In light of the developing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the York RI Sailing Club committee has taken the difficult decision that all club events, including all sailing activities, are cancelled until the end of April 2020. This includes the GP14 Open meeting scheduled for 18 April. In addition, we have cancelled the “discover sailing” open evening on Wednesday 29 April, the open day planned for Sunday 3 May, and the RYA Level 1 course scheduled to start on Friday 8 May.
If you have a boat stored at the club you may go and tend to it as necessary, but on any visit to club premises you must follow current government guidelines on social distancing.
We will review the situation in early April, and at frequent intervals after that, and we will inform you of any changes to the policy as the situation develops.
We very much regret having to take this decision, and we are aware that this year’s sailing season will inevitably be cut short – but we very much hope that you will nonetheless support the club in these difficult times by paying your subscriptions for 2020.
Stay safe, and keep well
The YRISC Committee
