Volunteers Step Forward Please- We need you to help run races

 

We are looking for volunteers to assist the Race Officer on the Saturday afternoon, Sunday afternoon and Wednesday evening races. This is to provide assistance in tracking the progress of the boats around the course and capturing the finishing order, with no requirement for you to enter the Race Box.

If you are willing to volunteer for the Assistant Race Officer role please add your name to the list at the link below.

Covid- 19 Update 20th July 2020

Wednesday Evening racing this week, and until the end of August.

We are starting a short Wednesday Evening series, starting this Wednesday. This will be a pursuit race, like Saturday afternoon, with the first start at 18:45 and the race scheduled to finish just after 20:00. This will be a six race series (until the end of August), with 4 races to count and average points redress available to the Duty Teams.

The Race Committee reserves the right to amend or withdraw these race series, depending upon how the implementation goes. This is also dependent on sailors abiding to the ethos of more relaxed and conservative racing that is at the heart of the Stage 2 plan, which includes a more relaxed approach to taking or enforcing rights of way and avoiding shouting where possible.

Finally, if you are going to be on site but not racing would you record this on the signing on sheet under the Additional Attendance tab.

 
Regards, Ian.

  

Covid- 19 Update 4th July 2020

Changes to the Stage 2 plan

I hope that you are all safe and well and where possible taking advantage of the  opportunities to get back on the water. This weekend we enter a new phase of the slow return to normality and, while we are still working on the next three stages of our “ Get back to Safe sailing” Plan- Sailability, Training and Coaching and Double handed sailing, I wanted to update you as follows-

  • Thanks  to  the Estates team (Neil and Catherine Holden, John McGuinness and Kevin Marshall) the changing room redecoration has been completed including new heaters and a full clean and disinfect. The hand dryers are currently de-commissioned in accordance with government regulations. Supplies of hand towels are available.
  • The changing rooms are now open for access to the toilets and Neil has designed a one way system for you all to follow. I know restrictions are being eased but please follow the system and be wary at the pinch points. The Accessible toilet should now only be used by our disabled members.
  • Please do not use the changing rooms apart from access to the toilets. Continue to come to the club changed or change discreetly in your cars. The showers are not in use.
  • The changing rooms and toilets will be cleaned three times a week by Bourne Cleaning.
  • The clubhouse, workshops, training rooms and office are open for access only by keyholders

The Stage 1 General Sailing and the Stage 2 Limited Racing are going well and no major changes are planned for these at this time. In view of the reduction in social distancing we have revised the Plan and will remove the requirement for only one boat to be on each jetty at one time.  But please keep to the one metre plus rule in launching and recovery and advise  GC members of any issues. 

The Clubhouse, galley and bar remain closed and we have no immediate intention of reopening these at this time. We are however arranging for the terrace canopy to be erected to provide sheltered outside space for non-sailors. This  will be done over the coming week

The Club Manager remains on furlough. All emails to the Office are being monitored by the Rear Commodore and I am pleased to say that we continue to attract new members

The next  Virtual General Committee meeting  will take place on Tuesday evening and I will update you on any key decisions in the next Commodores Newsletter
