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.

PLA Notice to Mariners – COVID 19 Restrictions

Published by under Notices

Port of London – River Thames NOTICE TO MARINERS No.6 of 2020  – 24 March 2020

COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS RECREATION AND LEISURE ACTIVITIES

We are issuing this in line with current Government Coronavirus guidance, placing restrictions on movement.

To reduce social contact, travel and potential strain on emergency services, we strongly recommend that all recreation and leisure activities on the tidal Thames are avoided until further notice.

Our priority at the PLA is to help ensure the UK continues to receive essential supplies of food, fuel and medical goods at this time.

As a result, we expect to have a reduced capability in responding to recreational incidents on the river.

To support our essential port operations, we are reducing the operating hours of our harbour service patrols between Putney and Teddington.

We are grateful for your co-operation in these exceptional circumstances.

London River House, Royal Pier Road,
Gravesend, Kent DA12 2BG

Dinghy Park Closure

Following tonight’s message from our Prime Minister. The General Committee have now decided that the time has come to sadly, close the dinghy park.  We are sure you will all understand the reasoning behind this. Other than going to work, shopping, walk or a run, we are to remain at home.

We ask all members to respect this decision and not enter the dinghy park or attempt to go for a sail. The reflection back on the club that we all love would not be favourable. This includes boat maintenance.

We will of course, review the situation constantly and look forward to being back on the water when the situation allows.

Thank you for your co-operation and please stay safe and well.  Keep watching the website and Facebook for updates and info.

Winter Series / Storage in the Dinghy Park

Published by under Notices,Racing

The main club season finished over a month ago and tomorrow is the third Winter Series Saturday Race. There are still over half the boats in the dinghy park (60+) that have yet to pay for winter sailing or storage.

The club would like all members with boats to make sure they are fully paid before the end of November 2019.

The resources of the huge volunteer force that help to run the club are better spent on facilities and sailing management rather than chasing overdue payments.
