CHIPSTEAD SAILING CLUB – RE-OPENING
The really great news is that the current guidance allows us to run our summer programme in its entirety! Unsurprisingly there will be restrictions applying to the use of the Clubhouse (especially changing rooms), Bar and Catering Facilities. The Government’s rules on Social Distancing and group size must be obeyed at all times, but we must hope that their hope of total relaxation by late June is realised.
The highlights are:

As a club member with some insight into the workings of our General Committee, I would like to give you a small insight into the work they have put into keeping our lovely club afloat. Safely working along Government and RYA Guidelines and keeping in mind Local restrictions.
The Committee in general have spent so many hours and days researching through the ever changing guidelines. Spending hours of their valuable time in extra meetings. Ordering posters. Attaching locks etc etc. Discussing the best format for Lockdown , Easing , Opening up and beyond. To my mind they have been amazing and I certainly would like to extend my appreciation and thanks. It would have brought down lesser mortals.
They certainly stood by the old adage - Stay calm and carry on!
