West Mersea Yacht Club – Coronavirus statement updated 16/05/2020

With the lockdown restrictions relaxed and sailing being able to start, the Club has reinstated its launch service. Sadly the Club remains closed, by Government order.

However the launch will only be able to carry a very few passengers, maximum of 4, in order to comply with Government ‘social distancing’ rules. The service is thus likely to have to run at only a fraction of the normal capacity, with members unfortunately having to accept much delay and waiting for the restricted launch service that will inevitably have to be provided. Members are advised that for the time being and until Government restrictions ease, use of their own tenders might well be quicker than waiting for the launch.

The Club committee have therefore decided that, for the time being and whilst the rules are in place, regrettably visitors will not be able to be transported, the launch service will be ‘members only’. Visitors to Mersea are advised to bring their own tenders if they want to get ashore.

We regret the situation but we are sure that members and visitors will understand that our hands are tied by Government rules.

With very best wishes

Tim Wood
