CYC and Covid-19 - update 2
In response to the Prime Minister's announcement yesterday, the Club is obliged to further curtail activities.
The Clubhouse must now be closed to Members in line with government instructions not to travel except to access healthcare, for food shopping, for exercise and travel to work where this cannot be avoided.
The Club grounds remain open for the purpose of exercise and for access to your boats where this is absolutely essential. However, please ensure a safe social distance of at least two metres.
Regrettably, the Clean-Up day scheduled for the 4th April has been postponed indefinitely. It is hoped that members will support a re-scheduled day when circumstances allow.
Many of you may find that your boats cannot be launched and so our sailing season may, at best, be short. The White Sail Series has been cancelled. The Sailing Instructions have already been prepared and it is hoped that a short Series will be possible towards the end of the season.
The Regatta, planned for the 12th September, may go ahead if restrictions are lifted by that time - further information will be sent during the next few months.
I am sorry to be the bearer of such a restrictive message but hopefully these measures will contribute to the protection of our healthcare workers and prevent the overwhelming of our NHS.
I am sure that I speak for all the Committee in hoping that you and your loved ones are able to stay safe and that we are all able to resume our normal activities as soon as possible.
John, Commodore, 24th March 2020.}
