Safety Advice for Free Sailing and Water Sports - Reminder

Members and visitors who want to take to the water while there is no organised sailing or club safety cover are reminded that they should always respect and follow Government and RNLI guidelines, and WYC safety advice for free sailing and watersports. Always check the weather forecast before you go out, and make sure that you are prepared for a significant drop in the wind as well as an increase!
As a reminder, the club remains closed, and there are no organised sailing or social activities. The WYC General Committee sub-group are having regular virtual meetings and working on plans to restart organised activities and re-open the club when further restrictions are lifted. We are following the guidance of the RYA, RNLI and the Government. Members now have access to the external storage areas (Upper Rigden’s and Stroud sheds), but should maintain social distancing, minimise time inside, and the surfaces you touch. Please take personal responsibility by using hand sanitiser, wearing disposable gloves and/or wiping down the surfaces you touch where-ever possible.
If you go onto the water, you do so at your own risk.
