Coronavirus Update (2020-05-29)

Message from The Commodore

Return to Sailing Update - Re-opening the Club.

Hi everyone, I am taking the opportunity to update you on the plan for the re-opening of the Club. The Executive Committee has been working hard to establish a phased plan to return to sailing, within government and RYA guidelines. The first phase of this plan (Phase 1) is to return to Restricted Sailing .... with the Clubhouse and Boathouse closed, plus Social Distancing on the quayside and on the water. We have completed the necessary Risk Assessments, procedures, insurance, signage, sanitation and, essentially, we are ready to go. Our main issue is Sefton Council's current closure of the Lake. Our local councillor, Pat Keith, has been investigating the situation with the Council, and the Council have now written to me. I will share this with you ....

"As a council we must safe-guard the large numbers of elderly retired residents (a high risk group) residing within the seafront. Opening the Marine Lake could send out a message that we are open for business, encouraging the public to arrive on mass .... Highly visible boats (no matter how many) on an open body of water, within a very popular seafront, will (with the help of social media) send out a message that all are welcome, it’s business as usual. When in fact the message from Sefton Council is to “stay away stay safe”. To relax our policy at this stage Sefton Council believe would be a mistake ... we will however review the situation on a regular basis, and open the seafront to leisure activities and concessions when it is safe to do so ... I hope to have news for you in a couple of weeks.

No matter how we might feel as sailors, the Council are dealing with a very difficult Public Health Issue, and I feel that we need to support them. It would appear that we have several weeks to wait before we will be sailing again, albeit with restrictions imposed. This is not necessarily the news that we all want to hear, but we can now start to look to the future and a resolution of this situation
