Club Reoping – Phase 3

posted in: News | 0

It has been great to see so many members benefit from the changes we have recently introduced allowing double-handed sailors to use club boats for free, members’ households to use our facilities and our SUP boards available free. Double-handed sailors please be aware that we have a range of boats to suit different sizes and abilities.

With the next phase of the government’s easing of lockdown on Saturday 4th July it is exciting that we will now be opening the wet bar and bar with restricted options and hours for takeaway and limited table service. The team have worked hard to allow us to do this according to the government guidelines and it is important that members continue to respect those guidelines to allow us to do this. Equally well, we are aware that some members will have concerns about using these facilities at the current time – that’s fine, there is absolutely no compulsion to do so.

We will also be introducing limited RYA Courses again (in groups of 6 including the instructor) so that we can offer a much reduced version of our summer holidays training programme.

The situation as from 4th July is summarised in the poster below. The road map and risk assessment have also been updated and can be seen here:

While it is great that we have been able to expand our offering for members in this way, we do need to remember that this is only possible if members’ following the guidance. In particular, please remember:

– Social gatherings are limited to 6 people or 2 households

– Keep 2 metres apart from people outside your household / bubble

– Do not use the changing rooms for changing in (this is a legal requirement, not just what we are asking you to do.

If you have any questions on this, please do not hesitate to speak to Dave, the Club Manager, or contact the Committee via the office.
