Welcome to Hornsea Sailing Club        
The committee met in the rain at the mere and we discussed Starting Sailing.
A lot of work has already been done by Pip and Paul already on:

1, Roadmap – Hornsea Sailing Club for Covid-19 Restrictions. Download here.
2, Duty Officer Proposals.  Download here.
3, RYA, Club_Guidance_Covid19_v1.2  Download here.

The Risk Assessment is just awaiting ratification by the committee and the toilets just require mains water, that should be next week the end of June.

The committee have agreed to hire a portable toilet block with three cubicles with hot and cold water as well as the toilets.
The café will be opening on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 18th June, this will make access easier for club members coming to the mere.

Access to the mere is available Thursday to Sunday 9 am to 5 pm.
We don’t have a date for the sailing to start (it could be in the middle of July) but as soon as the washing and toilets facilities are installed, we will be back on the water.
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 for obtaining the safety boat keys etc.
3, Changing rooms will be close.
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 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm to 4 pm.  This system will be under revue regularly.
More details of how to book will be added here later.
 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 please email Charlie with your preference for a full day or half day.  He has some places to fill.
Please remember the gates to the mere are only open on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Have your say on the Forum.

Stay safe and keep an eye on the website.
