Update 9th July 2020
Firstly, I would like to thank you all for your cooperation and support whilst the club house has been closed.
Following the relaxation of the lockdown in Wales this week, members are now able to visit their boats but not to stay overnight. I am hoping and expecting, as many of you will be, that the lockdown will be further relaxed from Monday 13th July to enable us to stay overnight on our boats. This will mean we are able to prepare, launch and go sailing.
With this in mind, your management committee has been working hard, planning for your return. The club facilities are now partially open in line with the guidelines from the Welsh Government. The heads, entrance corridor, dinghy store and external environs have been prepared whilst the galley and club rooms remain closed.
Please take time to read it carefully as it details what you should do in order to keep yourself and each other safe.
I cannot over-emphasize the responsibility of all members to behave considerately, keeping yourselves and others safe.
Whilst the club facilities have been prepared as detailed in the risk assessment, the responsibility to implement sections 1 , 3 & 5 lie with us all.
On visiting the club you will find some things a little different:
- The Signing in Book / Visitors Book is in the entrance corridor. There is only one book, the visitor pages are at the back. You are asked to give extra details – a contact phone number and the time you came into the club. This is in case they are needed for ‘Test and Trace’.
- The First Aid cupboard is also in the entrance corridor, so that it is accessible if anyone needs to use it. It contains gloves, face masks and a visor in addition to its normal contents. If you are in close contact with someone not in your household, both the casualty and first responder should wear face coverings. Members are reminded that in the event of a person needing resuscitation, only CPR is allowed. No initial breaths are to be given.
- The accident book is also in the entrance corridor.
- If someone visits the club with symptoms of Covid 19 or there is contamination with body fluids, the club should be immediately closed by any member, and the Commodore or Secretary informed. (There is a sign under the FA cabinet).
- There is sanitizer in the entrance corridor, heads and dingy store and members should sanitize their hands on entry and exit. There is also sanitizing spray in the heads for all members to clean the surfaces they touch.
Committee members cannot be present at the club all the time, so it is important that if you feel anything is not working well, or if you feel unsafe whilst you are there, you let me know.
I would like to thank all members in anticipation of their patience and cooperation during the time when we are only able to partially open the club. You can be assured that we are planning what needs
to be done in order to open more fully in the future.
