The club is currently working on the basis of one coach to a comfortable number of pre-booked club members. We have had to change our ‘turn up and paddle policy’ so it is now invite only. Sarah D is scheduling departures, to minimise possible contact time on the pontoon.
To reiterate it is ‘no longer turn up’ and join the club Sunday paddle. It is for club members to contact Sarah D to be allocated a paddling slot. Unfortunately we cannot accept guests at this time – hopefully this will change as the need for social distancing reduces – sorry we really would like to but the limitations caused by the virus means we simply cannot at this time
If you are invited to paddle, there is a template in the garage which must be filled in by anyone using a club boat. It simply says which boat you took out so that we can be certain no one else has paddled the same boat in the last 72 hours. When it comes to any club kit please put used kit (buoyancy aids and spraydecks) as far away from the door lock as possible – that way we will all be using different kit. When it comes to paddles we would suggest a wash down to be super safe.
Access key holders are Sarah and Dean.
