don’t have to go into quarantine
+ ChiIdren under the age of 12 can travel freely into Spain without any of the above mentioned documents
At the moment different countries have different status for Covid-19. For example Germany and Italy are green and the Netherlands are red.
So please check out the situation in your own country and of course also the status for your return.
We understand that some of you have difficulties with the decision weather they should go to the Worlds or not. There is a lot involved also financially.
As IFDCO we of course hope that we will all be sailing in Altea and have a great time! But of course we do not have control over this situation. If very shortly before the event travelling to Spain is not longer allowed this would be
So everybody has to take their decision for themselves and take their own responsibility in this.
We hope that we can all be there and have a great Championship!!
