Welcome

 

ON THIS WEEK

Dear members,

In line with RYA and government guidance, the clubhouse will remain closed and there will be no organised sailing or social activities until further notice.

As we have seen, from Wednesday 13th May, people can go out on the water.

However all club equipment and facilities including showers, changing facilities, boats, safety equipment, buoyancy aids & wetsuits etc. remain out of bounds until further notice.

Members with their own boats and safety equipment are free to use them.

We will be installing two hand sanitiser dispensers in the boat park and there will be a cleaning solution near the hose for those that need to use it.

Anyone visiting the boat park should maintain social distancing, minimise time near others, and minimise contact with any surfaces touched.

Please take personal responsibility for your own safety and other members of the club by using hand sanitiser, wearing disposable gloves and/or wiping down the surfaces you touch where-ever possible.

Club members should keep abreast of the latest govt guidelines & if any symptoms of covid19 are experienced to stay away & inform the club immediately

If you go onto the water, you do so at your own risk. Please ensure all equipment used is seaworthy and you sail safely and in conditions well within your own competence and abilities. Please respect and follow Government, RYA and RNLI guidelines.
