Social Sailing Starting 28th July
We are pleased to start up our on-water sailing activities from Tuesday 28th July and look forwarding to seeing our sailors, safety boaters and beach masters soon. With the weather so lovely, it’s going to be great being back out on the water!
I’m sure you are up to date with all the communications regarding sailing but keep checking the Vice Commodores emails for latest news. Our sailing committee have worked extremely hard putting in place Covid Secure Safe Sailing and can now offer a happy, safe environment for you to come and enjoy. Some of the procedures may be mildly inconvenient but these are done solely for the safety of our sailors and volunteers. We thank you in advance for your flexibility and co-operation.
Latest Procedures and Advice from Steve Norman VC…
“The first on water sessions will be on Tuesday 28 July (for adult social sailing) and Friday 31 July for Junior social sailing and these sessions are now on Dutyman. Please note places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please note that ALL sailors and volunteers must sign and return the (one off) “12 commandments” form (attached again for your convenience) which confirms that you will abide by these important covid-secure procedures. In addition ALL sailors and volunteers must provide a covid-free heath declaration within 24 hour before each session. You will find the form here.
The link will also be in the Dutyman reminder email. If for any reason you cannot access the form, or do not have a printer to print and sign, then please send an email with the following text (which you can cut and paste) within 24 hours of your session:
In this way we are confident that our club is doing everything we can to reduce the risks associated with covid-19 – and thank you in advance for your support.
Please note that all sessions in July will be free of charge.
With guidance changing almost daily its difficult to keep up with the latest Government and RYA announcements. Just today, for instance, we received updated guidance from the RYA stating that from 25 July we will be able to use our changing rooms on a strictly managed basis. So by the time we are ready to get back on the water we will be able to use the changing rooms – in shifts to maintain social distancing – more of that in next Friday’s update. ”
