CHIPSTEAD SAILING CLUB – CLOSURE
Following H.M. Government's recent announcement of a new lockdown and guidance received from the RYA it is clear that not only must we now close the Clubhouse and dinghy park, but also that no sailing, paddleboarding, radio sailing or other activity whatsoever should take place, even on an independent basis.
There are some more photos of the Solo fleet racing here. They were taken on Saturday 26th September
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!
