Return to sailing - how it works

Published 00:00 on 30 Mar 2021

Following Government and RYA advice, TSC is aiming to get right side up and return to sailing from 29th March. This date will be a starting point however restrictions as of last autumn will still be in place.

The term 'sailing' also applies to windsurfing, kayaking and all boating activities that typically occur at TSC.

The Guiding Principles

The guiding principles remain as previously, please be:

Considerate - be mindful of the potential impact that you have on other club members and water users and do not place unnecessary extra strain on the RNLI, SARA and other emergency services however if they are required do not hesitate to call them.

Conservative - help to minimise risk by taking an extra conservative approach to your boating.


General considerations

Follow strict personal hygiene measures, wash hands, use hand sanitizer,

Maintain social distancing as much as possible. 6 in a group or 2 households.

Club Facilities

Toilets and hand basins only.

Hot drinks can be made in the Boat Shed.

No Bar, Galley or gatherings in the Club room.

Boating Activities

RIBS and OOD duties will run as normal, members should take such precautions as they think fit to stay safe (hands, face, space).

We'd like to remind you that, for all sailing at TSC except sail training, you are responsible for your own safety and should assess your own skills and be prepared to self rescue if necessary. Consider unforeseen issues that may occur. If in doubt don't launch. The water temperature is extremely cold at this time of year.

Remember that you go on the water at your own risk.

Guidelines will be reviewed over the coming weeks and you will be informed if further advice or relaxation is received.
