CORONAVIRUS MESSAGE – 18th MAY 2020
First, and most importantly, we hope that all members and friends of SCYC are in good health and remain so throughout this crisis.
The SCYC clubhouse remains closed, and all waterside and shoreside activities are suspended. They will remain so until the easing of Government restrictions allows operations to resume.
If at all possible it remains our hope that we be able to operate some form of summer sailing programme. Whilst there is very little clarity over plans for the easing of lockdown it is clear that many restrictions will remain in place which make it impossible for us to host large-scale events over the coming months, leading us to the following decisions.
Dinghy Week and Mirror Week
It is with huge regret and disappointment that we have taken the unavoidable decision to cancel Dinghy Week and Mirror Week. These events are part of the DNA of the Club and it is always a great pleasure to welcome so many sailors and their families to the Club and see familiar faces year after year. We hope that everyone gets next year’s events in their diaries. Dinghy Week, celebrating its 50th Anniversary next year, will be one not to miss.
Keelboat Week and Club racing programme
Clearly we will not be operating a full summer sailing programme. However if there is any easing of restrictions that allows some form of programme to be operated we will aim to work within the constraints imposed and organise something. All participants in the Club’s racing programme, and a significant proportion of those in Keelboat Week, are Club members who would in all likelihood be in Abersoch if any easing of restrictions allows. We do not feel, therefore, that a decision is as pressing as for DW and MW and will monitor the situation. Everyone will understand that the chances are slim but we will continue to hope that an improvement in the Covid stats allows the safe resumption of some sort of limited activity.
We will keep the website updated as and when we have any further information that is relevant to our Club’s operations.
In the meantime, stay safe, and we look forward to welcoming you all back to the Club when it is safe to re-open.
