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.

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.

The main gate to the Mere is closed at the moment due to the present Lockdown.
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.

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.
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.

General Data Protection Regulation
Will the GDPR still apply when we leave the EU?   Here
The GDPR is an EU Regulation and, in principle, it will no longer apply to the UK from the end of the transition period. However, if you operate inside the UK, you will need to comply with UK data protection law. The government has said that it intends to incorporate the GDPR into UK data protection law from the end of the transition period – so in practice there will be little change to the core data protection principles, rights and obligations found in the GDPR.
The EU version of the GDPR may also still apply directly to you if you operate in Europe, offer goods or services to individuals in Europe, or monitor the behaviour of individuals in Europe.
The GDPR will still apply to any organisations in Europe who send you data, so you may need to help them decide how to transfer personal data to the UK in line with the GDPR.
The ICO will not be the regulator for any European-specific activities caught by the EU version of the GDPR, although we hope to continue working closely with European supervisory authorities.
For more information on how this affects your data protection obligations and what you need to do, read Data Protection at the end of the transition period.
