Our toilets are open for one person at a time, racing is back on, the club is closed but bar is open with drinks brought to your table on the patio.

"Hanging rooms" is that where those who failed to turn up for duties used to be taken, before the world went mad and normal sailing flew out the window

No use of the changing rooms. 
One person at a time in the loos with a one way system. 
Catering (Wych's Kitchen, well done lads) delivering food and drink to socially distanced tables on the patio. 
Social sailing and racing all good.

Our changing room is limited to 5 persons, except as some wag noted when I'm in there and it's only 4 . so 5 won't matter.

Same at Carsington.  Water open to members.  Galley closed, bar closed, changing room closed.  Drinks available on the terrace.   Strange, as a neighbour who plays golf says their bar and changing rooms are fully open.. the bar is a Pub after all and biology apparently works differently in pubs.

Notts County changing rooms are closed. Toilet cubicles open, one in one out. I think this was to free up the disabled toilet more than anything, as until recently that was the only toilet in use.

Bar closed, catering just started but the whole clubhouse is now a one-way queuing system for the galley, no eating or gathering indoors at all.

Toilets only at our club too. Means we have to take the camper van instead of the more economical car but at least we have all the necessary.

Changing in a van or pop up tent? wet-suits are difficult enough to get off, not to mention damp, highly tensioned surgical supports.
Driving home with salty nether regions? Some fetishists might approve I suppose.
One loo available? It'll do but the experience does rather depend on who's just been in there. A lot of folk like to have a curry on Saturday night.
Catering not available?  We've had some but it's gone again.
Sailing with below par courses because of limited volunteers?

Not sure how long this can be sustained. Of course the real die hards will sail on a puddle if it's the only thing available but what percentage of the membership are that committed.

What does "Social Membership" mean now? It's a large chunk of the membership for many clubs.

What can a club do? Memberships were already in decline before the pandemic.

Any Exec coms discussing strategies to combat these problems?
