As you know this season’s sailing has been drastically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown restrictions. As the restrictions have eased in recent weeks, Horning SC is taking a phased approach to our return to sailing and racing. Recent trials of a limited racing programme have been well received and we hope that members will continue to enjoy the opportunity to get back to competitive activity.
The current situation has changed all of our lives, and as we take gradual steps towards the new normal we still need to keep some changes to the racing programme and practices in place. We hope you understand our reasons for doing so. We would like to emphasise that everything we are doing is working within the constraints of government guidelines, and our primary aim is to keep our members and the wider community safe. So we are continuing to follow the RYA’s Guiding Principles at all times, which are to be considerate and conservative and to follow government advice.
We are mindful that we are still in the middle of a pandemic and would like to emphasise a few points:
