We are all aware through numerous media channels about the rapidly changing situation with Coronavirus. On Monday this week HM Government issued new guidance, in particular on social distancing. In the light of this we are all instigating the procedures set out to protect all parties whilst at the same time endeavouring to keep the waters open for casual sailing, in part as a release from being cooped up at home!
In formulating these procedures, clubs have taken into account the guidance from HM Government and from the RYA. We are also aware of what is happening at many Clubs, and in other sports. The actions we are taking are designed to ensure that you Club and its members play their part in protecting the health of the population of the country as a whole, in line with Government guidelines, but beyond that in finding what we judge is the best balance to protect the well-being, both physical and mental, of our club's members, staff and others with whom they come into contact.
At the moment, we are still allowed out to play, and social sailing is still allowed in many clubs as long as precautions are taken. Remember - self isolation is what the 'A' Cat was born for! Please stay safe, wash your hands as though you have just shaken hands with (insert choice of favourite National leader here).. and keep in touch with everyone.
See you on the other side! 🤞🍻
