COVID-19 and Sailing

You will be aware of the Prime Minister's announcement that from Thursday 5th November until Wednesday 2nd December, the Government is taking the following action:

  1. Requiring people to stay at home, except for specific purposes.
  2. Preventing gathering with people you do not live with, except for specific purposes.
  3. Closing certain businesses and venues.

The Club has issued the following Statement

Following the latest Government restrictions relating to indoor and outdoor leisure facilities, the clubhouse and club grounds, including the car park, will be closed from Thursday 5th November until the government confirms the lockdown has been lifted.

Please be advised that visits to the Club grounds/boat park areas can only be undertaken to check on the safety of craft. There must be no other visits to work on boats.

Be assured that as soon as we are able to lift these restrictions, we will do so. In the meantime, please do not visit the Club, follow the Government guidelines and look after yourself and your families.

By respecting the Government guidelines and adhering to the lockdown regulations, when this is over and we can meet again – there will be no-one missing.

Covid Committee.
