The Committee of Perth Sailing Club hopes this find you well, and that you are looking forward to a further reduction in restrictions, as we welcome some warmer weather.

We have been sailing weather permitting, for a few weeks now, and a number of races have taken place.

The Club has been in regular contact with other Sailing Clubs, to share best practice, to operate to keep our members safe and, in the words of the RYA, "encouraging participants to get back out on the water".

As from Monday 17th May, the Covid-19 Restriction level drops to Level 2, which is a big change for everyone. From that date, we can allow mixed crew in our boats. To date, the Safety Boat has been positioned at the top of the slipway, from Monday, it will be launched and crewed.
The “Field of Play Bubble” is increased to 30 and more than accommodates all attendees at the club, including spectators. We do request that you social distance where necessary, and carry hand sanitiser. No hugging when winning just yet!

We have made one toilet available for use, but unfortunately the changing rooms are not in use, unless someone gets a bit wet and cold. Welfare of our members comes first.

With the nice weather?, we will supply seating for outside, and we should be able to start supplying the half time refreshments soon, even if it is outdoors.
The changing rooms are closed in the meantime, and we have no date as to when this facility will be permitted.

There are a number of personal items left in the changing rooms. If they belong to anyone, please advise a committee member, as they will be disposed of prior to the changing rooms being made available, This includes boat parts and sections.

This weekend sees the Kinnaird series for those a bit more competitive, or for those who, like me, like to follow Andrew and James round the course. Kinnaird is a series of 2 races on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. Let's see if we can get the OOD working hard with the new race recording system.

We have welcomed new participants over the last few weeks, so the club boats have been rigged and are ready to go. For this weekend we have single handers ready, with 3 Feva's, 3 Lasers and a solo all ready for use. From Monday, the double crewed Quests will be available.


Rest assured, as soon as facilities are permitted, they are ready to go.

A First Aid Course is being planned for those who wish to renew their certificate.

Finally, thank you to all those who have identified their road trailers. There are still one or two unidentified, and the committee will be disposing of all excess metal items lying around the site during the next few months.

A number of the Committee Members are trained as "Covid-19" Officers, so if you are in any doubt about things, just ask the OOD or one of the Committee Members.

We look forward to seeing you back at the club in the near future and wish you good health in the meantime.

Kind regards

Doug

Club Secretary
