Just doesn't look appropriate.

Correct, it looks arrogant, but given the etiquette of this forum I'll stop short of saying it is arrogant.

Yes, you do tend to get savaged now, a lot of humour disappeared.

Hey Jimbo, good to hear from you again. Sorry to see whatís happening in Spain, I hope youíre all okay.

Just yesterday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
From this evening I must give the British people a very simple instruction - you must stay at home.
Because the critical thing we must do is stop the disease spreading between households.

That is why people will only be allowed to leave their home for the following very limited purposes:

shopping for basic necessities, as infrequently as possible;
one form of exercise a day - for example a run, walk, or cycle - alone or with members of your household;
any medical need, to provide care or to help a vulnerable person; and
travelling to and from work, but only where this is absolutely necessary and cannot be done from home.
Thatís all - these are the only reasons you should leave your home.

You should not be meeting friends. If your friends ask you to meet, you should say No.

Sailing is clearly not a form of exercise that he is condoning - you canít go out your front door and straight for a sail (unless you are extremely lucky) and the potential rescue scenarios are a clear risk. The Lawn Tennis Association have insisted all affiliated clubs shut down entirely - you canít even just have a quick game with your partner at 7am. Itís a shame the RYA havenít been as decisive for sailing.

Plus 1 A2Z, no ambiguity in walking, running or cycling.

Cycling I can see issues with. You can cover long distances at high speed, and there are still plenty of Vans on the road to cut you up.

Zoom does seem to be getting plenty of use 

 for a committee meeting  a  group video chat on facebook is more than adequate

Kids are going to ask if we have ever been abroad, because mass travel is not going to be allowed for a very long time, people will have money for sailing, we are fortunate to have our coastline and all our lakes, will probably be a boom time for less main stream sports.

That's optimistic thinking Robert, personally I see travel bouncing back quite rapidly.  There's more invested in it!

And thanks A2Z - we're fine for now, concentration of cases isn't around our city thankfully.  I also think we've probably already had it in our family, or an early strain of it.  Half the kids in the school went down with a mystery virus in Jan / Feb, plus I was snowboarding in Ischgl the exact same weekend as this poor chap and felt particularly shoddy afterwards for a few days.

might be an option for clubs and classes to keep some social contact....

ideas could be boat maintenance sessions, maybe a rules refresher chat or just a few cans of beer together. 

As well of course as the boring stuff like AGMs and asking the vital questions around re-allocating those people skipping duties due to lockdown.
