Milton Keynes Sailability Update
Updated 14th Oct
Sadly the season is now over for us for this year. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak we have not been able to organise many sessions. However some of the volunteers have been out on Pippa for a few sails and to get familiar.
We have written new guidelines for Covid-19 and these are now part of our document library. This means that when we return to sailing next year that things will be different. We have followed a lot of the RYA guidelines in preparing to return to the water. However these will now be used to help us next year.
Whilst I would like to hope that cure will be found for Covid-19, however my feeling is that it will be with us for a while yet. Over the winter we will prepare for the next year with some volunteer training sessions. We will also reach out to more groups to get them involved.
It is sincerely hoped that we can sail next year, and look out for our proposed sailing dates when we will be back from March next year.
My name is Tim Harpin and I am Chairman at Milton Keynes Sailability. It is part of my role to organise and administer our sailing days. I have several years sailing experience including racing our Challenger tri-marans in UK and international events. There is a great deal of effort from our committee that goes into running the club and it is my responsibility to ensure that we meet our obligations to our members. It can be challenging but is always interesting to be involved in the variety of activities of our club. We are continually trying to develop and expand what we do and I always welcome input from members.
