'.. I HAVE spent every New Year since 1989 in Hastings, and I have often wondered: "What would I do if the chess congress were not to be held?" ..'


'After due deliberation by the Chairman, organisers and sponsors, it is with great regret that we confirm the Caplin Hastings International Chess Congress 2020-2021 will not take place. In view of the increase in the spread of Covid-19, it has been decided that the risk involved in holding the event would be high, and the risk of last-minute cancellation equally high. Although several alternative formats were considered, to comply with social distancing, it was agreed that neither sponsors nor organisers would wish to risk the chance of any player contracting the virus.

It was with great reluctance that the decision was taken, as this would have been the centenary of the event in its present form. However, we shall postpone and not cancel the centenary celebrations, which we intend will take place next year.'
