COVID Update 2nd Jan 2021

Hello Swanage Sailing Club member,

Swanage Sailing Club is now in tier 3 and we just want to explain the parameters the club has to follow set out by the government. Tier 3 means we have to shut the bar and galley until further notice. The clubhouse, beach and sailing will remain open following the government guidelines below:

  • No members from a tier 4 area should attend Swanage Sailing Club for sailing or socialising.
  • If you are coming for essential work for the club then this needs to be organised with the Rear Commodore.
  • No meeting socially in the clubhouse with anybody you do not live with or have a support bubble with.
  • A maximum of 6 people can meet outside as long as social distancing is followed; this includes children of any age.
  • A face mask and hand washing/sanitising need to be worn and done when you enter the Club House.
  • Maximum of 8 people in the changing rooms at any time and social distancing and face covering need to be followed.

The Management and Sailing Committees are working hard to get 2021 off to the best start we can with a full program of racing, cruising, social sailing and training.I wish you all happy New Year and look forward to when we can return to the new normal.

Many Thanks

Phil Palmer
SSC Commodore

CHRISTMAS APPEAL FOR VOLUNTEERS

SSC bar and galley opening times. – DOWN TO YOU TO DECIDE— ACTION needed NOW

It is planned to open the bar and galley every Sunday from 12-00 till 14-30 but to do this we do need to get support from members to help in the form of volunteering to help out.

There are 13 sessions between 4th January and 29th March 2021 so we only need 26 volunteers, one a week to run the bar and one a week to help in the galley. These duties are referred to as house duties.

As you all know every club member is expected to volunteer for at least one or two house duties a year so please consider helping us out now and getting your duty out of the way nice and early.

If you volunteer for galley duty then Steve (Chef) will guide you through what help he needs. It will likely consist of taking orders for food and keeping the dish washer full.

If you volunteer for the bar and need guidance we will provide someone to show you what to do.

Current Covid guidance is that you wear a mask. Full face shields will be provided by the SSC.

PLEASE volunteer if you feel safe as without volunteers we cannot guarantee to continue to provide bar and/or galley.

We are hoping to set up Sailing Club Manager to enable recording of duties but until that happens please volunteer by contacting me on gregvaughn44@hotmail.com or tel 07860298233

LOOKING FOR A CHALLENGE IN 2021?

Are you looking for a way to spend some of your time in 2021 and would like to get involved in the club more? We are looking for volunteers to assist in internal communication with members such as queries on membership renewals and duties. This is your chance to get to know more of your fellow members (virtually until restrictions are lifted) and help out at the same time. If you are confident in communicating by email and zoom and would like to know more please contact honsec@swanagesailingclub.org.uk
