The lockdown seems to be reducing transmission of Covid. The number of people ignoring the " rules" is reducing and the parks are full of people walking and not partying.

And then , we seem to have clubs allowing members to sail.

Ok the risk is fairly low- but apart from the damage this is doing to the reputation of sailing- why have sailors chosen not to follow instructions to save lives?

It seems so widespread that I am loath to start by highlighting the Midland clubs that I am aware of.

It would seem to be standard procedure for the club to believe they are absolving themselves by closing or part closing the clubhouse and then say they are leaving members to free sail of their own choice.

My personal view is that clubs should be giving a stronger lead than this.

Or is it just webmasters not updating their websites?

Both mine couldn't wait to lock down and lock us out, double lock on the lake and codes changed at the coast.

The Solent has been empty over the weekend, I saw a couple of SUP yesterday but no sailing boats.
Their has been reports of the odd windsurfer and kite boarder but nothing like normal.
 Marinas are closed and Harbour masters are apparently not letting people go out the harbours..
Whilst our club is closed you could change and launch on the public slipway, but to my knowledge nobody has.

Perhaps I have just stumbled across the only two clubs getting it wrong

Hope so !

I am hoping that this discussion will circulate and get some action from the ( I hope) few transgressors.

Although it does not specifically say it on our website, I can assure you that our Midlands based sailing club at Leamington Spa is well and truly locked down. No sailing until it is all over.
