Sailing and COVID

After conducting a detailed RS Covid-19 Risk Assessment and planning the necessary risk mitigation, Thursday sailing recommenced for Rutland Sailability on Thursday July 30th. 

Whilst we could not promise 100% Covid-19 safe, we did meet the legal definition of a ‘Covid-19 secure’ for an organised outdoor sporting activity.

Unfortunately, to maintain 2 metre social distancing, this had to be restricted to sailors with a disability who could get in & out of a boat independently or assisted by someone from their same household and could confidently sail solo.

We managed to deliver ten RS Sailing Days and 'Lay Up' our boats for the winter before the second shutdown in November.  

This 5 minute video shows how we managed to sail in a Covid-19 secure environment.
