Phase 1 relaxes rules on watersports from 29th May. The ELYC covid team have reviewed government guidelines and RYA guidance and created our club policy as we enter Phase 1.
Phase 1 can be summarised as:
Club sailing is a group exercise and not allowed or appropriate in Phase 1.
Individual sailing is allowed and appropriate. You may only sail on your own or with members of your household as crew.
Sailing in a buddy system is recommended for safety while maintaining distance.
The club will provide guidance to experienced sailors on how to sail as individuals safely and with respect.
The granary and sunlounge may be used to access personal equipment.
The club house will remain closed.
Club RIBs may not be used in any circumstances. If you see an emergency on the water, call the coastguard.
Please review the club Covid response plan, found here.
