Cancellation 2020 Lancelin Ocean Classic Festival
The Lancelin Chamber of Commerce & Industry (Inc) (LCCI) takes this opportunity to inform you that the scheduled 2020 Lancelin Ocean Classic Festival has been cancelled
With a number of issues arising outside the control of the LCCI we felt that there was insufficient time and funding to resolve these issues. The LCCI did everything in their power to resolve these issues and with time against us there was no other option than to cancel the event to ensure a successful and viable event that met the requirements of our funding partners.
· After 34 years of successful events we are fully aware and understand the decision will not be favorable so we apologise to our stakeholders, sponsors, community partners, accommodation providers, sailors and the public. The LCCI will now reassess and re-evaluate their options going forward in consultation with stakeholders, industry groups and community groups.
All 2020 online registration fees will be reimbursed in full and we will work with the online registration provider to have this managed as soon as possible.
For the kite surfers who opted to leave their 2019 entry fee in credit for the 2020 and now look to seek reimbursement of $75 please contact with your address, contact number and banking details.
The Chamber will endeavour to run this iconic event for 2021 pending circumstances and ensure plenty of notice is given prior to the race.
Once again please accept our sincere apologies for the short notice and for any inconvenience caused.
