Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, April 2, 2020 - The Hydroplane Regatta League (HRL), presented by Reliable Diamond Tool, announces that its first event of the season in Cambridge, Maryland is postponed.

COVID-19

Due to the impact of COVID-19 on the population, the league, in conjunction with the organization, made the decision to postpone the event in Cambridge, MD. “We are working with the HRL to move the event to a later date if the situation permits at the time,” said promoter Tom Thompson.“In the current situation, it is very difficult to predict the return to a certain normality. Teams must cancel hotel rooms or airline tickets without financial penalties. It is also difficult to obtain certain parts necessary for the preparation of the engines. Added to this are the financial and planning challenges as well as the travel restrictions underlines the league. We are assessing the situation very closely and hope to be able to present the 2020 season insofar as people’s safety will not be jeopardized by the virus, said HRL commissioner Didier-Bernard Séguin ”.
