Cam Sailing Club Covid-19 Update – 21st July 2021

Dear All 

ROAD MAP FOR COMING OUT OF LOCKDOWN
Further to previous Covid-19 Update (18th June2021)


As all are aware the government have now changed their approach to make Covid restrictions a guidance rather than a legal requirement.

Current advice is to continue with track and trace, social distancing, wearing face covering and more frequent cleaning regimes.  We are also taking on-board updated guidance and advice from the Royal Yachting Association.

The Cam Sailing Club does have an on-going duty of care to provide a safe environment for our members. For the safety of our members with Covid-19 cases rapidly rising in the country

Lorna Cole – Commodore Cam Sailing Club

The Cam Sailing Club based at Waterbeach, just a few miles north of the centre of Cambridge, has much to offer families who want to ‘get away from it all’ at weekends. 
 
Sailing tuition, regular competitions and a clubhouse that offers great facilities and regular social events aimed at the whole family, can make family membership an affordable pleasure.
 
Accessible by public transport as Waterbeach station is close by and with camping facilities on site, membership of the CSC is well worth considering to get the whole family out in the fresh air and involved in a pleasurable pastime that involves everyone, whether sailors or not.
