"Just Because You Can Doesn't Mean You Should"
No Change To Coniston Sailing Club
On Monday we contacted all members saying that we were reviewing the implications of the Government's announcement. We have now done a thorough review and the Committee have decided that the right thing to do, right now, is to keep the clubhouse shut, and continue to ask members not to come to Coniston Sailing Club. In the words of Cumbria's Police Constable "Just because you can doesn't mean that you should"!
Whilst the Government have said that we can travel to be in the outdoors, and sailing is an activity that is now allowed, it is our strongly held view that now is not the right time to come to the Club. The main reasons for our decision are:
Having taken guidance from others, including the RYA, we do have a plan for how we will initially open the club. We hope that we will be able to implement this at the end of the month and will share the details with you over the coming days.
We know that we all want to get back to the club that we love, however we ask you, please, to continue being patient and stay away for now.
Stay Alert, Control the Virus, Save Lives
