LCSC update on Corona Virus (Covid-19)
Published 00:00 on 26 May 2020
In light of the UK Governments recent statements and the developing situation around Corona Virus (COVID-19), the club, in line with RYA recommendations, have taken the difficult decision to suspend all club activities for the foreseeable future, with the exception of some restricted dinghy sailing for which we've now been given the green light. The clubhouse itself remains closed until the end of June.Overall, the situation is obviously still very fluid and the Management Team continue to review the situation each month.
What this means;
Dinghy Sailing: Restricted sailing is now being allowed for experienced dinghy sailors, members only. Details can be seen HERE
Training: Currently all training, both RYA and non-RYA skills courses have been postponed for the foreseeable future, with an ongoing monthly review.
Offshore Sailing: All offshore trips have been suspended for the foreseeable future, with an ongoing monthly review.
Offshore Racing: All racing events have been suspended for the foreseeable future, with an ongoing monthly review.
Social Activities: All LCSC social activities and Tuesday evening gatherings will be suspended until further notice.
Club House: Linden House will shortly be issuing their own statement but will be closing for all social activities until the end of June and until further notice.
We continue to investigate alternative online events, talks, and training to engage with. If you would like to put together a video talk on a pet subject please get in touch. We are also looking at the projects that we can work on over the next couple of months that will put us in a stronger position once life gets back to normality.
I'm sure you will appreciate that these decisions have not been made lightly. Our overall aim must be to look after the health and well being of our members and the communities they live in.
Any questions about this email please feel free to get in touch via email.
