Race Programme and Duties 1st July onwards

The General Committee has decided that it is now time to re-instate a race programme with allocated duties from the start of July. This will be held under review depending on how government restrictions change so we are initially releasing the race programme and duties for July and August. The remainder of the Summer Series and the Winter Series will be released in a few weeks time.

The Club Handbook with the updated race programme and Duty Teams included is available on the website here. To access it you will need to enter the username frensham and the passcode is the gate code.

Or navigate to Info> About the Club> Members' Handbook on the Club website.

Your duty allocations will also be sent to you shortly by the DutyMan system, which you can use to request duty swaps as normal.

We are very grateful to all members who have volunteered for race and safety boat duties over the last 12 months or so. Thanks to you the Club has been able to organise racing and complete a number of race series in testing circumstances.

This is another major step forward in getting the Club back to operating on a more familiar and effective basis.

FPSC Step 2 update

As England has now moved to Step 2 of the Government's relaxation of COVID restrictions we are really pleased to confirm the following changes at the Club with effect from today, April 12th:

  1. The changing rooms and showers are now open.
    Please read the Club's guidance - if you can change at home that's great; maximum of 10 males and 8 females at any one time; socially distance; make sure the lights are on (so the ventilation fans run!); cleaning materials provided so please do your bit to keep the areas spotless; please do not leave any kit in there.
  2. General sailing is now available all day on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
    But please DO NOT launch from the slipway near the safety boat sheds whilst Sailability are operating on Thursdays; and avoid the reclaimed land and their racing area on the Pond when MYG are present on Tuesdays. Please remember both groups have vulnerabilities to manage.
  3. The Bar and Galley will re-open from Saturday 17th April.
    Counter service Saturday mornings (no alcohol). Please remember to wear a face covering and socially distance when inside the Clubhouse.

    Table-service when alcohol is being served (and hopefully you remember how we manage that).
    Food and drink must be consumed sitting down OUTSIDE max. 6 or 2 households in a group.

We are currently trying to recruit a Catering Manager. Until we succeed the Bar and Galley will be run by volunteers with restricted availability of food on Saturday mornings only.

PLEASE READ THE DETAILED GUIDANCE AVAILABLE FROM THE COVID TAB ON THE CLUB WEBISTE.

Sailing for Disabled Members

The GC is pleased to announce a return to sailing for the Club's disabled sailors from Saturday 20th February, continuing every Thursday and Saturday thereafter.

Organised sport for the disabled is permitted by the Government as a specific exemption from the current lockdown regulations because of the disproportionate impact on the health and wellbeing of disabled people. The Club has received support to organise this from both the RYA and Waverley Borough Council.

Further information is attached. It explains why this activity is important for disabled people and includes details of how the Club's disabled members can participate.

The GC shares everyone's frustration at not being able to sail at the Club but asks that non-disabled members respect the needs of our disabled members and continue to understand that the Club remains closed to them. Rest assured that we aim to open for all members at the very earliest opportunity.
