In line with Government announcements, we opened the Sailing Club at the end of May 2020. This has been a challenging time as you can appreciate a lot of work has gone in to making the club safe to re-open for visitors and staff. We are very grateful for the patience and understanding from everyone who missed courses at the start of the season as we’ve navigated this challenge, we hope to 2021 runs with less disruption and change.

Junior Courses

Will go ahead with social distance restrictions and we will not be able to operate at the levels we were before, as a result will not be offering the full range of courses that you have come to know and love.

Current activities, what we can do

  • We can run group sessions with an instructor and up to six participants.
  • We can go Sailing, Windsurfing, SUPing and run all activities on the water, whilst following government guidance and maintaining the social distancing rules. So most RYA courses and Multi Activity will be running, with the exception of double handed sailing at the moment .
  • We can use outdoor spaces and shelters but cannot go indoors other than to use the toilet facilities, we have two large marquees coming to help alleviate this problem.

There is much we can do, but there will be some courses that will not be allowed to run whilst Covid-19 restrictions are in place, whilst we are developing others to take their place. As you can appreciate there have been a lot of changes required for us to be able to offer courses and training; and we want to give you our assurance that your safety and welfare is our absolute priority.

Thank you for staying with us as we journey through these challenging waters, we are lucky to be an outdoor sport and have the doors open again. The only thing constant is change!

Please keep visiting the website for the latest information. If you have any issues, please get in contact by email to caroline.fitzwater@queenmary.org.uk.

Thank for reading, thank you for supporting, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you back on the water at Queen Mary.
