I wanted to update you on the current situation and the steps we have taken to reintroduce club dinghy hire.

Following on from, our last update on the 19th May it has been great to see so many members visiting the Sailing Club and following the guidelines. Over the last week just under 50% of the membership have visited the club without incident which is absolutely fantastic.

We have now put in place additional measures covering the use of club sailing dinghies and are happy that we can now reintroduce club dinghy hire having updated the guidance accordingly. If you are interesting in hiring a club dinghy then please read the Coronavirus guidance on Club Sailing Dinghies and contact the Training Officer (Will) via email - [email protected]

If you are planning on coming to the Club and have not read the Guidance then before your visit please take some time to read, and familiarize yourself with the guidance.

We want to ensure that the sailing club is a safe environment and if any members feel they can help or contribute to a safe return to sailing please contact any member of the committee.
