    Dear LLSC Member,

    Since the Scottish Government announced that all of Scotland would move beyond Level 0 on 9th August, the committee have been reviewing the government advice and that of RYA Scotland. Please familiarise yourself with the below information before visiting the club, and pay particular attention to the details around the use of spaces and the need to wear masks. We feel that this guidance is the best balance to allow members to use the club, with minimal risk, and considering that there are now only 6 weekends left in the planned sailing season.

    Use of Spaces

    • The Dining/Kitchen area will remain closed, other than by prior agreement from the committee for use at formal club events.
    • Changing Rooms and Toilets may be used by up to three people at a time, but we would encourage where possible changing to take place in cars or caravans. All doors and windows to remain open.
    • Race Office should be accessed by duty RO and Assistant ROs only, with access where possible via the side door.
    • Recreational spaces in the clubhouse remain closed.

    The Canoe shed may be used fo socialising, but we ask members to follow some basic principles:

    • Both external doors must remain open when in use
    • If the space is busy, please find an alternative location to socialise using your own judgement
    • The club cleaners have been asked to clean the canoe shed instead of the clubhouse recreational spaces, so please keep it tidy and remove all rubbish when you leave

    Please use the provided wipes and sprays to clean surfaces and contact points you use.

    Masks should be worn indoors when moving between spaces, e.g. when accessing toilets and changing rooms

    The gate should remain closed and unlocked when the club is in use, but locked between 6pm and 9am at weekends and at all times during the week.

    Please remember to follow the previously communicated procedures for signing in guests to the club, in order to comply with Track and Trace requirements. This is a simple process, where you complete card (found in the hallway outside accessible toilet) for any guests attending the club, and put it in the marked box provided.

    It is likely that specific additional guidance will be given on a temporary basis for open events such as Dinghy Weekend, Bart’s Bash and Keelboat Weekend. This will be covered during the event briefings.

    You can view the updated risk assessment here.

    We hope to see as many people as feel safe doing so, getting out of the water for the remainder of the seasons. However we ask people not to come to the club if feel unwell, and to notify the secretary if you feel unwell after being at the club. Please stay safe, protect others and minimise the spread of the virus.
