As a Model Club, we have a responsibility to provide information to enable both members, visitors and the general public to keep as safe as possible whilst we are sailing and following our hobby. We have been on lockdown in line with the Governments instructions to play our part in reducing and preventing the spread of Covid 19 amongst our members and the general public. The Government announced this week that free access is given to our parks and encouraged people to venture out for exercise as many times as they would like from Wednesday 13th May providing the 2 metre separation and a maximum of 6 people in a group is maintained.
Model Club members may feel that this allows them, in line with the freeing up of certain sporting activities, to re-commence sailing at Westport Lake. The Committee doesn’t believe this separation and a minimum number of people gathering together can be safely achieved and therefore DO NOT wish to encourage or approve of its members returning to the lakeside at this time.
No doubt, with the continued reduction in hospital admissions that the NHS is reported to have seen, the situation will improve for us. Hopefully in the not too distant future.’
