Club Reopening


Following publication of the Government roadmap to ease coronavirus restrictions, I am pleased to be able to update Members with our plans to resume activities and services at the Club:
Sailing Activities:
Our regular Club events will commence on the following dates, unless there is a further change to Government guidelines:

  • Mon 29th March - Junior Coaching
  • Sun 11th April - Keelboat Spring Series
  • Mon 12th April - Monday Evening Dinghy Series
  • Thu 15th April - Scow Potters
  • Fri 16th April - Friday Evening Junior Racing Series
  • Sat 24th April - XOD & Folkboat Saturday Series
  • Wed 28th April - XOD & Folkboat Wednesday Series
  • Thu 29th April - Thursday Evening Keelboats Series
We anticipate that dinghy classes may be crewed in their normal configuration, but there will be restrictions on the number of Boats allowed on the Slipway at one time.
We are awaiting updated guidance from the RYA on any Crew number restrictions that may be required for keelboat racing. The Racing sub-committee will be considering this next week and we will update Members as soon as possible.
Club organised cruising activity can take place after 12th April observing two households restrictions or the ‘rule of six’ for outdoor socialising.
A full Boatman service will resume on 29th March including ferrying. However, in order to comply with regulations, the maximum number of passengers on ‘Valiant’ will be restricted to five and face coverings must be worn. In the meantime the pontoons remain open and Club tenders are available for Members to check on their boats.
The crane service will also resume from the 29th March and bookings should be made through the office or online here
Clubhouse, Restaurant and Bar:
From 12th April until 16th May, the regulations only allow Mosimann’s to offer a table service for food and/or alcohol on the outside areas of the Club. Tables will be limited to two households or ‘the rule of six’. The initial plan for this period is to offer the following weekly schedule subject to demand:
  • Monday - Open 1600 - Last orders 2000
  • Tuesday & Wednesday - Closed
  • Thursday to Saturday - Open 1200 - Last orders 2000
  • Sunday - Open 1200 - Last orders 1500

There will be flexibility on this schedule to serve Members coming ashore from Monday and Thursday evening racing.
From 17th May, Mosimann’s will be permitted to serve Members and Guests inside the Club.  I will update Members on the opening hours and service available nearer that date.
Mosimann’s will continue to offer their click ‘n collect service until 10th April:
The ground floor of the Clubhouse will reopen to Members on 29th March and the Office will then be manned every day, including Saturday and Sunday mornings. In order to comply with the regulations, the slipway lounge and sail loft will initially only be available for Junior Coaching. We will publish a wider training programme in the coming weeks.
Thank you to all our Committee Members and Staff who are working hard to get the 2021 season underway for all our Members.
I look forward to seeing you back at the Club and on the water very soon.
