Update as of 9th September 2020
As you will have seen the club is now pretty much back up and running as well as we can under the current restrictions. We have independent cruising, limited racing for dinghies and yachts on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and reasonable club/bar opening hours in place.
The Administrator is still working from home at the moment and I’m afraid that the showers and changing facilities will remain out of action.
Cadet sailing, supported in the normal way, started at the end of July with two sessions being held every week on Mondays and Fridays. Catering has re-commenced; food is now available after racing on Thursday evenings as usual and Sunday lunches, ever popular, are up and running again.”
Update 21 – Re-imposition of Gathering Regulation
Heads Up for rule strengthening coming our way on Monday 14th September. As I expect you are aware, the Government is re-introducing a maximum of 6 persons for social gathering for both inside and outside, from this coming Monday. This time the regulation is enforceable by £100 fines; so to make that effective the Government will introduce snap inspections so we must make sure that we are following all the rules at all times.
The use of the clubhouse for drinking, eating, and socialising will remain largely unchanged but you must ensure that you do not form groups of more than six persons either inside the club or outside. Please also continue to observe the procedures put in place when the club was opened and in particular remember to stick to the 2 metre distancing rule.
Sailing, racing and cadet training will also continue largely as before but the six persons rule must be strictly observed when ashore before and after sailing. We will look at improvements that may be necessary in getting dinghies afloat for racing and some adjustments may be necessary to cadet training.
We will make small alterations to the sailing and club risk assessments.
Test negative & stay positive
