The recent announcement by the Prime Minister that ""We need people to start working from home where they possibly can. And you should avoid travel, pubs, clubs, theatres and other such social venues" has left the Committee with no alternative to suspending all organised activities at Frensham Pond Sailing Club for the foreseeable future.
With immediate effect all dinghy racing, training, coaching, workshops, Model Yacht Group and Sailability and any other organised activities at Frensham Pond Sailing Club are postponed until further notice. Some casual sailing may be permitted on the Pond for maintaining fitness after appropriate reviews are carried out. This will be advised by an update to this notice.
This isn't a decision which was taken lightly as club sailing is instrumental in providing hundreds of youngsters and able and disabled sailors of all ages and walks of life with a sport where the encouragement of self reliance and risk assessment is at the core of what we do.
Arrangements for those booked on training courses are being reviewed over the next week or so and alternative arrangements will be put in place.
The Club will keep events and governmental guidance under review and will issue a further update as and when there are any substantive changes to this notice.
