COVID-19 UPDATE

Your General Committee and the Trustees of Weymouth Sailing Club CIO want to reiterate information that has been sent out in the past week

There is no reason for you to access the yard or clubhouse at this current time unless it is absolutely critical.

We have people keeping an eye on the yard, moorings and clubhouse on a daily basis.

Power to both yards has been disconnected, although no boat should be plugged into the mains when not in attendance in any case.

We’ve received notice from the RNLI that they have limited resources and will not attend leisure craft call outs.

The Harbour office is enforcing the no leisure craft use which includes Kayaks, wind surfers and paddle boarders. They have on water patrols and are utilising the CCTV system.

Our friends round at Castle Cove are enforcing the same restrictions on their members and the Academy is closed. Any persons out on the water are certainly not from Yacht Clubs of Weymouth.

We’re looking at ways of helping our bar staff financially and will liaise directly with each of them when this gets clarified.

We’re reviewing the whole situation regularly as HM Government advises.

Please, Stay at home and stay safe.
