If you have been watching the news today you will be aware that the new Covid guidelines allow for outdoor exercise to take place, but limit such exercise to public spaces only. Consequently the club will need to close until at least Feb 15th and no visits to the club should take place during this period.
As of today there has been no specific confirmation of this position from the RYA, but it seems clear to the committee that, unless there are further clarifying statements to the contrary, the use of private space for exercise is not allowed. The whole of the lake, the grounds and the buildings at the Club are in private ownership.
If there is any change to this conclusion we shall let you know immediately.
Keep safe, and stay healthy.
With kind regards, Will Stevens
