The Bol d’Or Mirabaud is Confirmed, on June 12-13, 2021

It’s official: the Bol d’Or Mirabaud, the world’s primary lake regatta, will take place as initially planned on June 12-13, 2021, without limitations as to the number of participants, but with strict health measures designed to protect all participants from COVID-19.

“We are delighted to have obtained official authorization from the canton following intense discussions at all levels since the April 15 announcements,” specifies Rodolphe Gautier, president of the organizing committee. “After canceling the 2020 edition, we were absolutely committed to organizing this year’s Bol d’Or Mirabaud. My sincere thanks to the cantonal authorities for their confidence. The success of our event will depend on participants whom I ask to strictly follow the rules.”The Bol d’Or Mirabaud is Confirmed, on June 12-13, 2021The Bol d’Or Mirabaud is Confirmed, on June 12-13, 2021

No festivities on land
French territory is excluded from the racecourse
The race will close an hour later to account for the lengthened racecourse
Discounted early registration pricing is extended for the entire registration period, through June 6, 2021
The Société Nautique de Genève won’t be open to the public this year and all measures will be taken to avoid public gathering. Therefore, there won’t be an opening ceremony or welcome cocktail and race material distribution will take place over three days with pickup times assigned in advance. The same applies to launching boats. The clubhouse, locker rooms and showers won’t be accessible to competitors. The weather briefing will be provided online.

The prize ceremony will take place outdoors in an enclosed setting, with only one representative per winning crew. It will be retransmitted online.

“These measures, although restrictive, will be strictly applied,” specifies again Rodolphe Gautier. “The festive and social aspects of the event will be sacrificed, but we don’t have a choice. We’ll be going back to the basics, that is a great regatta. I’m nonetheless convinced that all the competitors will be glad to get back out on the water in what nonetheless remains a great lake festival and an encouraging omen for all outdoor event organizers.”
