 Dear Club Member,

It is a great relief to know that we can now put our sailing and motorboats back in the water even though there are some restrictions with staying overnight and social distancing.

It will be incumbent on all members to obey the lockdown rules which implies that for those households of one will be single handed.

The committee will continue to meet via zoom video conference and all social activities will continue to be cancelled until further notice.

For those sailing we encourage to be in communication and pre-arranged if sailing in company.

It is unlikely that racing will resume until August and it is too early to know what restrictions may be in place for the East Coast Cruise.

We intend to make the Anchorage available for individuals and controlled numbers of sailing in company and will be writing guidelines or procedures in line with risk assessments. The Anchorage will remain closed until these procedures are in place. We will also be needing a work party to make the moorings upstream of the starting box accessible.

It will be great to be back sailing, but I would still prefer the return of the hire boats and no Coronavirus.

It was the confirmation of changing boat ownerships that reminded me that I was sitting on a log from Simon Gould who had joined me on New Horizons first week of his first ECC cruise and that we now had a story that a first time on the ECC can lead to taking his whole family on a Competent Crew Course and since bought a Pegasus 800, Caballero.

It is also good to see that Peggotty is to remain in the club. I am looking forward now to seeing all the new owners on home waters in spite of being tame stuff compared with Tom’s early exploits.

Please let us know of what your intentions are for the rest of the season. Take care and all the best

Take care and all the best,

Michael Sparrow  Commodore

Looking back to better times
