With the new announcement from the Government, we will clearly have to adjust what we can do, and are awaiting full guidance from the DCMS and RYA. Looking at the bullet points from Boris, individuals will still be able to do sport, BUT mustn’t meet up outside with non-household members other than 1 person from one other household.
“to exercise outdoors or visit an outdoor public place – with the people you live with, with your support bubble or, when on your own, with 1 person from another household.“
This means that from Thursday, we are asking you to ensure that you do not meet up in the dinghy park, on the pontoon or in the pound other than as outlined above. Therefore, we ask if using the pontoon, no one waits on there after launching, or recovering.
We will pass on any further guidance and rules when we have them. The toilets remain in use for emergencies unless we are told otherwise.
As always, the Flag Officers, Trustees, Committee and I really appreciate your good will and following of the rules hence allowing the pontoon to be open for individual and household use. As the rules change, we will keep you up to date with all changes from our ruling authority, the RYA, the DCMS and the Government.
