Cadet Week 2020 Cancelled

Cadet Week 2020 Cancelled

As a committee we took the decision back in March to continue to plan for a Cadet week, but not to put out the application forms due to the uncertainty of the duration of lockdown. The General Committee have been meeting on a weekly basis, closely monitoring the guidance from the Government and subsequent changes to the advice given by the RYA and PLA.

 

Having reviewed the planned changes to restrictions issued last week and even with the gradual lifting of lockdown, the obstacles were too big for us to provide a safe event on and off the water. We have therefore taken the decision to cancel this year’s Cadet Week. This is not a decision we have taken lightly, we are disappointed but feel it is the right decision.

 

As the summer progresses I look forward to seeing more people re integrating with the club and getting back on the water in whatever form that may be. When as a club we are able to organise activities safely, we will look at the remaining planned Cadet programme for the season and issue further guidance.

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.

Stingray groups

Due to changes in the numbers of Cadet in Stingrays, We have needed to revise the teams. The revised teams will he posted at the YC before registration this afternoon.

This year Stingrays is as popular as ever but is relatively young and inexperienced so we have worked really hard to make the teams as balanced in average age and experience as possible. Thank you for your support with this as we move towards another fantastic week on water and the beach.
