Frensham Pond Sailability
Accessible Sailing for All
Coronavirus Covid-19 and Sailability
We are now at what would have been the start of the Frensham Pond Sailability season, but with the Covid-19 pandemic and the social distancing/self-isolation requirements in force for the foreseeable future, we are unsure when we will be able to resume sailing.
We sincerely hope that you are all keeping well but recognise that the enforced reduction in social and sporting activities can present particular challenges to both sailors and volunteers alike. If we can, we would like to provide some form of practical support to any of our members should they be in need over the days and weeks to come. Depending on the type of support needed, this could be provided by other Sailability members or from alternative sources.
As part of the plans for our 20th Anniversary in 2021, we have been looking at a new FPS logo and a new range of clothing. These were displayed for comment at the Forum last November. The designs have now been finalised and it will be possible to order new items of clothing when we start sailing again. We will have some samples for you to look at. I have reproduced the new logo below which, while specific for Sailability, has been aligned with the main Club logo to reinforce the fact that we are an integral part of the Club. Depending on clothing colour the logo colours will be varied to ensure good visibility.
To remind you of all the good times last year, and good times still to come, Tony Machen has kindly compiled a photo album of activities at the Pond in 2019, which clearly conveys the friendly competitiveness, team spirit, and wonderful social atmosphere that we all enjoy but miss so much at the moment.
The link to the photo album is below. There are a lot of photos so you can pick and choose or you can select the slideshow option - click on any picture, then the 3-dot icon at top right of the screen selecting "Slideshow"
Please feel free to get in touch over the coming weeks about any matter. We are here to help if we can.
Wishing you well and hoping that you all keep safe
