Notice to Members No.6

Published by under Club Notices

Hi All

Once again, we have yet another consideration to guide our club through. On the 12th of October, to be implemented on the 17th October, the government announced yet another version of how the country must try to fight the virus. This, as I’m sure you are aware, brought in different measures in different locations. The government refer to this as a tier system, but is also known as Medium (Tier 1), High (Tier 2) and Very High (Tier 3) levels of alert – restrictions.

The guidance to this which was published just recently,  gives us as a club a further dilemma. Our members are generally local but also come from areas in different Tiers. See at

You can also find out which Tier you are in at :

The club is still in Tier 1 so we are not affected as far as opening is concerned at this point.

However again, this does affect how we as a club must operate.

In short:

If you are in Tier 1 then you can continue to enjoy the club under its current restrictions

If you are in a Tier 2 area you may only sit at a table with people from your household or one person living alone who you have exclusively formed a single bubble with.

If you are in Tier 3 then you may not visit the club at present.

This for the club is almost impossible for us to police so we have to ask you to be aware of which Tier your home address is in and abide by the rules accordingly to ensure all are safe when visiting our club. We would also respectfully ask that you add which tier you are in when signing in please.

This I know is far from ideal and all I can say is your committee will work swiftly and diligently to amend any rules as soon as we are able to do so.

In the meantime, keep safe
Kind Regards
Steve Hopper Commodore

Club house opening late today 16/10/2020

Published by under Club Notices

Dear Members,

This is to inform you that the club will be opening later than usual, at 12:30 today and may close after dining at 8:00pm due to a staffing issue. Notification of this will follow.

The reasons for this are that we have again been notified of a Covid 19 case that could affect club bar staff. This is due to the fact that the father of one staff member is currently being treated as a positive Covid 19 case and so that staff member has been told to isolate.

To make it clear the guidance says until that staff member (now in isolation) shows symptoms the club can continue to operate with its remaining staff following as it has, the relevant guidelines for covid safety as we have continually throughout. However as a precaution I have instructed a deep sanitizing clean of the Bar, Kitchen and club house. This will not be completed until 12:30. We do maintain a high standard and the measures in place are designed to keep staff, visitors and members safe.

I have increased this safety today by asking for that deep clean and adding in increased hand sanitizing behind the bar and in the kitchen. Please all do use the sanitizing facilities provided regularly.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but we feel it is in the best interests of the club, its visitors and you the members to ensure we maintain a high standard of sanitization and cleaning to keep you safe.

Kind regards
Wayne A Miller, Vice Commodore

Windsurfers and kayaks winter storage due.

Published by under Club Notices

There are a number of windsurfing boards and Kayaks currently lying in the dinghy park many of which appear abandoned. If any are owned by members you are reminded that in order to be kept in the boat park you will need to pay a winter storage fee and insure your equipment has a winter storage label on it. The winter storage fee is a princely sum of £1.17 a foot. Any such equipment in the boat park will be removed and disposed of if found to have no winter storage paid. For those of you who wish to dispose of your unwanted boards and cannot take them home please leave by the rubbish bin out front and i will ensure they disappear.
