[Page last revised 1 April 2021]
Government's Spring 2021 Road Map was published on February 22 and we now have revised our Policy and risk assessments to reflect the changes. Appendices A & B in the Policy provide relevant extracts from the current UK Regulations and Guidance.
WWSC Policy is to comply with all prevailing Regulations and to apply the RYA's Guiding Principles which are:
- We will always follow Government advice
- We will, as a boating community, take a considerate and conservative approach:
- Considerate: be mindful of the potential impact that you could have on other water users and do not place unnecessary extra strain on the RNLI or emergency services.
- Conservative: help to minimise risk by taking an extra conservative approach to your boating.
When we plan any Club organised events we will adhere to this Policy.
The main impact of the Regulations and Guidance on WWSC activities
The way each step of the Road Map impacts on WWSC activities is summarised in the Table below (extracted from Policy):
The Club asks all our members to adhere scrupulously to the rules and, if in any doubt, to err on the side of caution. If we are to be able to follow the Road Map out of the current restrictions we must all do our bit to help bring the spread of the virus under control.
You can read the full version of the Policy with its Appendices explaining the Government Guidance on this web page below or download it here WWSC Covid Policy - Issue 8.0 and read it at your leisure. The Contents page has hyperlinks to make it easier to find specific guidance.
