Thankfully restrictions are easing a little from December 2nd and tomorrow night we have the first ever MSC AGM via Zoom so please do join and your evening will fly by! We'll be talking about this year and plans for next - you should have been sent details on how to join by Sarah.

The good news is that with lockdown ending on-the-water activities can resume with Y&J planned for the next two Saturdays, racing to restart on Sunday 6th, the AI and PB2 training can continue and we'll have the usual Christmas series. For anybody wanting to paddleboard or social sail there will be safety boats on the water for the next 2 weekends whilst the AI and PB2 courses are running. I'm sure there will be a flurry of activities over the next few days and we'll endeavor to get the calendar updated ASAP.

We ask that everybody familiarize themselves with the government tier rules and abide by them.

The following club restrictions will apply:-

- When you arrive at the lake sign in using either the NHS C19 QR code OR with the club QR code OR in the sign-in book on the veranda.

- Please wear a face covering inside unless seated in the bar or teaching.

- NO groups of more than 6 people.

- Please continue to avoid using the changing rooms unless absolutely necessary - try to arrive ready to go onto the water. However if you are cold and wet and need to use them, then please do so. We request that there are no more than 12 people in the gents changing room, 4 in the ladies and please open windows to ensure ventilation.

- Keep to the one way systems in place. Use the main clubhouse entrance for toilets and changing rooms and enter the bar from the veranda.

- Use hand sanitizer when entering the building - there are automatic dispensers at the main, bar and wet-room entrances

- The members kitchen remains closed

- The bar will be open on Thursdays and Sundays however alcoholic drinks can only be served with food so please keep an eye out for emails from Fiona and Gail. Soft drinks, tea and coffee will be available however only the same household/support groups may share tables inside. If you live in a tier 3 area you are welcome to use the lake but unfortunately cannot socialise.either inside or out
