Postpone FAQ

It is with great disappointment that US Sailing has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2022 National Sailing Programs Symposium (NSPS) in Savannah, GA.

The postponement is out of an abundance of caution due to Covid-19 surges across the country currently and those anticipated after holiday gatherings. The decision was made in conjunction with US Sailing Leadership, current CDC recommendations and best practices utilized by similar sports and entertainment organizations throughout the US.

Our primary concern is the safety and wellbeing of attendees and participants of NSPS, and we look forward rescheduling the symposium once we return to a manageable state of public health and feel confident bringing our community together safely for one of our favorite events of the year.

No. NSPS is postponed with plans to reschedule once we return to a manageable state of public health and feel confident bringing our community together safely.
