In line with the RYA’s latest guidance, ‘RYA guidance on sailing and racing with participants from different households during the Covid-19 in England’, as previously issued, it will be the skipper’s decision whether to use a yachts spinnaker during this series, bearing in mind the possible reduced number of crew and mitigating measures necessary when ‘Social Distancing’ is reduced to less than 2 metres. It is also the responsibility of the skipper to inform their crew of the latest RYA guidance and discuss the actions necessary to reduce the spread of the Covid-19 virus, whilst afloat, ashore and transferring from one to the other.
The Covid 19 advice as previously issued by this sailing club still applies.
