Stage 3: masks, safe distancing, racing, and guests

31 Jul 2020 8:26 PM | Matthew Burpee (Administrator)

Today, Toronto joins Stage 3 after we each helped minimize the spread of Covid. 

Let's continue to safely enjoy this beautiful summer on the water as we begin our Tuesday & Thursday evening races in August (Sundays in Sept/Oct).

Be aware of a false sense of security. We should still be very vigilant as numbers have spiked in many places when restrictions have been lifted. It may be safer to assume that each person you meet could have Covid. Take necessary precautions including hand washing, not touching one's face, avoiding large groups, social distancing, and wear a mask.

Please sail or paddle with guests from your household or bubble. If you don't go with people in your bubble, Ontario Sailing recommends that you wear a buff or face mask or covering while on the water.

We are still required to maintain physical distancing of at least 2 metres with people from outside our household or ten person bubble. We must wear a mask or covering when close to people outside our household or bubble.

Our club is responsible for ensuring physical distancing can be maintained. It’s important we present well, as you reflect our club. So let's not let our safety measures slip.

Always bring a mask, have it with you at all times and expect it to be required when things prove difficult to maintain physical distancing.

The clubhouse remains locked. 

There will be a clean up day in early November.

The AGM will be done via zoom.


Knowledge about Covid prevention has developed further since this spring. Please see the following about this awful disease.
