Latest COVID-19 and Club Update

As you know this season’s sailing has been drastically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown restrictions. As the restrictions have eased in recent weeks, Horning SC is taking a phased approach to our return to sailing and racing. Recent trials of a limited racing programme have been well received and we hope that members will continue to enjoy the opportunity to get back to competitive activity.

The current situation has changed all of our lives, and as we take gradual steps towards the new normal we still need to keep some changes to the racing programme and practices in place. We hope you understand our reasons for doing so. We would like to emphasise that everything we are doing is working within the constraints of government guidelines, and our primary aim is to keep our members and the wider community safe. So we are continuing to follow the RYA’s Guiding Principles at all times, which are to be considerate and conservative and to follow government advice.

We are mindful that we are still in the middle of a pandemic and would like to emphasise a few points:

  • We have temporarily lifted restrictions on numbers sailing because we have split fleets sailing into two ‘halves’ – meaning that there will be less numbers sailing than if everyone were to sail at once, but enabling more sailors from one fleet to get out at the same time in order to provide better racing.
  • Racing still needs to be booked in advance on the website via this link:

  • The limits on gatherings do not apply on the water but on the Island – and, as before, our biggest problem remains potential numbers on the Island, so by splitting the fleets as above, we will resultantly be limiting numbers on the Island at any one time.
  • We would please ask that you rig your boat and leave the Island as soon as possible before sailing, and pack away and leave as soon as possible after sailing.
  • Sailors will be required to make their own way to and from the Broad.
  • Racing is for members only at this time. We are looking at ways we can get more younger sailors racing and will be in touch with parents/carers about this soon.
  • Gathering limits still remain on the Island, so please do not gather in groups of more than 6 individuals, subject to an overall maximum of 30 on the Island.
  • Please adhere to government guidelines and social distancing requirements at all times.
Above all, please be careful, considerate and think about everything you can do to minimise risk, not only to yourself but to others too, and have some fantastic sailing!
Flag Officers, Abi, Holly and Chris
