Friends of CVSS 200 Club September Draw

CVSS have been able to restart sailing and everyone is enjoying the opportunity. We had a lovely day sailing today as did the group last Saturday.

Your support has enabled disabled sailors to have a sail free of charge this season to encourage them to rejoin and enjoy the outdoors.

I am pleased to inform you that the September draw has taken place and the results were:

1st David Brown £50

2nd Martin Power £30

3rd Paula Hammond £15

Congratulations to the winners!

The next draw will be in December.

Sailing returns!

The long awaited return to sailing took place on Saturday 4th and Wednesday 8th September. Both were glorious days for sailing. It was great to be back!!

Preparing for a return to sailing!

It’s not long until we restart sailing in the second week of September!

A team of volunteers prepared and rigged the boats today ready for the start! 

Also on 6th September volunteers took part in training which covered the new COVID procedures, as well as safeguarding, rigging and using the hoist. It was great to see all the volunteers again.

AGM Chairman's Report

CVSS AGM 28th April 2021

This Chairman’s Report is much more upbeat than the previous one and I am excited at what is to come. Having completed a COVID risk assessment I am pleased to say that, all being well, there will be some sailing this season.

We are planning to run a series of sessions for volunteers from mid-May to train them in the protocols that will be required to sail safely once restrictions are hopefully lifted at the end of June. If the restrictions are lifted as expected, we will be offering limited sailing on Wednesdays and Saturdays in July and August. If the restrictions remain lifted, we are planning to re-open fully in September until the end of the season. I for one am delighted at the possibility of returning to the water.

As you can appreciate, there will be some changes in the way we operate and with your co-operation we trust that you will still get as much enjoyment from sailing as pre-COVID.

We will be sending out fuller details in due course so watch this space!
