About us

 

 

Please find below details of our phased re-opening of the Club.
 
STAGE 1 – LIMITED RETURN TO RECREATIONAL SPORTING ACTIVITY

 

The Club is reopening on Friday 15th May 2020 for Members only with the operating restrictions detailed below. The premise must be to enable exercise in the safest manner we can and so we have looked to minimise the risks to everyone.

Members will be able to attend the club site to work on or use their boats .  We will also enable you to use clubhouse but strictly to access the toilets and we must rely on you to clean touch points thoroughly when entering, using toilets, leaving, and locking the club house and site.  This is to protect members from possible infection – we must do everything we can to prevent spreading the virus and triggering more outbreaks. We will have some sanitizing stations in key locations to help but We need your support and self-policing to make this work as safely as possible.  If there are blatant breaches of these guidelines, we will take action against those involved.  We will not go against Government advice and will update restrictions at TCSC in line with their recommendations.

 Government guidelines can be found at Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance and support
