Dear Members

It is with regret that I have to inform you that all Club sailing activities for members under the age of 18 and over 65 will cease from Saturday 21 March until further notice. This includes all racing and training events we have planned for the age groups concerned.

As a result of this announcement all Winter Training sessions are cancelled with immediate effect.

We are following the advice from Jersey Sport which is set to be in place for a considerable duration.

Whilst this does not of course bring the Club to a standstill, adults can still take part and enjoy their sailing under the present guidelines, I am aware that St Catherine’s Sailing Club is a youth orientated organisation and that the news today will greatly affect the start to the season.

If as an adult, you are still intending to sail in any scheduled event, please adhere to the advice sent out in my recent emails.  Please also adopt a ‘Sail and Go’ approach to each event to prevent group gatherings in the clubhouse.

I hope you will understand and respect the steps we are taking, as the need for us all to play our part in tackling the spread of the Coronavirus across the Island community becomes a priority.  These are unprecedented times for us all.

Keep happy and healthy and look after yourselves so that we can fully reconvene as a Club together soon.

I hope to see the Bay full of sails and the dinghy park full of smiles again in the near future.

Best regards

Dave Jones
