Covid 19 – Corona Virus Update 24 March 2020

March 25, 2020 No Comments

The Hunstanton Sailing Club and Water Sports Centre considers the welfare of our members and their families and friends to be of the utmost importance. We are reviewing the Corona virus situation regularly and following the advice and guidance of Public Health England. For this reason we are having to make changes to the way we operate.

To keep you safe and to minimise the spread of the virus, we advise the following changes to our operations:-

Hunstanton Sailing Club and Water Sports Centre will be closed from 24th March 2020 for the time being.

This means that all group, individual, social, watersports and other club based events will be cancelled until we advise otherwise.

At the moment we will consider taking bookings for events from June but these will be provisional, as it is highly likely that they will need to be cancelled or postponed.

In order to shut the club facilities down safely, we will be decommissioning the bar and draining/cleaning the pipes. The hot water system will also be switched off.

We will be reducing the cleaning frequency as the facilities will be closed.

Only essential maintenance tasks will be undertaken.

We will be in touch soon regarding membership renewal options.

Thank you for your cooperation in these difficult times and please contact one of the club committee members should you have and questions or concerns. Please be safe and take care.

Covid 19 – Corona Virus Update 21st March 2020

The Hunstanton Sailing Club and Water Sports Centre considers the welfare of our members and their families and friends to be of the utmost importance. We are reviewing the coronavirus situation regularly and following the advice and guidance of Public Health England. For this reason we are having to make changes to the way we operate.

To keep you safe and to follow the government’s guidance, we advise the following changes to our operations:-

All group, social, watersports and other club based events will be cancelled for March, April and May 2020. We will advise about the status of other scheduled events from June onwards, nearer the time.

At the moment we will consider taking bookings for events from June but these will be provisional, as it is highly likely that they will need to be cancelled or postponed.

We will continue with the current cleaning regime but this will be enhanced to focus on all contact surfaces such as doors, door handles, shower valves, alarm keyboard etc.

Hand sanitiser will be provided for occupants to use in the building.

Individual water sports including windsurfing, kitesurfing, kayaking, supping and single handed sailing dinghies will still be supported and encouraged, so long as the government’s guidance on travelling, social interaction and separation distance of 2m is observed. We recognise that getting exercise and fresh air is important to maintain fitness and social wellbeing in this difficult period.

Club facilities including toilets and showers will remain open to members who continue to follow the latest government advice regarding travelling, social interaction, gathering and the 2m rule. The bar will be closed until further notice.

Members displaying the symptoms of Covid 19 should not use the club house facilities until they are deemed to be no longer contagious as described in the government’s guidance.

There are a number maintenance tasks that need to be completed on the club buildings and the boats. These were going to be undertaken at a number of prearranged working parties. These working parties have been cancelled. Instead we will be undertaking the works using individual volunteers or a handful of volunteers observing the safe 2m distance between one another and other current, relevant government advice.

The government’s advice is changing daily unlike our website. For this reason the government’s advice will always override the advice on this website.

We are so lucky that the sport that we love is individual but please be careful and observe the government’s advice when you are off the water and using the club facilities.

Thank you for your cooperation in these difficult times and please contact one of the club committee members should you have and questions or concerns.
