RYA Sailing Update – August 2020
The RYA have said that they have successfully demonstrated to the Government that, due to the low risk of transmission of the virus, teams of sailors from mixed households can be permitted to sail and race together, providing mitigation is in place. Please ensure you read the document so that you are aware of what you need to do to carry this out safely still. Although these changes mean mixed households can begin to sail together, with mitigation in place, our guidelines remain unchanged for the rescue boat - 1 household only.
Also, please be aware that these changes are purely for on the water only. Shore and club based guidelines are still the same as well as recording your details (name, contact no., arrival and departure times) to remain in line with the necessary NHS Test and Trace system.
Many thanks for your cooperation, and happy sailing 😁
