URGENT Spinnaker Club Corona virus Update
Published 16:51 on 12 May 2020
The Management Committee and James Oborne our Chief Instructor held a virtual meeting today to discuss the latest government advice about relaxing Covid-19 restrictions.
As always Spinnaker Club wants to act in the best interests of its members, staff and the general public. With this in mind we will always follow NHS and Government advice.
We are pleased that the new regulations acknowledge the benefits of outside activity and exercise.
As of 10 o'clock Wednesday 13th May the Club will be reopening to allow individuals to go sailing in their own boats, either single handed or with members of their family unit. There will be no racing, training or catering at this stage and the Club's boats will not be available for hire.
The combination locks to the gates are being reinstated today with the previouscode. The code to the Clubhouse remains the same.
Please either arrive dressed to sail or change discretely in the carparks or your vehicle. Do not change in the clubhouse.
The lavatories and hand basins will be accessible but please do not use the changing facilities or showers.Also a maximum of 2 people can use each changing room any one time. Please use the hand gel in the lobby on entering the building or wash your hands thoroughly.
Club staff and committee members may be seen in the club house on club business, please do not enter the main area even if others are using it.
There will be no safety cover, all sailing is at your own risk. Please take the time to look at James' Safety video on Facebook/Youtube from tonight, and his boat maintenance checks video which will be available from Thursday.
Do not attend the Club if you or anyone else in your household has symptoms of Covid-19 or you are quarantined following a contact. Do not attend the Club if you are in a high risk or shielded group.
Maintain two metre social distancing advice.
We hope that the next phase of the lock down relaxation will allow us to reintroduce racing and training at the Club. We are making active plans so that we can restart at the earliest opportunity, but obviously we are dependent on Government advice and even this limited relaxation may be reversed if Covid numbers start rising again.
Do enjoy your return to Spinnaker but in the government's own words "Stay alert."
