Covid Specific Information

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.

The Do's and Don'ts:

  • We can run group sessions with an instructor and up to six participants.
  • We can go single-handed Sailing, Windsurfing, SUPing and run all activities on the water, whilst following government guidance and maintaining the social distancing rules.
  • We can use outdoor spaces and shelters but cannot go indoors other than to use the toilet facilities, we have two large marquees to help alleviate this problem. No showers or changing facilities are available.
  • You will need to buzz at the gate to gain access, and please park in the lower car park.
  • You will be given a meeting point for the duration of your course, outside of the clubhouse.
  • Are you fit to visit? Please do not attend if you or anyone in your household are experiencing Covid symptoms or are feeling unwell.
  • Please ensure you have booked your session and check our website for the latest covid guidance

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, 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.
