One of the water sporting events those were in the way of being held in the Clipper race, 2019-20 editions. It was scheduled in March, at a time when the lockdown and quarantine started to occur. Indeed, the organizing committee had to work out travel arrangements for the crew who were quarantined in the Philippines as the lockdown occurred. It was a time when community-wide measures were being taken in the Philippines. The decision was declared on Monday, March 16th. Crew members had to be quarantined in Subic Bay of the Philippines. This was one of the enhanced quarantine community areas that they were a part of.
The race had been scheduled to begin on March 14th, Saturday. This was a subsequent phase of the race that had a course spanning from North Pacific to the shores of Seattle. The US then imposed travel restrictions widespread and it was deemed unviable to complete the race.
