LSC COVID-19 UPDATE Thursday 7th January 2021

LSC Covid-19 Update, January 7th 2021

As we are all only too aware, the whole country, (barring some islands) is in lockdown or Tier 5 as it is now being called. It seems likely there will be little change in the next 6 weeks, or even until late March according to some. We are all being asked to stay at home.

Langstone Sailing Club is now completely closed and we ask that you do not come at all, except in very limited circumstances.

You can visit the club only:

  • To carry out essential maintenance to your boat.
  • To allow an external contractor access to work on your boat.
  • On club business with the express consent of the Covid Taskforce.

Rules regarding taking exercise in boats are rather confusing but currently it seems that you can launch a craft from a public slipway. This means you would have to bring it from home as you cannot visit the boat park except as above.

This notice is the interpretation of the Covid Taskforce. As ever, the Government guidance can change unexpectedly and it is up to members to be aware of the current position.

The Covid team may be contacted by emailing covid@langstonesc.org.uk

LSC Covid-19 Update, December 20th, 2020

Hello everyone, me again. I imagine you are almost as tired of getting these updates as I am of sending them. Well, Langstone Sailing Club is now in Tier 4 after just one day in Tier 3. As always, all members are subject to all rules and laws laid down by the government and now specifically:

You can:

  • Access your cruiser for essential maintenance
  • Access and use your dinghy as you wish, (but only on your own or with a family member).

You cannot:

  • Come to the club if you or any member of your household is displaying symptoms
  • Access any parts of any of the buildings, (including toilets).
  • Stay overnight on your boat
  • Use any of the club dinghies or safety boats

Please remember:

  • All the rules for sailing in a socially distanced way which were in force until the November lockdown remain, so for winter dinghy sailing these must be observed.
  • You must not meet or mix with anyone outside your family group.
  • Nobody should be entering the area from another Tier.

The above is the interpretation of the Covid Taskforce. As ever, the Government guidance can change unexpectedly and it is up to members to be aware of the current position

COVID update Wed 2nd December 2020

There has been a little confusion as to when the next stage started. It seems it is 2nd, not 3rd as gov.uk originally advised.
From today, Langstone Sailing Club is in Tier 2, so all members are subject to all rules and laws laid down by the government and specifically:

You can:

    • Access your cruiser
    • Launch and recover cruisers subject to direction by Mooring & Berthing
    • Access and use your dinghy as you wish
    • Use the club toilets
    • Access the wooden boat shed
    You cannot:
    • Come to the club if you or any member of your household is displaying symptoms
    • Access any other parts of the building
    • Use the galley or bar for any reason
    • Stay overnight on your boat
    Please remember:
    • All the rules for sailing in a socially distanced way which were in force until the November lockdown remain, so for winter dinghy sailing these must be observed.
    • You must observe social distancing when mixing with others. The maximum number who may gather together outside is six.
    • Only members of one family group may use ladies or gents toilet at any one time.
    Enjoy.
