Updated statement regarding activity at Priory Sailing Club – issued 27th March 2021

With the lifting of the current Lockdown restrictions we are pleased to say that we are able to open our sailing club once again.

From Monday 29th March PSC members may visit the club to carry out maintenance on their boats.

On Thursday 1st April our locally imposed Winter Restrictions are lifted and members may once again take to the water, subject to our normal Sailing Rules.

In addition to our normal Sailing Rules and Club Byelaws there are some supplementary measures that you will be required to observe in relation to the additional risks that the Covid -19 virus presents to our wellbeing.

These measures are in place to encourage members to come to the club to exercise, in the knowledge that the risks on our site are being managed and minimised. We are confident that after our period of Lockdown the principle of looking after each other by following the recommended guidance is well understood and will be respected by our members.

Club dinghies will be available for members to book at weekends during April and also on Wednesday evenings from 5th May.

Club racing on Sundays will recommence on 4th April.

There will be a phased return to our coaching activities.
