CSC Update

Good news this week, the NI Health Minister eased Coronavirus Restrictions, permitting Outdoor Activity, including “some water activity”. The RYA has interpreted this to permit all forms of boating activity, including sailing, but only when safely:

  • undertaken by individuals or members of the same household; 
  • there is no sharing of hard surfaces (including all types of boat);
  • public health guidance is followed at all times;
  • strict social distancing can be undertaken.

The health and safety of our members is our priority and we ask that any activity be carried out in a conservative and considerate manner to help safeguard public health and not put any additional pressure on the emergency services.   

Please note there is restriction on the number of people who may gather outdoors from separate households of six (adhering to Social Distancing).    

The slipway contractor remains onsite and while the final works complete the boatpark remains closed. It is hoped that the works will complete over the next few weeks. However if anyone needs to physically access the boats that are not within the contractors compound in the short term please contact yard@carrickfergussc.orgwith some advance notice for access. We request that if you are in the grounds of CSC that you adhere to social distancing, i.e. 2 metres apart from anyone who is not from your household.

Please note that the Clubhouse and Boatshed remain closed and there is no access to toilets or to water. Anyone visiting their boats should ensure they have adequate sanitiser and PPE. Please DO NOT come onto Club premises if you or a member from your household are presenting with any symptoms of Covid-19.

We would like to thank everyone for their patience, please bear with us as we try to restore as many services and facilities as we can in a managed and controlled way.
