Updated Club Guidance


Following Monday's Government Announcement on the three tier system of restrictions we've been reviwing the latest club guidance.

The following documents have now been updated:

Q&As for English Clubs Restarting Boating Activity

Guidance for English clubs on restarting boating activity and managing COVID-19

These updates include guidance on changing rooms, bar and catering, outdoor activity, events, travel and accommodation and social contact outdoors and a summary table of what is possible in each tier (see page 22 of the guidance document).

RYA Regional Development Manager Gareth Brookes said; "We understand that once again clubs are facing real challenges with many sailing clubs facing tighter restrictions following the introduction of the three tier system.

"We recommend that those involved in running clubs take a careful look at the updated guidance and in particular the summary table which we hope will make it clearer to work out what areas of club activity are affected".

In order to stop the spread of Covid 19 the Scottish Government have implemented new guidance which differentiates between five NHS Health Boards in the Central Belt and the rest of Scotland. The Central Belt comprises of Lothian, Lanarkshire, Forth Valley, Ayrshire &Arran and Greater Glasgow & Clyde Health Boards.

These notes and advice sit alongside our existing guidance for general boating activities and Clubs and Centre Guidance and in some instances supersede these documents temporarily. The information aims to address the implications on boating activity of the temporary restrictions that come into effect for 16 days from the 10th until the 26th October 2020.

Following the First Ministers announcement at lunchtime concerning the Circuit Breaker lockdown, it is regrettable that all boating activities will need to cease from 6 pm Friday 23rd October until Monday 9th November.
