Organised sailing restarts from 2nd April!

In line with the change in Coronavirus restrictions, and aligned with RYA advice, organised sport activities including sailing and racing can restart from 29th March. This means that the WYC Sailing Programme will now start from Friday 2nd April for the scheduled Easter Nip, and we plan to run club racing as scheduled from this point forward!
For the scheduled racing we will stick to the rostered members for Race Officer and Assistant, however please let us know ASAP if you are down to cover a race but can no longer attend. We will draw Support Boat Drivers and Crews from the Safety Boat Team for the Easter Nip, and review Safety Boat crewing on a rolling basis. Anyone scheduled for Safety Boat crew duties for the Easter Weekend can stand down, and we will review further duties as they go.
The changing rooms and club house remain closed, so members should come to the club dressed to sail or change on the beach. The Upper Rigden’s Shed and other storage areas should not be used as a changing room.
Caution should continue to be taken when making decisions to sail to prevent on the water risk, and we ask everyone to continue to act responsibly on or off the water, following Coronavirus guidelines such as social distancing, mask wearing and hand sanitiser. We would also recommend that everyone visiting the club should be symptom-free tested regularly to protect yourselves and others.
See you at the club soon!
