The organizers of “ODM” have taken the painful decision to cancel the regatta.

An extensive algae bloom, “red tide” is present in South Sarasota Bay.  Such blooms are characterized by a gaseous emission leading to coughing, and reduction of oxygen in the water leading to fish kills.  Both effects are abundantly present in the immediate area of Sarasota Sailing Squadron.   There is a forecast of lengthy continuation of this situation.

Several local sailing events have also been cancelled in the lead up to the ODM decision.

The ODM organizers are, of course, saddened by the need to take this drastic step, and hope notice directly to registered participants, and this notice we hope you will disseminate, has issued sufficiently in advance such that expenses can be eliminated, and refunds for travel and accommodation will be forthcoming.

Thank you.
