> We will accept all cancellations arising from virus concerns (whether due to Government instruction, marina policy or of the member who has booked with us). This is regardless of when/whether current national restrictions are eased.
> We will return any payments made to date if charterers or skippered charter berth takers so wish (or we will give credit for re-booking). Contact us if you want payment returned. If we do not hear from you and the date of your booking passes without our being able to make the yacht available, we will hold the credit for your next trip. This is our "no-go, no-cost" undertaking.
> Bookings for 2021 season now being taken.
> We will continue to review the implications of both national and local rules. We will endeavour to keep you up to date with our interpretation of the situation.
> If you are not a member but are interested in future sailing opportunities, drop us a line and we will keep your details on record to contact you when things straighten out a bit.
Summer relaxation of lockdown rules in the government meant some members were able to go sailing. Our thanks go to all who were able to support preparation of the fleet.
The variation in regional rules meant that take-up was not available to all and we met our commitment to return payments where members were unable to take up bookings due to changing circumstances.
The season has now ended and we need to look to how we manage the winter work programme. There is no formal plan as yet but please remember that no member that does not feel comfortable with undertaking work should feel unduly pressured even if they have customarily done specific tasks in previous years.
Due to the nature of our operations, we cannot take responsibility for ensuring compliance with national or applicable local rules but, if members are willing to volunteer to assist with the winter programme, we need to be clear that it is the member's responsibility to comply with the guidance as at the time of attending the boat.
All dates for "available charters" are as we know them right now. The situation is obviously changing day-by-day - we will try to keep everyone informed of any changes as and when we know their impact.
We will continue to monitor the situation and will keep you up to date as things develop.
