Notice is hereby given for the 2020 St Catherine’s Sailing Club Annual General Meeting to be held on Sunday 29th November at 15:00 hrs.
Due to the current COVID-19 guidelines, this year’s AGM will take place in the Westward Room at St Helier Yacht Club with numbers being limited to 15 attendees. Members will be able to sign up for available spaces using Webcollect. The meeting will also be accessible online via Zoom.

Winter Training is due to start on Saturday 7th November. Due to the increase in the spread of the coronavirus on Island, particularly with evidence of positive cases at several Island schools and sports clubs, the Committee have decided that it will be in best interests of everyone to return to some of the previous guidance measures adopted earlier this year. Please read the information the following linked document:
Requirements & Guidance for Winter Training Sessions 2020-21
Isolation and Testing Requirements
All travellers into Jersey are required to isolate upon arrival. The highest risk zone a traveller has stayed in, even for one night, within the fortnight before travel sets the following isolation and testing requirements:
Travel from a Green Zone + SCSC Rules
- Test on arrival at the airport or harbour.
- Second test on day five
- Please do not participate in a Club sailing event or visit the Clubhouse until you have received confirmation of a negative result for BOTH tests. This will include all members of your household if a household member is awaiting test results.
Travel from an Amber Zone + SCSC Rules
- Test on arrival at the airport or harbour.
- Second test on day five.
- You must isolate until receiving two negative tests.
- Please do not participate in a Club sailing event or visit the Clubhouse until you have received confirmation of a negative result for both tests. This will include all members of your household if a household member is isolating in that home.
Travel from a Red Zone + SCSC Rules
- Test on day zero and you must isolate for two weeks regardless whether the initial test result is negative.
- Please do not participate in a Club sailing event or visit the Clubhouse until your two week isolation period has been completed. This will include all members of your household if a family member is isolating in that home.
In preparation for tighter track and trace requirements could any adults who now have young family members with phones set them up with their own logins on webcollect. This will help us with the webcollect registration list as it will show them under their own names.
In addition we will have a QR scan code on the club front door similar to bars and restaurants. We would ask anyone who has not registered on webcollect for that day eg parents and race team to scan the code with their phone camera and register their presence on the day.
Many thanks SCSC Committee

The Club’s Jubilee Regatta that was previously postponed due to adverse weather is re-scheduled to take place on Sunday 18th October.
The Regatta will comprise 3 races back to back with the first race starting promptly at 9am so as to ensure racing can be completed before we lose water off the slipway due to the large spring tide.
This will be the last regatta of the 2020 season and we hope to see as many of you as possible taking part. Entry will as usual be through the web collect system.
