SCOW COVID-19 Task Force Update

Good afternoon,

I would like to share with you SCOW’s COVID-19 update for August 25, 2020.

Due to the ongoing pandemic and lack of a vaccine at this time, SCOW will remain in our Phase 1 "open status" for our sailing club.

While the skies are brightening, COVID-19 is still a risk to all of our members.

As a reminder, SCOW’s Phase 1 opening has the following restrictions (Modifications to Phase 1 are highlighted in yellow):

    • All skippers and their guests must follow local jurisdictions’ health guidelines;
    • Boat reservations are still limited to a single reservation each day, per boat;
    • Limit of 3 people on a boat at one time. (Skipper and 2 crew), Single Households may have a total of 6, including skippers;
    • No raft-ups;
    • Docking at area marinas is now allowed, with appropriate precautions being taken by skippers and crew;
    • All boats must continue to be cleaned after each use;
    • All Skippers and Crew will sign the COVID-19 risk waiver of liability before leaving the dock;
    • Social events and regattas are still on hold until further notice;
    • Basic and Cruiser water classes will be at the students' and trainers' discretion. 

Please remember that there is a level of risk with the COVID-19 virus each time you are around people outside of your immediate household. Please follow the local jurisdiction’s guidelines, your good judgement and stay safe!

Your support and cooperation are greatly appreciated. My best to you and your family!
