An atmospheric view of the pond and flooded car park on the morning of 19th March 2021 taken by club member David Reith – thanks Dave!

We have received the following from Forestry England.

“Forestry England’s current permission guidance is as follows:  

  • Until 29th March – Existing permitted activities for solo or 1:1 activities only 
  • From 29th March – Existing permitted activities for up to 6 people only 
  • From 17th May – Existing and new permission requests for up to 30 people only 
  • From 21st June – Existing and new permission requests can exceed 30 people but will be based on site capacity. 

So up to 29th March no sailing is permitted then,  from the 29th March the club will have the permit back and we will be able to sail again as a club, but only up to 6 members at a time, this then changes on the 17th May and we are permitted to have up to 30 members.

Of course, this is all dependant on Covid-19 infection rates and continuing Governing guidance.”

Please follow Government guidelines, keep 2 metres apart, etc.

On Friday afternoons from 2nd April for about 6 weeks the Sailing Section will be sailing at the pond.

This is the news we have been waiting for… we will post further information  should anything change.

Keep safe and well, Lorna Soffe (Club Admin Officer)
