Inclusion Awareness Campaign

These are difficult times for all our sailors and volunteers alike while we have been unable to sail.

We have been made aware of some useful resources for those being shielded or feeling socially isolated and alone while we have been unable to meet up and sail.

Deborah the mother of one of our Saturday sailors has provided us with details of a website (Jweb) and a number of blogs which might help some of our sailors to feel less isolated.

Facebook Page and New Facebook Group for Volunteers

Our Facebook page has been in existence for some years and is our public Facebook presence.  This is now regularly updated with updates and relevant news.The page can be found at . . . . .

https://www.facebook.com/cvssailors

In addition, we have started a Facebook Group. The existing Facebook page is linked to the new group, which means that as it is updated, the latest news will automatically be visible to group members.

Volunteers required - Can you help?

We urgently need volunteers due to the increase in the number of sailors enjoying sailing with CVSS.

  • You don’t need any previous experience with disabled people
  • You don’t need any previous sailing experience as training is freely provided
  • Support is required every day we sail during the season - Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays

Love to hear from you.

Coronavirus Covid-19 A message from our Chairman

Given the current situation, the Trustees have decided to suspend the Season for the foreseeable future.
The Training Days planned for 29 and 30 April, the Open Days on 23 April and 21 May and the Leaders meeting on 18 April are all cancelled.
The Trustees will keep the situation under review and, if it is possible to commence sailing later in the year, we will notify you. The important thing is that everyone stays safe and hopefully we can be sailing before too long.
Mike Marcus - Chairman

At CVSS our priority is the health and safety of our all our members and sailors. We would ask that everyone follows the government guidance about how best to cope during this difficult period. Information about the virus and how to protect yourself can be found here.
