A NOTICE TO COMPETITORS FROM HOBIE ON COVID-19

Apr 16, 2020 | News

NOTICE TO COMPETITORS – UPDATE APRIL 16, 2020

HOBIE FISHING EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP 2020, Italy, September 11 – 13

As Covid-19 conditions evolve, we are monitoring the situation every day and watching closely the various world health organizations, national and regional guidelines. We want to be clear – your health and safety and everyone in our recreational fishing family are first and foremost in our decision-making process.

Other important considerations that can still affect the running of the event are shipping & transport, international travel and the economy. While most shipping routes are open, some regions within Europe have or could have border restrictions for road transport. International flights are unknown at this stage and with the economy being affected this may have an impact on angler’s ability to attend the event.

HFE7 Additional Review Date 

We are going to extend the review date for the September event to May 20 and at that time provide competitors with the final status of the event for 2020.  If the situation changes, before May 20th, we will let everyone know immediately.

Travel Plans 

We strongly suggest that you wait until the final confirmation of the event dates before making travel arrangements. Hobie Kayak Europe and or Hobie Cat Company will not accept any liability for financial loss due to changes to the location, venue, dates and or times.
