Are we the safest sport??

Recommended Posts

Besides maybe Nascar..  Self quarantine for 1000 days even, big ass plastic/wood stuff between yourself and your competitors.  90% of the time we are 6' apart depending on conditions. 

Maybe we end up being the only Olympic sport actually run this time around.

Most of the crew are typically sat virtually on top of each other.

 

The lads on the comedy boat ditto.

 

The safety and mark boat crew on the RIBS same again.

 

Then we all cram into the bar.

 

So no.

We all need to be more into solving problems right now. (in every aspect of life)

for sailing and noting your remarks:

   -Sail solo or with family

   -Loose the committee boat, do rabbit starts

   -Have a competitor drop marks

   -Don't go to the bar

None of this is rocket science.

To the contrary. This sport has interested parties older than most. Whether organizers? Judges. Parents. Grandparents. Sponsors. 
 

it is older than most and more vulnerable to young ppl with no or minimal symptoms spreading it across generations.

Apparently a few European countries have taken their citizen's decisionmaking away on this already.

Vendee is indeed some kind of quarantine... but what if you notice the symptoms of the virus after 1 and a half weeks of sailing... (would definitely make it the toughest race!)

No one understands social distancing like the Finnish.

Add an asterisk to that. For the Sauna.

Pocket Pool is the safest sport by far.
