Evening all. After the bad news today about going into tier 4 we've also had some great news about the 2nd vaccine been approved by the mhra.

Update 30/09/20.
All areas in England have been put under tier restrictions. All members have to follow the rules applicable to the tier we've been put in. In particular the club would expect all our members not to make any unnecessary journeys to and from the club until restrictions have been eased again.


Morning .

The wind is to strong for safe sailing again today and it’s going to get stronger if the forecast is to be believed.
We Will try again Wednesday evening.


Unfortunately we need to cancel sailing today due to the high wind speed.
I know some of us like the challenge of sailing in these conditions, but with the safety boat restrictions currently in place due to the Covid virus, it’s not safe to sail today.


Welbeck Sailing Club AGM is this Sunday 7th June , 12 noon start.

With the current restrictions on social distancing, we plan to hold the AGM on the grass in front of the club house. Please if possible can you bring your own folding chair to sit on, don’t worry if this is not possible.

Who's at higher risk from coronavirus - Coronavirus (COVID-19) 21/05/2020

Who's at higher risk from coronavirus - Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Welbeck Sailing Club
Covid-19 guidance.
Updated 15/05/2020. This guidance needs to be reviewed at least once a week. If any members have any safety concerns/suggestions they shall contact the Covid safety officer or a committee member.

At all times current government guidelines must be observed. All normal WSC rules to be observed unless changed in this guidance.

The Covid-19 virus is unlike any other flu virus. It is more virulent, it is more contagious and there was no natural immunity at the start of the outbreak, nor is there a vaccine available. This is why it's so deadly. The Covid-19 pandemic is to stay with us for the whole 2020 sailing season.

Although WSC will do everything possible to facilitate safe sailing, safety at the club is the responsibility of every individual member.

I've made the following assumptions:
1. All surfaces in and around the club including our own cars are potentially contaminated.
2. At all times 2 metres distance rule to be adhered to.
3. Only single-handed boat use is safe except for members of same household.
4. Launching/retrieving of rescue boat has potential for transmission.
5. Use of clubhouse or other buildings has potential for transmission.
6. Opening/closing of gates/use of keypad has potential for transmission.
7. The virus is unlikely to survive for longer than 72 hours on any surface. We therefore only sail on Sundays and Wednesdays and we don't sail on Saturdays.
8. Rescue operations have to be restricted to absolute minimum, therefore no sailing when wind speed is likely to exceed 15mph.

What all club members need to do.
1. Have stylus/pen or similar in car to use on keypad. Have kitchen roll or similar to touch latches/gate surfaces. Use hand sanitizer when leaving your car when arriving at the club and before getting into your car again when leaving the club
2 . Wear gloves at all times whilst at the club.
3. Wear face mask or similar face covering whilst at the club.
4. Have disposable gloves in the car to be used for one off tasks, see C. first person to arrive at the club.
5. Put on your sailing clothes at home so that you don't have to use the changing rooms.
6. All members to check their temperature before travelling to the club and if 37.8 or above to stay at home. Also to stay at home if new continuous cough or 3 or more coughing bouts in 24hr period.

A. Travelling to the club.
1. Press keypad buttons with stylus/pen or similar device and leave in the car.
2. Open both wooden gates by using kitchen roll tissue or similar so that your skin doesn't touch gate latches/top of the gates.
3. After leaving the car immediately use hand sanitizer.
4. Members from different households are not allowed to travel to and from the club in the same car.

B. Whilst at the club.
1. Avoid any unnecessary touching of any surface whilst at the club. This includes avoiding helping other members with lawnmowers, their boats and other equipment.
2. Bring and use your own (foldable) chairs.
3. If we have to use the clubhouse because of rain etc. only use 1 chair for the whole time that you spend at the club and maintain 2m distance from other members.
4. All members to avoid using toilet facilities by using toilet at home just before travelling to the club. If toilet has to be used at the club use hand sanitizer before entering and after leaving toilet facilities as well as washing your hands with soap and water. Paper towels are available.
The showers are not to be used.
5. All members are encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizer and disposable gloves.
6. If any public surfaces, not your own boat, have been touched with your (gloved)hands to use surface disinfectant with a cloth to wipe the surface down. Disinfectant and clothes available in clubhouse and on the hard.
7. When your hands have been in contact with any public surface to use hand sanitizer available on the hard and in the clubhouse.

C. First person to arrive at the club.
1. Park car in front of gate to compound and put disposable gloves on.
2. Open compound gate, clubhouse door, both gates to hard and unlock all 3 doors of old clubhouse. Keep all gates and doors open, if necessary by using wedges/tyres etc.
3. Remove gloves and park car in compound.

D. Changes to OOD duties.
1. Rescue boat to remain on the lake or singlehandedly launched from launching trolley/trailer. (Rain)water can be removed by removing (temporarily!) the b**g at the back of the boat whilst driving the rescue boat.
2. Only 1 OOD to use the rescue boat and fill petrol tank on any given day, unless assistance is needed for rescue purposes.
3 Races can still be organised, but without recording race times, this rule can be amended once we feel more confident about keeping transmission of virus to an absolute minimum/zero.
4. Race course to be kept as simple as possible to avoid members having to write down the course to follow..
5. At end of sailing the petrol tank to be put in storage near the starter hut and rescue boat to be moored in front of the starter hut or only the OOD to pull safety boat on trolley and trolley to be pulled out by car/lawnmower with tow bar. All gates to be closed and all doors to be locked whilst wearing disposable gloves.
E. General safety.
1. No members to visit the club apart from on Wednesdays and Sundays. This is to avoid surface contamination and to avoid the need to regularly clean all the surfaces in and outside the club house.
2. If contact between members has occurred by accident or necessity those members to exchange mobile phone numbers so that the necessary person(s) can be contacted if said member(s) develop symptoms of Covid-19.
3. Anyone showing signs or been diagnosed with Covid19 MUST inform the club, especially if this happens after visiting the club to advise others who may have had contact with them and stay away.
4. The club will allow people at moderate risk (clinically vulnerable) to come to the club, this includes the over seventies, however the club does advise the people in this category to consider their individual risk which can be discussed with the Covid safety officer.
The club will not allow people at high risk (clinically extremely vulnerable) to visit the club.
For details about both categories see: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/people-at-higher-risk-from-coronavirus/whos-at-higher-risk-from-coronavirus/

Who's at higher risk from coronavirus - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Check if you're at higher risk of getting seriously ill from coronavirus (COVID-19).


As you are all aware, there has been a slight relaxation off the lockdown to allow some sporting activity, which seems to include sailing. The committee are urgently looking into the practicalities of a partial reopening of the club. We are hoping to give you more information early next week .


Following the advise from the government with regards to the Corona Virus we have decided to postpone our clubs AGM , which was planed for Sunday 22nd March 2020.
This will also effect the planed boats out event which was planed for the same day, we will keep you informed if the situation changes.


Happy Christmas everyone
