COVID- 19 Easing of restrictions and partial return to the water

Welcome

Maidenhead Sailing Club is a member only club, located just to the North of the Thames side town of Maidenhead, on a gravel pit.  We have available to us 51 acres of water that overlooks the countryside of Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire.  Sailing and Paddlesports are available all year round, with events and coaching and available.  We are a family oriented club, with sailing to satisfy all members of the family. There is a strong Youth and Juniors section.  It is possible to sail your own boat or use your paddleboard, kayak etc   at anytime.  Boats and boards are available to hire dependant on ability....  New members are always welcome.

 

After careful consideration the MSC GP and Sailing Committees met on Thursday evening (via conference call) to agree our approach over the coming weeks.

We are sure everybody has been following the latest news and guidance regarding Coronavirus and the restrictions necessary in order to delay its spread.

With immediate effect all scheduled events including

 ·         Sunday racing,

 ·         Open meetings,

 ·         Saturday social sailing,

 ·         Clubhouse events

 ·         Use of kitchen and scheduled bar opening

Will be suspended for at least 4 weeks, provisionally restarting on April 12th (although it may be later than this).

 ·         The current race series will be ended now.

 ·         The lake remains open and available for use subject to the usual club bylaws and hence if a group wishes to meet informally and use the lake they are welcome to do so, however         no safety cover will be provided.

We have taken the difficult decision of not scheduling events so that nobody feels they have any obligation to be at the club to fulfil a club duty. Rostering of race and social sailing duties will occur in due course. If anyone wishes to use the lake but does not have a key please contact our membership secretary Leanne (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

The clubhouse will be available to use however members are requested to change at home and generally make minimal use of club facilities to avoid risk of spreading infection.

Membership renewal is due by the end of this month and we encourage members to continue to support MSC and re-join. Exercise and fresh air is good for everyone and normal activities will resume once the current crisis has passed. In addition to the many opportunities to get afloat at MSC we have exciting plans for the future including clubhouse improvements and need your support in order to realise these ideas.

We will be reviewing the situation on a fortnightly basis and will share more details as they become available.

Members should adhere to government/NHS advice and anybody feeling unwell or has been in contact with somebody that is unwell should stay away from the club.

Thanks you all for your continued support and please stay safe.
