Update of effect of COVID-19 pandemic on LCSC activities

As you all know our sailing program was seriously interrupted by Covid-19. The Executive Committee have continued to meet, and have been working very hard to establish a mandatory Return To Aquatic Sport Industry Safety Plan that will outline what we must do in order to open up the club and start the new season. Stage 3 restrictions will come into effect on 10th July allowing our AGM to occur with gatherings of up to 100 people, still practising social distancing, but it does not permit buffet style food service and the recommendation is still to avoid non-essential large gatherings, like social get togethers.

Therefore, the Executive Committee have agreed to change the date of the AGM to 12th July 2020 to allow for more adequate social distancing measures amongst members attending the clubhouse once Phase 3 comes into effect. The Agenda will be sent out by 26th June. A list of guidelines on how to attend and conduct this meeting relative to Covid 19 requirements will be sent to members prior to the meeting, followed by all relevant updates about our progress and how we can ‘Return To Sport’ as they happen.

The Presentations for the 2019/20 season will now be held after the AGM on 12th July also and the dinner has been cancelled for this year. A list of Trophy & Prize winners being awarded will be sent out to members shortly. The GM will follow after the presentations.

We anticipate the Black Flag Bar will re-open after 12th July also, but again we must meet mandatory Industry Safety Plans for Bars & Hospitality. And yet another Plan is required for the Canteen which we hope to provide for Allboats. The season is expected to get underway with the Allboats Regatta on 29th & 30th August, and we feel certain the club will be fully compliant with all the Covid 19 Plans by that date.

We still anticipate our Annual Busy Bee prior to that and members will be kept up to date with that closer to the time.
