The 2022 National Sailing Programs Symposium (NSPS) has been postponed after being planned for January 27-29 in Savannah, GA.
As the premiere event for sailing education in the United States, the ruling was due to an abundance of caution as COVID-19 surges across the USA currently and those anticipated after holiday gatherings.
The decision was made in conjunction with US Sailing Leadership, current CDC recommendations, and best practices utilized by similar sports and entertainment organizations throughout the US.
This is the second postponement for NSPS which was originally scheduled for January 28-30, 2021. The decision for the first postponement to 2022 was due to expected COVID-19 restrictions for hosting large events and travel limitations.
“Our primary concern is the safety and wellbeing of attendees and participants of NSPS,” said US Sailing in a statement. “We look forward rescheduling the symposium once we return to a manageable state of public health and feel confident bringing our community together safely for one of our favorite events of the year.”
NSPS brings together program directors, instructors, volunteers, parents and industry representatives to share and learn best practices with one another about running, maintaining and improving sailing programs.
The intention is to reschedule the in-person event rather than hold virtually. For additional information, click here.
