For safety reasons, all Teams must stay at one of the OC official hotels where the Covid-19 Plan is applied. Therefore, all accommodation bookings must be made only through the OC. This will ensure that all participants follow the same protocols and routine.

The OC will ask hotels to reserve additional rooms in case it is necessary to isolate any guests tested positive for Covid-19 or have Covid-19 symptoms.

Where it is not possible to accommodate one Team per hotel, in large hotels or with small Teams, all measures will be taken to ensure that the hotels observe the current provisions required by the Italian Health Authority.

Athletes from the same crew should share the same room avoiding sharing with athletes from different crews.

Please complete the Accommodation Booking request form available here or contact us for further information.
