Covid 19 update, 06/11/2020 - Lockdown 2

Letter from the Commodore

Dear Locks

Here we go again with lockdown number two.

The committee have met and concluded that to follow current Government and RYA guidelines, the club facilities will be closed with immediate effect and all sailing activities halted. We will continue to monitor changes with guidelines and advice to ensure that sailing can resume as soon as reasonably possible. To that end, the sailing secretary is considering extending the delayed autumn series into the new year.
I reiterate, there will be no access to the club building until further notice, although limited access to the
compound for checking the security of boats is permitted.

For the AGM scheduled for the 1st December, the committee have developed the plans for the AGM process and successfully tested a large-scale Zoom meeting and online voting system. As a result, we have decided that all voting will be at this Zoom meeting rather than by email. The agenda and items to vote on will be sent by email along with your invite to the Zoom meeting.

In the meantime, I wish you the best of health in these difficult times and look forward to seeing you at the club hopefully sooner rather than later.

Kind regards, Chris Flewitt, Commodore


Quiz at the clubhouse

Why not come along to a quiz at the sailing club this year - it's friendly, and the questions aren't too hard (well, most of them!). Bring a team, or come and join one of the teams on the night.

We start at 19:30 in the clubhouse. £1 for members, £2 for non-members, 4 rounds, and the winner of each round wins a bottle of wine. Plus the bar is open!

Hope to see you there!

Volunteers to help operate the Bar

In an effort to be ready for a great season and fun year at the Locks in 2020, the Committee would like to ask for volunteers to help operate the bar.

We'd love to see more people in the club, not just the racers who most weekends do pop into the bar for a catch up after sailing.

One of the things we would like to do is have people available to open the bar while the sailors are on the water, so that members start to know that the "Bar is Open".

Anyone who would like to be bar trained and join in the fun, please contact Chris Reynolds and he can help organise this for you.

Members please remember to Book in Here to reserve a club boat.
