Club Grounds Reopen

Good news for our members!
We are pleased to announce that the grounds of Carrickfergus Sailing Club will reopen to members, effective from tomorrow, Saturday 13th June. The gates will initially be unlocked from 10am to 6pm. The gate should remain closed over for now so please open and close over again on arrival, but do not lock. When on club grounds please adhere to social distancing guidelines, i.e. 2 metres apart from anyone who is not from your household, and not in groups larger than 10. Please be mindful when in contact with any hard surfaces and we recommend you bring hand sanitizer, wipes and other PPE as required, to mitigate passing on any infection. Please dispose of any rubbish, including PPE responsibly.
The health and safety of our members remains our priority and we ask that any activity is carried out in  a conservative and considerate manner to help safeguard public health and not put any additional pressure on the emergency services.

There are just a few final items to be completed by the Contractor on the slipway and a few bits and pieces to ensure the boatpark is safe for use BUT we are planning to have the slipway available for use w/c 22nd June. While awaiting completion of the slipway, the Committee have been working on a “Back on the Water Plan” and a further note to members will issue next week outlining those measures being put in place to get back on the water and the guidelines to keep everyone safe.
Once again we would like to thank members for their patience and please bear with us as we restore your services in a managed and controlled way.
