Dear Club Member,
I’m delighted to see signs of normality starting to emerge at the club following the NI Executive’s relaxation of restrictions as we move towards a recovery: https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/articles/coronavirus-recovery-plan
Since the club grounds re-opened on 20th May we have seen sensible socially distanced activities resuming; windsurfing has returned, we’ve had the launch of both keel and motor boats and even some spirited singlehanded GP sailing.
Onshore, your committee has made great progress with grounds maintenance, highlights being restoration of the jetty and preparations for extension to the rock armour and re-stoning of the car park. In preparation for a further resumption of activity, the mast of the club yacht (a Sadler 25) has been stepped and within a matter of days she should be sitting on her new mooring, which was laid just before the lockdown.
I’m pleased that, as we move towards normality, we can now make club boats and windsurfing equipment available for members’ use, subject to the attached protocols, which must be strictly observed.
At this point access to club buildings continues to be restricted to the windsurfing store, the green shed and the male and female toilets, per protocols previously communicated. The clubhouse remains closed until further notice and the showers should not be used. gather only in groups of no more than 6. Please respect others.
Your Trustees and Committee continue to monitor the advice from Government, RYA and ISA and will continue to keep you updated. Should you have any queries or concerns regarding this notice, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
