UPDATE – COVID
Below is the situation with regard to us (MSC) as a Group membership sailing at Killington. Basically we can’t use the dinghies there and can’t use the safety boat. It would be nice to be able to use their single-handers and safety boat and run some beginners sailing sessions.We could take our own Club dinghies and safety boat but that would be a big job.
USE OF CLUB FACILITIES
UPDATE / REMINDER (5/8/20)
The club is open to all members at present providing they fully observe government guidelines on group/bubble size and proximity and in the case of groups, observing their own organising body’s regulations.
The clubhouse is only open for toilet use – no other facilities indoors are available – there is spray disinfectant inside both toilets to spray down any surfaces you have touched after use – Please use a paper towel to also disinfect the clubhouse door handles after use. (please don’t be tempted to use toilets as a changing room – come to the club changed for action)
Club boats are available for loan to a single borrower/bubble/family (therefore not group members) for a period of exclusive use from Friday to Monday – which allows 72 hours on Tues – Thursday for the boat to reduce any Covid transmission risk. Bookings need to be made in advance through Myles ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) one weekend at a time.
The Club RIB is not presently available for use.
Current RYA guidance allows multi person crewing of dinghies subject to your own risk assessment – the full guidance is available here.
Killington is an inland lake which many of you are now familiar with and it provides a good chance for you to do some helming and racing with some instruction as well as the possibility of some Safety Boat practice and instruction.
