Coronavirus and Model Yachting – Update No 1

Please read this message from John Owen, SD Chairman, on behalf of the MYA-SD Committee:-

Yesterday, new government medical advice was issued clearly stating that, “… everyone in the UK should avoid “non-essential” travel for the next 12 weeks.”
  1. Against this background, the MYA-SD Committee and the relevant host clubs have taken the decision to postpone MYA-SD IOM Travellers 1 (hosted by Ayr Bay) and Travellers 2 (hosted by Levenhall). 
    • If possible, these will be re-arranged for later in the year. 
    • It might mean that venues, host clubs, etc. will require adjustment but those future decisions will depend on prevailing conditions and government advice.
    • Other events are currently scheduled in early June and the MYA-SD Committee will continue to actively consider arrangements in light of the prevailing conditions and government advice.
  2. MYA-SD club committees and individual members are advised to carefully consider their sailing activities to ensure the health of all their members.
Please look after yourselves and each other. 
Keep well
Keep up to date with the latest developments and news on the MYA website and forum.

The  MYA has recently published guidance on the coronavirus. John Owen, SD Councillor, has sent the following:

Clubs and individuals, please take action as per the current medical advice regarding coronavirus and sporting events. Should the MYA become aware of any future changes in the medical advice, then this will be forwarded to you.
In the meantime, club committees should update their HSE risk management plans and share with club members.
Hoping everyone keeps well.
