Covid Specific Information

No showers or changing facilities are available at QM at the moment, due to Government restrictions. So we suggest to bring a towel or our personal favourite: a dry robe. Like a dressing gown made of towel material to wear while getting dressed.

You will need to buzz at the gate to gain access. Park at the lower car park and follow signage on site.

The meeting point will be at the front waterside by the stairs up to the clubhouse. Your instructor will meet you here. We have made a temporary outdoor shelter, in-case of bad weather.

Please watch the below safety briefing video:

The COVID-19 preventative measures are vital to protecting health and wellbeing and to minimising pressure on the frontline services. We all have a role to play in adhering to the Government guidelines.
