Following the announcements from the Olympic Committee and World Sailing regarding the war in Ukraine, EurILCA has taken the following decisions:

Effective March 1, 2022 and until further notice, EurILCA will not accept athletes or officials from Russia or Belarus in any major EurILCA event (EurILCA Europa Cup, EurILCA Master, EurILCA Europeans) and recommends the same for other international events outside the control of EurILCA.

Furthermore, during this time EurILCA will not run any class related activities in Russia or Belarus nor cooperate with any Russian or Belarusian entity.

EurILCA is looking  forward to an immediate end to all hostilities and we hope for a time in the near future when we can compete again together.

EurILCA would like to stress this is announced with a heavy heart due to the extreme circumstances and hopes that all sailors remain safe and will be welcome again soon. EurILCA will continue to monitor the situation and adjust the advice as appropriate.
