Covid 19 update 13/5/2020

Dear Members,

Following the governments most recent update which was circulated to you yesterday and the RYA’s most recent guidelines, I have today spoken with the lake wardens. I can confirm that the Royal Windermere Yacht Club’s position has not changed in relation to the application of the guidelines. However, I can confirm, again having spoken to the lake wardens, that you are free to use the lake as long as you adhere to government guidelines re. social distancing,safety etc.
Please be aware that any activity is undertaken at the individuals own risk.
We are in the process of reviewing yesterdays RYA guidance on,  ‘Restarting boating activity and managing Covid-19’, and will update you as soon as we have a plan in place.
Like me, I am sure you are all keen to get back on the water, be it to race or just to re-engage with friends, however we need to ensure that everybody continues to say safe and well.

Best wishes,

Amanda
