Covid-19 Bulletin: 2

Fri 20 Mar

Dear Members

We hope that everyone is keeping well and positive. We will be coming out of this situation. Please enjoy your boats and go sailing, great for personal wellbeing!

The information below is in addition to our last bulletin, Bulletin 1.

All Club organised sailing activities on and off the water, youth events, social events and meetings are suspended with immediate effect and until further notice. There are no exceptions and the Sunday series will not be completed.

The Club safety boats will not be available for use until further notice.

The changing rooms remain open but please do not use the communal showers in the men’s changing room.

The scheduled haul out continues, please keep your distance from the yard team. If you are anticipating going into self-isolation, please advise the Club Office by phone or email and cancel any haul outs scheduled during this period.

We will be making a decision early next week about dinghies coming back to the yard and this will be communicated in our next bulletin.

We are also considering what service, if any, we might offer members who are on swinging moorings. Again, advice will follow.

All the above decisions have been taken by your Flag Officers and General Manager. We talk regularly, currently daily, using video conferencing. Your General Committee will continue to meet and function using the same method.

The Postal vote for the election of Flag Officers and General Committee members has exceeded the quorum required and I can confirm that the new Commodore, Flag Officers and General Committee Members will take up their posts on the 28th March 2020.

Stay safe, stay well; I wish you all the very best

Nye Davies
