In line with the new National Lockdown in England, and RYA guidance the sailing club is now closed to all activities until the 3rd December.
Our current understanding of the situation (subject to any local restrictions) is as follows:
- Recreational boating from a public outdoor space for single households and support bubbles or with one other person (with social distancing) may be possible
- Public waterways and beaches will remain open during the lockdown
- Outdoor sports centres and amenities (which includes sailing clubs and watersports centres) will have to close
- Members may be access boats for essential checks and maintenance, or indeed to take them, however, this will be on the understanding that the individual takes personal responsibility for meeting Government guidance
The club will continue to be regularly checked, particularly as we are also monitoring the water levels.
We wish all members the best for this lockdown period, stay safe and hopefully we will be able to see activity back out on the water in early December.
