Notice of Club Racing and Sailing Instructions
Ryde Model Yacht Club acknowledges the extremely serious nature of the Corona Pandemic and respects the advice on measures essential to minimise the spread. Full details can be found at www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response. In particular those over the age of 70 and those with underlying health problems are advised to avoid any form of social interaction. Everybody in the UK has been asked to stop non-essential contact with other people and avoid all unnecessary travel. This is known as social distancing. We are advised to avoid meetings in confined spaces i.e. clubhouses etc and to maintain a distance of at least 2 metres from other people even when outside.
We enjoy our sport in an extremely public arena. It is essential for the long-term health of RMYC that we are seen to acting in a totally responsible manner and in accordance with the broader interests of the community. I am also mindful of the MYA policy directive issued on 17 March that all MYA events for at least the next 12 weeks must be either cancelled or postponed. All MYA affiliated clubs are asked to follow suit.
The RMYC Sunday racing programme is suspended until further notice. Informal sailing for the purpose of testing and tuning boats may take place. However members are asked to be discrete and not cause any reason for criticising RMYC for acting irresponsibly in allowing a non-essential gathering to take place in a public area.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
