A statement from ICF canoe sailing committee chair Philip Robin on this year's world championships;

As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty about international travel to Australia from the USA and Europe, which is likely to continue for the rest of the year, plus potential issues relating to quarantine, travel insurance and shipping containers, with some reluctance it has been decided by the ICF Sailing Committee and the Australian organisers to postpone the International Canoe Sailing World Championship planned to take place at Lake Macquarie YC, NSW Australia in December 2020/January 2021, by one year. 

The XXI World Championship will now take place at Lake Macquarie YC NSW Australia between Thursday 30 December 2021 and Saturday 8 January 2022.
