Covid-19 - Information for Club Members - Updated 23.05.2020
In response to Sundays Government announcement that unlimited outdoor activity will be permitted in England, the RYA has issued guidance for Clubs that are considering a safe plan to restart their boating activity.
The guidance has been created as part of the RYAs ongoing support for affiliated clubs during the Covid19 pandemic.
The Management Committee has spent a good deal of time creating a phased recovery plan which is now available on the web site.
The plan has been created in alignment with the available guidance published by the Government, Royal Yachting Association (RYA), and Severn Trent Water (STW). We have also been observing what other sailing clubs are implementing, and where appropriate included this detail in our own plans.
- Latest Communication from the Management Committee dated 23.05.2020
- The overall plan with a phased progressive approach
- Phase 1 Member Guidance
- Phase 1 Risk assessment for members visiting the boat park
- Phase 1 Risk assessment relating to First Aid and medical emergencies
- Phase 1 Risk assessment for site toilets.
We will continue to meet regularly via video conferencing to continually review these plans. We ask for your cooperation as we move towards a phased access to the Club.
Its in all of our interests that we reopen when we are ready to facilitate safe activity with appropriate social distancing measures, hygiene procedures and risk management practices.
We thank all our members for their efforts and patience during this challenging time.
Actions taken up to date are as follows:
Ceri, Sallie, Marie, Clive and Kate are currently on temporary leave ("furlough") under the Government's Job Retention Scheme.
Debbie and Sandra have removed all perishable consumables from the fridges and freezers.
We have 24/7 monitoring on site, and this will be triggered in the event of unauthorised access to the Club premises which is being diverted a security company and our Members taking on the role of key holders during the closure period.
Key local Members of the Management Committee will regularly attend the Club site to check for any issues
The Clubhouse is now locked down and only the minimum services have been left on.
Where necessary all computer-based administration has been backed up.
Whilst the Club is closed and there are no staff available. Emails are being monitored.
All necessary day to day administration will be picked up by members of the Management Committee.
All Duty Roster duties have been removed from Duty Roster up to the end of May. Those Members who had already booked duties have been notified.
All Club events have been suspended pending a risk assessment to allow resumption. The Sailing Committee will review the situation in the light of any further developments.
As things stand all Club Training Courses have been suspended for the foreseeable future. All those persons who had booked courses during this period have been contacted by the Club office.
Up to the end of June all Open events have been either cancelled or postponed, whilst others are currently being reviewed by the organisers and may be subject to change. Where requested the Club will endeavour re-schedule events for later in the year. However, in the current rapidly changing environment there can be no certainty.
