Next Paper Tiger Catamaran International Championships

Due to COVID-19, the PTCIA has made the decision to postpone the 2021 International Championships.  The committee has decided the following criteria when to hold the next International Championships:

  • No border restrictions (both Australia and New Zealand international borders as well as borders between states in Australia)
  • No quarantine requirements in either country
  • No social distancing requirements


The timeframe to re-assess the viability for the next competition (desirably in 2022) is:

  • Early discussion and initial assessment Easter 2021
  • Final assessment in early July 2021


Rational: We (PTCIA, APTCA and NZPTOA) should not expect competitors to quantantine due to cost, lost time, and lost income. We need to ensure that we get the best skippers, not just those who want to risk travel. We must ensure that all competitors are safe according to New Zealand and Australian government advice.
