Covid- 19 Update 9th July 2020

Changes to racing this week-end  Race Sign-On Sheets Now Available

In light of the updated guidance from the RYA this week we are pleased to announce that the restrictions on the number of boats sailing and entering racing are being lifted this weekend. It still remains paramount that whilst you are on-shore that the government guidance on social distancing, group sizes and gatherings are strictly adhered to.

The plan for this weekend is as follows:

Saturday morning: a youth specific session with three short races (first start 10:30).

Updates have been made to the Stage 2 documents in light of these changes - see below in red.

We will be looking to evolve the race programme over the coming weeks via the Race Committee in light of the improved guidance from the RYA.

Activity is also progressing to re-introduce some training and Sailability provision in the next couple of weeks.

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
