THE 2010 GRENADA ROUND-THE-ISLAND RACE COMMITTEE ANNOUNCES THE CANCELLATION OF THIS YEAR'S RACE EVENT

Grenada, West Indies (18 February, 2010) - Due to an unforeseen emergency, the 2010 Race Committee regretfully announces that the 2010 Grenada Round-the-Island Race event, scheduled to take place on 12-14 of March, has been cancelled. The unfortunate cancelling of this event was not a decision that was made lightly or easily. It was a decision that was necessary due solely to an internal emergency that has made it impossible for the Committee to move forward with the event as planned.

The Race Committee is grateful for all the support and involvement received thus far from the community and sponsors. Furthermore, the Committee wants to make it clear that any progress that has been made in the funding, organizing, and planning of this event will carry over to next year's race. The Grenada Round-the-Island Race has a long and rich history in the Caribbean and it will return in 2011 as the fun and exciting community event that Grenada has known and loved.

At this difficult time, the Race Committee appreciates the community's understanding and apologizes for any inconveniences this may cause. The Committee is deeply saddened by this regrettable situation and will take the necessary steps to ensure that the termination of this event is carried out with the grace and dignity it deserves.
