The Government have advised us all to be conscious of potentially catching Covid-19. The majority of Club members are in the ‘at risk’ age group, being over 70 with some of us or our close family members having underlying health problems that increase the risk.
The Officers of the Club, bearing these concerns in mind, are cancelling Club Meetings at the Incinerator until further NOTICE.
With regards to sailings on Wednesdays and Sundays, the recommendations ask us to maintain a space of 1 metre (3 feet) between ourselves and another. In view of this, gatherings for coffee at the Visitor Centre are discouraged, even if the Centre remains open, which we believe is unlikely. We would also advise and suggest that as group sailing has some shortcomings in that it is easy for us to gather together by accident, we should cease formal Wednesday and Sunday activities. As we do not own or control Westport Lake, we cannot force club members to go along with our recommendations.
We all need fresh air and exercise but need to find a way to do this without impacting on our own or others health.
Keep healthy and sail free,
Best wishes from all the Committee
