Covid 19 information

Update 30th December 2021

You will, no doubt, have heard that the Government has announced that England will move to Plan B in response to the increased transmission risk of the Omicron variant. Government guidance is that face coverings will now be legally required to be worn in: community centres (including village halls), youth centres, members’ clubs and social clubs, adventure activity centres and indoor sports stadiums etc. as of 10th Dec 21.

See this link to Government Guidance on Updated Rules on face coverings.

As a consequence, all members must wear face coverings in the Club House with immediate effect. The guidance does advise that people can remove masks to eat and drink, in hospitality settings.

We therefore request that you respect this requirement on club premises and wear a face mask inside the Club House (unless you are medically exempt).

In addition, please:
1) Maintain social distancing at the club
2) Remove all sailing bags and kit from the changing rooms before going out on the water

It is up to individuals to decide whether they wish to come down to the club for the First of the Year race. Pauline will be down.

All those attending will be expected to take a lateral flow test and have a negative result, before coming. Windows and doors in the Clubhouse will be kept open and heating turned off, so please come prepared in warm clothing.

Weather permitting, we will be putting gazebos up outside for some shelter.

Let’s now work together and keep Omicron at bay.

Martin Hart – Commodore
