      Following HM Government’s Instructions regarding Covid-19 Lock-down 2 the attached instructions are issued regarding club sailing

      Ribble Cruising Club’s advice based on the Legal interpretation by the RYA.

      Very little sailing activity is permitted

      ·         Water sports centres must close

      ·         Private Land may not be used for launching

      ·         Private Land Facilities should be closed

      ·         Private Land may not be used for recreation (Angling, Walking, Sailing)

      ·         Dinghy Parks should be closed except for absolutely essential maintenance only (Dinghies should not be removed unless essential)

      ·         Access for Essential Maintenance only may be performed in Marinas / Private Land

      ·         Working Parties are not allowed

      Clubs should be concerned with respect to public perception if something is observed by the public that clubs shouldn’t be doing…

      Apparently Public Slipways may be used by a member of the Public in their own Boat. However You are not permitted to enter a club dinghy park and launch off a public slip!

      Midsummer Barbeque at the dock

      On Friday 21st June, the longest day, the club will be closed as we will be lighting the BBQ at the dock from 6pm. We hope you will come along, bring some food & enjoy a get together around the fire. You can also camp over if you like – remember it’s Lytham Club Day on Saturday! If there are any musicians amongst you, please feel free to bring your instruments and sing & play to your heart’s content – I can’t guarantee we won’t join in though! Of course this event is weather dependent so if it lets us down, we will confirm postponement & the club will be open as usual. Fingers crossed for some summer warmth & sunshine!!
