MPSC Open from April 12th 2021

Dear Member,

To help keep our staff and club members safe and comply with current restrictions we have made some important changes to how you can Charter and how we will conduct our Handovers and Receptions.
From the 12th April the club will reopen for sailing with the following restrictions
  • Members from one household can charter and stay on board overnight
  • Members from up to 6 households may charter charter for day sails (no overnight accommodation on board) social distancing and other control measures would still need to be in place.
From the 17th May the club will fully reopen for Charters and Training, availablity and dates can be found on our training pages
Where possible handovers will be remote.
When you have made your booking we will send you 3 documents which you will need to read prior to your charter.
Safety information is in 2 parts and contains instructions and information regarding all safety equipment and ancillary equipment on board. 
Charter Booking and Handover gives information about the new handover procedure, including how to access to base, pontoons and the boats. All of  which has had to change. 
Next of Kin this form must be completed and return via email before you charter.
If you or any of your crew are showing any symptoms of the Corona virus we ask that you do not come to the base, If anyone shows symptoms whilst on board or within the days following please inform one of the ops team by phone as soon as possible. We will keep your next of Kin forms for 21 days. 
We hope these extra measures do not get in the way of you having a pleasant sail.
At this time we are still unable to conduct any training due to government guidelines.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us, thank you for your continued support and understanding in these uncertain times.

And remember, if you are very unwell or have symptoms that last longer than 7 days visit, call NHS on 111, or your local GP.
