The committee are pleased to announce that the necessary arrangements have been made to allow sailing to commence on a limited basis in accordance with Government and RYA Guidance.

Full details will shortly be available on the web site. www.hornseasailingclub.org.uk

Initially sailing will only be available from Thursday to Saturday and each day will be split into two sessions, 10.00 - 12.15 hrs and 12.45 - 15.00 hrs.
Sunday racing 10 am to 4 pm.  2 pursuit races first race at 11 am.
Sailors will need to book a place in a session up to 5 days ahead, via the website, and this will be limited to one session booked ahead.
Booking will only be available to members who have renewed their membership and have been provided with login details and a password for the booking system.
The clubhouse will remain closed to all members with the exception of the Duty Officer and Safety Boats Driver of the day.

It is hoped that some restrictions can be lifted before too long, but in the meantime we ask members to respect the COVID-19 operating procedures that have been developed for the safety and protection of all members.

Access to the mere is available Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday 9 am to 4:30 pm.
 
The following restrictions will be enforced when at the mere.
1, Strict 2 metre social distancing.
2, The Club-room closed to everyone except the Duty Officer and Safety boat crew if
necessary for obtaining the safety boat keys etc.
3, Changing rooms will be closed.
4, Clean the toilets after use.
A booking system will operate with a maximum of 6 boats per session.
Sailing will take place with 2 sessions a day 10 am to 12:15 pm and 12:45 pm to 3 pm. Thursday to Saturday.
Sunday 10 am to 4 pm (one session) with 2 pursuit races, first race 11 am.
This system will be under revue regularly.

We will require two people to volunteer to do Duty Officer and Safety Boat driver so please think about doing your bit.
 
These restrictions are a million miles from what we have been used to at the mere but we are in challenging times so we must follow the rules and advice put in place by the Government and guideline from the RYA.

If you are willing to do a Duty Officer or Safety Boat duty on Thursday to Sunday please email Steve Levett or Paul Ellwood with your preference for a full day or half day.  We has some places to fill.
IF WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH VOLUNTEERS, WE WON'T BE SAILING.
Please remember the gates to the mere are only open on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Have your say on the Forum.

Stay safe and keep an eye on the website.
