On behalf of the SeaLink Magnetic Island Race Week Committee, we extend our most tropical seasons greetings to you all.
If you or your loved ones are now impacted by tightening of restrictions and border closures leading into one of the most social times of year, you are in all our thoughts.
To our Victorian friends that endured one of the toughest lockdowns for Aussies to date, your patience and resilience is admired. To those that were in the final stages of preparation for this years Sydney to Hobart, your disappointment is felt by all of us.
It has been said before that this year has been like no other. But as challenging as it may have been for us in many different ways, each Christmas also brings a glimmer of optimism about what the New Year may bring. And hopefully it will bring sunshine, laughter, and a bit of quality time with those close to us.
Looking further ahead, we are buoyed by the thought of seeing many of you in 2021. Whilst we too were beyond disappointed to cancel SMIRW 2020, we immediately commenced planning for 2021. Our registration video has been posted, and nominations will open on 01st March 2021. We are looking forward to seeing you back again. It’s really has been too long.
Please stay safe this festive season, look after yourselves and each other. We wish you a breezy and competitive 2021.
All the best,
Chair – SMIRW Committee
