Condor series 1,2 & 3

It’s hopefully looking like a Northerly Force 4 with some sun for the three races of the Condor Series tomorrow, but be prepared for a chilly morning on the water!

First race starting promptly at 10:00 hrs.

Please sign on today via Webcollect.

Jubilee Regatta 18th Oct

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.

COVID-19 URGENT UPDATE

Having promptly communicated the Guidance for Level 1, Jersey Sport have this morning advised me that unexpected changes were made by the Government at the last minute. The changes relate to the previously communicated ‘Close Contact’ sport, when in fact it is only ‘Close Fleeting Contact’ sport that is permitted during the early stages of Level 1.

IMPORTANT – this unfortunately means that the crewing of Double Handed boats and RiB’s will only be possible for members of the same family or household for the time being.

I appreciate that this will be frustrating for some and Jersey Sport has asked me to pass on their apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Please use the link below to view the presentation which has been amended accordingly:

COVID-19 Current GuidElines

Dear Members,

With the success of our return to sailing programme and the large numbers of members enjoying some fantastic sailing at the Club, we must all continue to play our part in following the current guidelines to mitigate against the spread of the coronavirus, particularly as many members are now travelling off Island.

As a polite reminder to those of you who have been off Island, please do not visit the Club for any reason until the results of your test have been confirmed as negative.

Your continued participation and due diligence in helping to keep us all safe is very much appreciated.

Best Regards

Dave Jones
