Coronavirus Update

Membership Renewals

A letter from the Commodore was sent to all members  on Sunday 29 March explaining the Club’s position. Here is a link to the ‘How to’ document referenced in the Q&A attached to the letter.

Access to the Club Site

The Prime Ministerial statement on 23 March places stringent restrictions on people leaving their homes.  Consistent with these restrictions we have closed access to the Club Site with immediate effect.  The buildings are being secured and closed and the boat park is being checked before all staff leave site.  Access will not be possible until the restrictions are lifted; in the Prime Minister’s announcement he said that they would be reviewed after three weeks   In the meantime, we will do whatever we can within the Government’s restrictions to ensure the security of the site.  The office staff, who will continue working from home, will be able to remotely access email and phone calls, but please understand if there is a delay in responding.

Meanwhile Council continues to review the steps we need to take as a Club in order to deal with this radically changed situation.

We are creating a Coronavirus Blog on the website which will provide a history of the various announcements, but also general items that may be of interest to members during this time.
