No Worlds 2021…

but we will be sailing in La Rochelle!

Despite our hopes, the Covid pandemia has not declined enough to date. There are still too many government restrictions to travel to (or from) France for some countries. We do not expect that these restrictions will be lifted shortly. Running the Worlds now would be unfair for those who cannot travel. 
But we do not have to cancel the event. Many participants and families have plans, or dreams, or even bookings to travel to La Rochelle.

The good news is that the french authorities and Afidart confirm they can organise a big Dart international event, which will look very similar, yet not leading to a World Champion title. We are pleased to rename the event in The Dart 18 Gold Cup – La Rochelle – July 24th to July 30th 2021.

So there will be a chance this year to race and meet the international Dart friends for all those who can eventually travel to France.

Angelique and the AFIDART-team are highly motivated to host you all. They will communicate all details for Gold Cup shortly.

Stay tuned and keep safe

Worlds 2020 – Update

Dear Dart friend,

In view of the present massive global trouble, we first want to assure you of our sympathy for what can affect you and your relatives. We wish you all the best.

Talking now about our small Dart Worlds project might look obsolete; but we have to communicate. It is obvious that this crisis has a major impact on the overall viability of the project. As the situation changes rapidly every day, it is far too early to confirm or cancel the Worlds. We shall follow the rules and recommendations as given by the official authorities.

Nevertheless we are still counting on your support to confirm your entry normally, as the entry list could be key to the future of your championship. The first early bird deadline on march 25th is still valid.

If the event had to be cancelled or postponed, we commit to refund your entry fee.

More information will follow when appropriate. Our ultimate decision date is may 15th.

Meanwhile, take all good care of yourselves !
