Further to previous announcements regarding the temporary closure of the top club house, it has been decided to suspend all sailing and social activities until further notice. This is consistent with the escalating actions being taken by the Government over the last few days and also advice by the RYA to undertake our own risk assessment regarding potential impacts the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic on our sailing activities and on-water members.
This means that the RYA training courses (PB2 and RYA levels 1/2) and safety boat refreshers will be rescheduled, along with the rediscover sailing and improver coaching sessions. We will keep you updated on when these and the Tuesday evening racing and weekend social sailing sessions will commence.
We appreciate that many will be disappointed about this situation but our main objective must be to keep all of our sailors and volunteers as safe as possible during the coming weeks. We have much to look forward to with a couple of newly acquired boats and a refurbished fleet with some new features!. We are also continuing to apply for grants from major sporting bodies to buy additional boats over this year and next to accommodate our growing number of sailors. The safety boats have been serviced and are ready for action and the beach clubhouse has never looked so good! So we are in good shape for when the time comes to set sail again.
We will of course continue to issue news etc as and when necessary. In the meantime please do not hesitate to contact one of the officers or email us at email@example.com if you have any questions at any time.
Many thanks and keep well
