Covid 19 update


Under the current circumstances, and in line with government guidelines, the committee has regrettably concluded that the correct response to the Covid-19 pandemic is to close the clubhouse to all members, and to suspend all organised racing until 25th April. No one is to enter the premises, including the changing rooms and toilets, between today and this date. The end date may be reviewed in the light of changing circumstances.

The compound will not be off-limits, so you may access it for ingress or egress of boats. Additionally, ad-hoc sailing is not prohibited, provided that the prevailing guidance on social distancing is observed, and on the strict understanding that there will be no patrol boat cover.

I’m sure you all understand the seriousness of the situation, and will abide by these instructions. We all want to get back on the water after the winter break, and we will relax this ban and reinstate organised sailing at the earliest opportunity. In the meantime, please stay safe and well, and we will update you when appropriate.

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.
