We held a further committee meeting last week to review the RYA return to sailing guidance. Whilst government guidance allows sailing to resume this is only for individuals (generally in very safe waters) rather than for organised sailing. Having reviewed the guidance we are not yet able to reopen the club and align with our own rules and government guidelines. We are undertaking detailed planning and hope to be able to return to sailing (with restrictions in place) at the earliest when the government advises we are ready to move to 'step 3' , which requires 5 conditions around virus control to be met and is not expected to be sooner than 4 July.
There is considerable planning and actions to undertake to return to sailing and we would welcome support from any members of the club who would be willing to help undertake some actions, once they have been agreed.
Additionally we are looking for new GC committee members for next year and would love to hear from anyone with a few hours to spare each month who would like to get involved in helping run the club. No experience necessary.
