Update Regarding COVID-19

[updated 20/07/2021]

Following the developments in Government advice about COVID-19, we are updating members on the response of the club.

The Committee of Management’s focus must be on our responsibilities to members, visitors and staff. In consultation with Sailing Committee and our COVID-19 Task Force we have decided the following:

The Club in principle returns back to normal, as all restrictions have been lifted by the UK government. However, in light of the rising case numbers we encourage members to behave responsibly and avoid anything that could facilitate transmission of the virus. Indoors we will keep tables well spaced out and ventilate rooms as much as possible; it would be useful to still observe some social distancing, eg when at the bar or in the galley queue.

These rules will be reviewed in light of experience and changes to the framework set out by the Government and RYA.

Further updates on club matters will be forthcoming as the situation evolves.
