Use of Changing Rooms

THE CHANGING ROOMS WILL PARTIALLY RE-OPEN FROM SATURDAY 6THSEPTEMBER 2020. THE CLUB IS TAKING ALL REASONABLE STEPS TO MINIMISE THE RISK OF INFECTION TRANSMISSION BASED ON THE GOVERNMENT’S GUIDELINES FOR SPORTS FACILITIES AND THE RYA’S SPECIFIC ADVICE. HOWEVER, IT REMAINS THE POSITION THAT MEMBERS MUST UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE THE RISK FROM PATHOGENS INHERENT IN THEIR USE OF THE CLUB’S FACILITIES.

IN ORDER TO MAKE THIS WORK AND TO AVOID HAVING TO CLOSE THE CHANGING ROOMS AGAIN, PLEASE TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND ABIDE BY THE FOLLOWING ADVICE :

  • PLEASE CONTINUE TO ARRIVE AT THE CLUB IN SAILING KIT OR CHANGE IN THE CLUB GROUNDS AS FAR AS POSSIBLE. IF YOU CAN GO HOME WITHOUT USING THE CHANGING ROOMS AS WELL – GREAT!
  • MAXIMUM CAPACITY IN CHANGING AREAS AND SHOWERS IS :
    8 FEMALES                   10 MALES
  • IF YOU FIND THEY ARE FULL THEN PLEASE LEAVE IMMEDIATELY AND WAIT OUTSIDE, WELL AWAY FROM THE ENTRANCE AREA / RAMP. OR TRY AGAIN LATER.
  • IN ADDITION PEOPLE NOT GETTING CHANGED MAY ACCESS THE TOILETS.
  • PLEASE KEEP TO THE MARKED WALKWAYS WHEN ENTERING AND LEAVING.
  • PLEASE MAINTAIN 2M DISTANCING FROM OTHER PEOPLE CHANGING.
  • PLEASE BE AS QUICK AS POSSIBLE - NO FAFFING AND NO CHATTING!
  • CONSIDER REMOVING BUOYANCY AND WATERPROOFS OUTSIDE – IT REDUCES TIME IN THE CHANGING ROOMS AND MAKES FOR LESS MESS AND EASIER CLEANING.
  • PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE ANY KIT BAGS IN THE CHANGING ROOMS – THEY MUST BE RETURNED TO YOUR VEHICLES WHEN YOU HAVE CHANGED.
  • PLEASE GIVE PRIORITY TO PEOPLE COMING OFF THE WATER.
  • PLEASE LEAVE THE AREA YOU USE CLEAN – WIPES AND DISINFECTANT ARE PROVIDED.
  • PARENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MONITORING THEIR CHILDREN’S USE OF THE FACILITIES.

ABOVE ALL PLEASE BE RESPONSIBLE, PLEASE BE PATIENT AND
PLEASE ACT WITH CONSIDERATION FOR OTHERS.

ISSUED BY THE GENERAL COMMITTEE 4 SEPT. 2020

 

Racing 5th & 6th September

The first interim race series finished last weekend. We are starting this weekend a second interim race series to take us up to the end of October, which is traditionally when our Summer Series would end and we transition to the Winter Series. We are largely continuing as we were, but with a few refinements that reflect and build upon the successful levels of participation. There are a numbers of issues to be resolved before the exact race programme, including the number of races to qualify, can be confirmed and this will follow in the next week or so. Items in planning for September and October include:

  • A Tera Open Meeting (with no club racing or general sailing on that day);
  • A Club Trophy day;
  • A Wednesday afternoon series;
  • Moving to a split morning and afternoon sessions for Class Racing on Sunday.

Please ensure you sign on before the race. This is also our record of who was present at the club during the racing session. Please register your attendance on site during racing sessions even if you are not racing, please use the ‘Additional Attendance’ tab.

 

Saturday afternoon: pursuit race (first start 14:00) with no limits on entry numbers.

If you wish to be included in the youth training and have not yet been emailed, please contact Iain or Sean as appropriate. 

Wednesday Afternoon Racing Proposal

We are looking at a proposal to run racing on Wednesday afternoon now that the daylight hours prevents racing in the evening, and many people are working more flexibly from home. To understand whether it is feasible to run a series starting in September we are are looking to determine the number of members who would be interested in competing and volunteering to run the racing. If you are interested I'd be grateful if you would indicate so in the sheet at the link below so we can gauge the level of interest.

The start time for the race will be 2pm.
