nclknmclmcv Following the UK governments guidance today (16th March) regarding escalation of the response to the Covid-19 virus spread, we have reviewed our clubs response. This means significant changes to our operations.

Clearly the situation globally and locally is very disturbing and as an Exec Team we have to make decisions in line with current advice on behalf of our members to ensure that everyone remains as safe as possible on our watch.

Therefore with regret and with immediate effect ALL club organised activities will be suspended until further notice.

This includes:

– All group activities; Juniors, Ladies, Model Boats and Sailability

– All Club Racing: Sundays and Wednesdays

– All Open Events

– All training Courses

– All Club Duties

– Work Parties

– Face to face meetings

The club will remain open at this time for member enjoyment although no organised Safety Boat cover will be provided and “Social Distancing” must be maintained. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and advise you accordingly of any further measures that we may need to take as the situation unfolds further.

Our thoughts are with you and your families at this most difficult of times.

Stay safe and well

Tony Jackson (Commodore) and the Whitefriars Exec Team

Due to COVD-19 all organised racing is postponed for the foreseeable future
