Exhibitors are being asked to vote on what they want to do in relation to the Dinghy show - as a member of the class association we have been contacted by the RYA and asked to vote. In an on-line pole of the larger exhibitors the option that secured the most votes was to cancel the show for 2021, other options were to put down a small deposit and hope it can be held or put it back to June and hold it then. Lots of pros and cons of all options!

Perhaps a group of shows, set at various locations round the country, each of the major classes that exhibit at main show could do something, smaller classes could group together, make it a sailing event, large marquees, invite retailers, have it over several weekends.

If I recall the choices were as follows; hold the event as planned and risk losing deposit, cancel event for 2021 or push it back to June 2021 as it can then be held outside if needed. I think most people did not want to push to June as people will be off sailing and it is then too close to the next event in early 2022. Most seemed resigned to just canning the event as the risk of cancellation is high considering the time of year and the chance of continued lock downs

Hysteria.. Hold it but insist everyone is masked - simples.

Following the case of the restaurant where 32 diners with no masks were infected, but working staff (masked) not.

Kind of too obviously simple for this Clusterf**k of a civil service.

Nor does it comfort me to know we're being shepherded by bedwetters with a similar mindset to your own.

Do some research. Check the German Tradeshow Industry.

I was in Germany last week, you cannot move without wearing a mask. You may sit to eat, but get up to go to the washroom and you'll be stopped if your not wearing one, makes you wonder how they're handling the situation so much better than us.

Before you start with the (they offer no protection) google Cambridge Mask. Read a bit further than the Grauniad.. https://elemental.medium.com/the-most-likely-way-youll-get-infected-with-covid-19-30430384e5a5

'World beating' and  'World Class' approach.  Now when exactly did I hear that phrase over here ?   Or was it something more to do with 'organisational skills' and breweries ..... ?

Tends to put you off, when in the first couple of paragraphs a expert says 'HUMUNGOUS' then keeps repeating himself, telling people touching infected surfaces isn't so bad, but perhaps best to wash your hands anyway.

Does no harm to apply the 'precautionary principle' in novel potentially dangerous situations such as we face today.  Far from perfect knowledge exists yet but a lot of learning is inevitably happening every day and every month.  Wearing face masks AND taking real care with possible surface transmission, plus socially distancing are not mutually exclusive approaches nor are these the only precautions worth following - by a very long way.  

Want to argue otherwise ?  Fancy yourself as an expert ?  Yup - some approaches may not provide much benefit but unless they are likely to make matters worse,  until there is near perfect knowledge,  you are simply gambling with the safety of others or even yourself.   Or do you just feel lucky ?
