CVSS Trustees and Volunteers have taken every reasonable precaution to minimise the risks of Coronavirus COVID-19 through careful planning, risk assessments, training and procedures but this cannot guarantee safety for sailors, visitors or volunteers. People taking part in activities do so at their own risk and neither CVSS nor its Trustees accept any responsibility whatsoever for any COVID-19 related consequences of people volunteering or participating in CVSS activities or being present at Bury Lake.

Risk Assessment

CVSS provides opportunities for disabled people to sail using safe and simple equipment.
CVSS is not a sailing school and no formal training is offered, although volunteers are present to give guidance.
A safety boat with qualified driver is also present.
Although CVSS operates with detailed safety procedures, sailors and/or their carers accept and share in the inherent risks associated with this water sport.
