It' been wonderful to see so many smiling faces in the first couple of weeks of our return to the water. We've enjoyed some lovely weather, some good wind and a little rain too but that hasn't got in the way of you all enjoying your favourite sport!
Safety of all of our members and visitors remains paramount in our battle to overcome the pandemic. Although restrictions around the world are being relaxed, the threat remains! so please continue to observe the clubs temporary operating procedure and help yourself and others to stay safe!
May I please also remind you that although the water is very appealing during this warm weather, swimming is not permitted in any part of Foremark reservoir. A bouyancy aid must be worn on the water or on the pontoon at all times and you must have adequate insurance for your boat, windsurf board or SUP before going on the water.
Under our temporary Covid-19 operating system, we are unfortunately unable to run our popular beginner summer training courses. Those that had already booked have been informed and will be contacted again as and when we are able to resume our training. Our Discover sailing open day has also unfortunately had to be postponed. We hope to run this at a later date if restrictions allow.
We have had quite a number of enquiries from people expressing an interest in joining the club and getting out on the water to sail, windsurf or Paddleboard. I am delighted to say, that we are now accepting new members. membership information can be found here. Becoming a club member provides a cost effective way of getting out on the water. Club members enjoy discounts on all of our training courses as well as low priced hiring of club equipment. New members, either individuals or families are always welcome! You'll find all of our members a really friendly, welcoming and supportive bunch.
The bar, galley and changing facilities at the club remain closed at the moment but our committee members are working hard to resume full operations as soon as restrictions allow.
To all of our existing members, thank you again for your support and cooperation during these difficult times. For those that are still shielding or are unable to get back on the water, we all send our very best wishes and hope to see you all again soon!
