Dear Members,

Please see below a general set of policies for the next few months, this has been drafted in the context of the COVID19 pandemic and is generally in line with both the Governments pathway document and Irish Sailings advice.  Clearly things could and will change and we will advise Members of any significant changes as they occur.

Sailing will be undertaken in accordance with the Government & HSE guideline/policy. LRYC has a COVID19 Committee who will enforce procedures on the day.

Contact Tracing

As part of our Commitment to the ISA and Government guidelines we are asking all members to fill out the form every time that they visit LRYC water for the next few weeks. This will help everyone concerned with contact tracing if any of our members become infected. This form has to be filled out for everyone who attends the Club during the Covid Crisis.  This data will only be kept for the duration of the Covid Crisis and will then be deleted in compliance with GDPR Rules.

PLEASE MAKE YOURSELF AWARE OF THE ISA GUIDELINEShttps://www.sailing.ie/Portals/0/documents/2020/Governance/Return%20to%20Sailing%20Scheme%20PH3%20Final%20for%20Publication.pdf

This form has to be filled out every time you visit LRYC for any reason.

Berthing Policy in respect to Covid 19

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

This document should be read in conjunction with the normal berthing policy.

Every user of the club facilities has a responsibility to act in a safe and respectful manner.

In addition to the directions below we would urge people to use common sense in order to keep you and your fellow members safe during these challenging times.

Thank you for your cooperation.

  • All boats must have paid for berthing with the Treasurer and have checked with the Bosun before berthing at the club.
  • Boats must be insured
  • Soap is provided at all out-door taps. We urge people to use them as directed by Covid 19 guidelines
  • Once you have moored, it is recommended to use sanitiser i.e bleach spray on the jetty cleats as they may be used by other members.
  • We strongly encourage that Members use a swing mooring or anchor when visiting the Club.  If shore mooring is necessary, please abide by the conditions below.
  • LRYC reserve the right to review this policy as they see fit to protect health & safety, in the event that our moorings are oversubscribed, the Club are operating on a first come first served basis.
  • People must NOT CONGRETATE on the jetties.

Main Jetty

  • Motor boats must moor stern-on on the inside of the jetty
  • Please insure that any boat side accesses are not opposite your neighbours’ to insure that social distancing is maintained.
  • For stern-to moorings, please use aft access to boats where available, in order to avoid the use of side decks.
  • Avoid opening windows opposite your neighbours open window.
  • Please insure that a free space of one boat length is maintained at the end of the stern-on moorings to facilitate new arrivals (it is not reasonable for an arriving boat to have to first create a space in order to moor).
  • Sailing keel boats may moor in parallel in the area indicated on the plan.
  • When crossing parallel moored boats, please only cross over the bow of the boat and avoid as much contact as possible.
  • A drop-down space of one boat length will be marked out on the inside of the main jetty. This is to facilitate boats that are kept on moorings. It is for short stay only while loading or unloading boats. Please keep free otherwise.
  • Only single boat parallel mooring is permitted on the outside of the main jetty.

South Jetty

  • Motor boats must moor stern-on on the inside of the jetty
  • Please insure that any boat side accesses are not opposite your neighbours’ to insure that social distancing is maintained.
  • Barges will moor on the south end of the jetty.
  • When crossing parallel moored barges, please only cross over the bow of the boat and avoid as much contact as possible.

KEEP ALL JETTIES FREE OF NONESSENTIAL EQUIPEMENT
