The Management Committee are endeavouring to keep everyone updated in terms of the COVID-19 situation and how it impacts on our use of the water and access to the Club's facilities. Clearly it was great news that the restrictions changed to allow certain water based activities, including recreational sailing, so that members can access their boats and the river via the Club.
Management Committee and the specific COVID-19 Working Group, are keeping all the changing guidance and announcements under review, and considering at each stage how this effects the Club and any activities we are able to consider.
Currently the toilets are open with social distancing measures in place, and there is an additional hand wash sink available.
The Clubhouse remains closed, and we are also not yet able to open the changing areas next to the toilets, so please do not use them.
Members and any visitors to the Club are asked to abide by the current social distancing guidance.
As more and more people are moving around away from their homes, what we do at the club is very visible from the village and the river. So can we remind everyone that even though you can now exercise alone, with members of your household, or with up to, but no more than 5 other people from outside your household - while doing so you should be keeping 2 metres apart at all times. Gatherings of more than 6 people are still not permitted, so we need to be mindful of this at the Club, particularly where space is limited at busier times.
If you want to go on the water at the Club, we ask that you continue to take all necessary personal precautions over hygiene and the risk of infection as in current Government advice, and we would encourage you strongly to continue following the RYA’s Considerate and Conservative approach to minimise potential risks.
Please also check the latest Broads Authority advice which helps clarify the Government advice around water based activities and local considerations:
