Coronavirus update - Impact of latest restrictions on sailing

The latest guidance from the RYA and Sport England is that sailing, windsurfing and other watersports are permitted under the current lockdown restrictions, so long as you’re doing so:

  • on your own; 
  • with the people you live with (your household); 
  • with your support bubble; or  
  • on your own and with one person from another household. 

However, based on current guidance, as of 5th November all racing and supported sailing is cancelled until further notice. The club will not be able to provide support cover, and the club house, changing rooms and toilets are now closed until further notice. If you go onto the water, you do so at your own risk. All members should take notice and follow current government advice and restrictions and ensure that they follow Safety Advice for Free Sailing and Watersports (http://www.wyc.org.uk/members/Safety_Advice) if they go on the water.
