MKSC – Youth Squad

September 12, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Changing – Clubhouse changing rooms will be available but limited on numbers. I would suggest that we say that the youth need to arrive dressed ready for sailing?
Briefing / Debriefing – Clearly, this can be done outside so children need to be dressed for the weather.
Rigging / Derigging
Own boats: Children (and their parents) rig their own boats and still socially distance.
Club boats: Children (and their parents) rig their own boats and still socially distance. If we come off the water, children need to remember which is their boat.
Obviously, we are all on hand to provide help and support but we are trying to keep socially distanced.
Launching / Retrieving – Parents need to launch/retrieve their own children. Need to brief parents how to launch/retrieve. We need to be mindful about numbers on slipway, etc.
Changing – As above, there are limits on the numbers of children that will be able to enter the changing rooms and there will be other members of the sailing club changing as well. It might be easier for those that live locally to take children home in their sailing kit – where possible.
As you can see, we are asking that parents are more involved and help with the rigging, launching and retrieval. Most of the children should be able to do much of this themselves but they may need support here and there.
We also need to ask you to remain on-site during the session in case of injury or change in the weather.
There may be a galley available but it depends on the numbers of volunteers – so I would suggest that you bring snacks / hot drinks.
Please confirm that you are attending in advance of the session via the Facebook page.
