Health & Safety information.
Carsington Sailing Club Ltd. is committed to ensuring the health and safety of its members and visitors both on and off the water.
This is achieved by the use of our Health and Safety Policy and by enforcement of the Club Rules.
Part of these policies is the requirement for all persons being required to wear personal buoyancy whilst on the water and when using the jetties.
Furthermore it is a club rule that all sailors must wear either a wetsuit/drysuit or clothing providing a similar level of protection between November 1st and April 30th. It is also recommended that appropriate clothing of a similar nature should be worn from May 1st to October 31st.
Please remember our water is over 30 metres in depth in some areas and the water temperature may be only 2 degrees celsius.
All boats are assessed for safety before being approved to sail on the lake and a comprehensive list of these is held in the office and reception area or can be viewed here.
All members and their visitors are required to notify their presence to either the Duty Officer or Club Manager a soon as they arrive on site. Remember to also say when you`re leaving, especially when the club is quiet.
