Return to Sailing Update

So far so good! We are drawing towards the end of the Interim Sailing Programme which was put together to take us from recreational sailing to some assemblage of competitive sailing. As was initially planned we are going to 're-join' the main or original sailing programme from the 5th of September and all of the scheduled races are now live on the Club online calendar. Some changes have been made; mainly in the Dinghy Winter Series where some of the races have been cancelled to ease the volunteer workload. We have also squeezed in the Ladies Race (Class 4&5) and the Bill Harris Trophy (New) (Scows) which will now take place on Bank Holiday Monday (31/8). Please do have a good look at the programme to make sure that you make the most of what is coming up and importantly don't forget the Inter-club Series which starts on Sunday 6th September - a good turnout would great to keep this trophy at Christchurch. Since the initial return to sailing on 14th May various changes have been made to the special rules and restrictions which were initially deemed as required. It is important to know where we stand on these important matters so an 'Update - Return to Sailing' (dated 13th August) has been uploaded to the website Update - Return to Sailing Dinghies v2.15 (002).pdf-

If you wish to partake in Dinghy or Cruiser Sailing you should read this document.

Cruiser Racing Restarts

Cruiser Racing restarts at CSC from the 12 July with the 2 Handed Race: Spurling memorial trophy, (16:00 start) Please remember Social distancing is still in place and Cruiser Skippers should consider measures in relation to their boat, avoiding being face to face whilst on board, avoid having more than one person in the cabin at any time and remember the need for regular hand washing and sanitizing to prevent the spread of Covid-19. As always it is the skippers responsibility to keep their crew safe and the decision to take part is solely theirs, the Class Captain and or sailing Committee may however in cases where social distancing is not being observed exclude a boat from racing or seek to disqualify.

Social Distancing & Slipway Courtesy

As lock down eases we are all enjoying a taste of 'returning to normal'. The re-introduction of racing adds to this sense and is of course very welcome. Please remember however that Social Distancing requirements remain in place and must be sensibly respected while at the Club. A clear 'pinch-point' is the slipway therefore please be patient with others and allow plenty of time to get prepared and out onto the water.

Importantly please also remember that all changing rooms at the Club remain closed and must not be used.
