Please read this message from John Owens on behalf of the MYA SD Committee:
The MYA SD Committee fully recognises that we all want to get back sailing, but only if it can be conducted in a safe and controlled manner without putting our members at risk. A quick look at our membership shows that a lot of us fall into the “at risk” category and so this must be taken into consideration when arranging anything at your club.
Roadmaps for a phased exit from full Covid-19 lockdown have been published. The roadmaps and timelines differ between UK countries. The Scottish government roadmap was published on Thursday 21st May 2020. In response, the MYA SD Committee has put together the attached document acknowledging the MYA position and the ramifications of the Scottish government’s roadmap for radio and free sailing in Scotland. It is recognised that Northern Ireland is part of the MYA Scottish District but the government rules may differ.
Please carefully read the SD Covid-19 document on the District Committee page and follow the guidance provided. Club Committees should develop and share their own risk assessment with their club members.
Please look after yourselves and each other.
John Owens on behalf of the MYA SD Committee (Brian Summers, Steve Taylor and Cathy Reid)
