Latest: Rigging out Cancelled
The Flag Officers and Management Committee have been closely monitoring the developing situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the UK to understand how this affects us, our members, and our Club.
Yesterday, the Prime Minister gave the following advice:
"…now is the time for everyone to stop non-essential contact with others and to stop all unnecessary travel. We need people to start working from home where they possibly can. And you should avoid pubs, clubs, theatres and other such social venues."
As a response to this guidance, we have taken the incredibly difficult decision to postpone the start of the Horning Sailing Club season for 2 weeks in the first instance. Therefore, there will be no racing programme run on Sunday 22nd and 29th March 2020 and the Clubhouse facilities will be closed. Of course, you will still be able to gain access to the island and your boats during this time for recreational sailing if you wish, however, we do ask that you always follow the Government guidance.
This is an incredibly fast-changing situation and I want to reassure you that the Management Committee will be regularly reassessing the guidance provided by the NHS and Government. As and when we know more, we will update you on the situation.
I hope that you understand the very difficult decision that we as a Management Committee have had to make. Ultimately, it is your health and wellbeing that is the most important thing to us.
Due to COVID-19, there will be no sailing until further notice
