COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update for SWSC

Friday, 20 March 2020

Following the week’s, and particularly this afternoon’s developments, Scammonden Water Sailing Club has regrettably come to the conclusion that, with immediate effect, all organised activities at SWSC including social, racing and training are postponed until further notice.
UK Government information

However, in support of the health and wellbeing advice issued by the UK government it is agreed that ad-hoc sailing can still continue at Scammonden Water but it is essential that all sailors comply with government guidelines on frequent hand washing and social distancing. This must include on and around the water as well as the OD hut, changing rooms and clubhouse facilities.

Ad-hoc sailing sessions will be communicated using our club member’s WhatsApp groups. If sailing is to take place a manned safety boat must be launched and ready.

Please act responsibly and follow government advice. If you are displaying any symptoms or believe you may be a risk, follow the self-isolation process and do not visit the club.

Many thanks for your support and understanding and let us all look forward to enjoying the activities of the club again when this situation has ended, hopefully soon!
