Dinghy Park Halyards

Published by under Club Notices

This message is for those whose boat in the dinghy park has a mast.  Please ensure that halyards are secured away from the mast.
Your volunteer committee has plenty to do with the day to day running of the club.   Please don’t add “smoothing ruffled feathers” to the workload.
Let’s be good neighbours.
Thank you.

Notice to Members from the Commodore

Published by under Club Notices

Firstly, as always, please may I thank all of our wonderful members for your co-operation, understanding, patience and continued support. Your Committee are very appreciative.

We are now following revised guidance from HM Government, working hard at getting our Club House back open at the earliest opportunity.

It is our intention to re-open the Club House on Saturday 4th July. However, our primary concern as always is to provide as safe an environment as possible under Covid 19 restrictions. This will be a low key return with many safety measures (more guidance to follow).

In short, such measures will be:

  1. Advise to visit only if well and not experiencing any coronavirus symptoms or anxious in any way
  2. Practical steps such as one-way systems
  3. Screens and social distancing markings
  4. Seating only with limited space. Please do not be disappointed if the Club is full, it is for everyone’s safety
  5. Bar, food and toilets only, no changing facilities
  6. Cleaning stations and sanitizer at all tables
  7. Increased cleaning regime Signing in book to be completed by all members to comply with NHS track and trace.

The above is just some of the key measures, full details will follow shortly, and all will be displayed on Club TVs and around the Club. Also, as always, information will be circulated to all via email, Club website, Club Facebook and letters to those who do not have access to electronic communications.

I would again rely upon your co-operation with these restrictive measures and please understand the controls have been very carefully considered for the safety of members and staff.

Yours faithfully

Steve Hopper
Commodore

Club Toilets – Now open for Limited use

Published by under Club Notices

We have now assessed and released the toilets in a limited capacity to club members only.

These are for essential use and NOT changing rooms.

To enable more room externally the parking bay closest to the rear door is suspended please do not park there. Also, the smoking area is suspended.

The existing disabled toilet is now set up as Disabled / Family and Ladies only, and the existing Gents is now set up as a lockable toilet and re-designated as Unisex.

Guidance on toilet use under Covid 19:

  • All toilets now have engaged / vacant sliding signs please operate to indicate usage
  • All touchable surfaces must be wiped down before and after use
  • All toilets must be left clean after use. Please leave as you would like to find them
  • In toilets, the lobby cleaning station and the external cleaning station, there is sanitizer for your use
  • The toilets have soap as usual for you to wash your hands
  • The cleaning stations have disposable wipes to wipe down all touchable surfaces
  • The rear door must also be wiped down and has been changed back to the existing access code
  • Signage will be posted at the rear door and by the cleaning station to help
  • Please also remember to be patient and do not forget you can always remind people to be mindful of distancing
  • Please observe social distancing 2m
  • As in all establishments across the country we would remind you that you use the facilities entirely at your own risk and we would urge you if you feel unsafe not to use the facilities
  • The remainder of the club remains closed at present. Although your committee are working towards how we may re-open however this is likely to be in stages and observing social distancing

dinghy park / lower car park security

over the last week I’ve been to the club dinghy park to work on boats 4 times, 3 or these times the gates have been wide open with the lock left hanging and twice with the code still displayed. Now I realise the lock and gate aren’t the best or biggest theft deterrent, but it does go some way to keeping the general public out. So please, if you’re first into the car park, close the lock back up and scramble the code and if you’re last to leave, shut the gate and lock it back up please, it’s not rocket science people, I’m sure you wouldn’t leave your front doors open or your keys in the lock when you go out, so please don’t do tantamount to the same to the club dinghy park.
