With the COVID-19 pandemic as the most pressing health and safety concern for our communities, competitors, coaches, supporters, volunteers, and all those involved in College Sailing, we believe that certain updates to how we operate as a conference are in order. Please find attached a list of requirements and recommendations for competition in SAISA events during the 2020-2021 season. We believe these are not burdensome and where financial impacts are applicable, the conference is dedicating resources to minimize the impact on our college and university programs.
Download the full SAISA Conference COVID-19 Operational Guidelines for 2020-2021 here.
We also expect an announcement from the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) in response to COVID-19 with detailed reporting processes for ICSA events. Current ICSA Medical Guidance for Competition is online here. More ICSA COVID-19 resources are online: https://collegesailing.org/about/covid-19-info
Please reach out if you have questions or concerns, or if you may need help talking with your university or college administration about the spring season.
