Latest guidelines and details of the next Sailing session on
Tuesday 21st July at 18:00 hrs.
Volunteer support crew needed
Guidance from RYA Scotland is available on their website https://www.rya.org.uk/scotland/representation/Pages/Return-to-Boating.aspx and distils the raft of guidance documents from the Scottish Government and sportscotland into information relevant to clubs, training centres and individuals across Scotland’s boating community. They have been approved by sportscotland on behalf of the Scottish Government and I hope they prove helpful. Participants should be aware that the easing of restrictions does not mean that all facilities will open immediately.
Our priority is the safety of participants, staff and volunteers.
Gairloch Boat Club Sailing: Phase 1
With all this talk of easing restrictions on our usual activities, the Gairloch Boat Club has been busy on your behalf, looking at all the advice & guidance.
The official guidelines can be viewed on these links:-
RYA Club Guidance Covid19 v 2.2:-
RYA Scotland General Guidance for boating activity Phase 1:-
In order to ensure social distancing between sailors, it may be necessary to limit the numbers.
Before we issue any new Policies detailing how we can get back on the water & under what strict guidelines, we think it is very important to ask this question of you all:-
Bearing in mind all the current guidelines & severe restrictions surrounding Phase 1, how keen are you to get sailing again as part of an official Club activity?
We ask that you let us know as soon as you can & certainly by Saturday 6th June.
If there are sufficient numbers wanting to take part it is unlikely that the first Club Sailing Session can be before Sunday 14th June.
In the meantime, if individuals, with their own boat, wish to go sailing at their own risk & without any Sailing Support from the Club & without any access to the Club House, you are free to do so.

The GBC Committee is anxious to keep you all as up to date as we can, concerning the Covid-19 Outbreak.
We will soon be making plans for what needs to be done to prepare the Club, once restrictions are eased. These plans will probably be on a staged basis.
