Please note: during the continuing pandemic you are asked to respect the guidance issued by the government, Dept of DCMS and the RYA; protect yourself and others by limiting any group ashore to no more than 6 persons whilst maintaining social distancing at 2m. If that is not possible a distance of at least 1m plus mitigation measures; such as wearing a face mask or covering, avoid being face to face with people outside of your household or support bubble, should be observed. Of-course regularly washing your hands or use sanitiser. The changing rooms and showers are out of commission until further notice and will be taped off, although the toilet provision is available only for single occupancy at one time. Please consider arriving at the time ready to sail if possible.
Start times for each class have been further separated to reduce grouping of dinghies on slipways and the beach and to comply with social distancing. Be prepared to move your dinghy into more space when rigging your dinghy in preparation to sail and subsequently stowing the boat after sailing.
