Following the Government’s new rules to mitigate the spread of the new Omicron virus which came into force on 10 December, we have had confirmation from the RYA that face coverings must be worn in communal areas of sailing club premises.  For BBSC this means the entrance and stairs, changing rooms (except when showering,) Club room (except when eating or drinking,) and the Race Office.

Please consider using a Lateral-Flow test before coming to the club, especially if you are not feeling well, and if in any doubt about your Covid status, please stay away.

If you discover, during or shortly after a visit to the club where you have mixed with other members, you have developed Covid-19, please inform Nick Marden at or any member of the Committee as soon as possible.

The changing marquee remains in place in case members prefer to continue using it, and RYA advice is to continue to change at home if you can.   We will endeavour to keep the clubhouse well ventilated.
