Last Wight of the Proms - Northwood House, Cowes
The ‘Last Wight of the Proms' has been a really popular event for S&CA. However, it is on the Sunday night and would mean an evening/night sail or people taking the Monday off work to get home. For those who want to stay, I’d be delighted to organise tickets for this flag waving event.
Tickets will be £25 for the concert and a minibus or coach will be ordered for a small extra cost.
The Committee intends that club events will go ahead wherever possible in 2021, and the planned events are not intended to be cancelled unless they are clearly prohibited by government restrictions.
All events will be run as 'Cruise in Company'. All participants must comply with and be individually responsible for relevant guidance or regulations such as socially distancing, maximum group sizes and household mixing during any interaction of crew groups.
It will be the responsibility of individual skippers to comply with relevant guidance or regulations in respect of crewing arrangements and the safety of their crews. This includes, but is not limited to - hygiene precautions, social distancing, group sizes and mixing of households on board.
Due to the uncertainty over Covid risks and restrictions at the time of the event, activities and catered dining arrangements (Plan A) are subject to change or cancellation. Crews will need to be prepared for a Plan B of switching to an open air BBQ in individual crew groups or catering on board for example.
All attendees must be registered for the event for track and trace purposes.
ANYONE EXPERIENCING COVID SYMPTOMS MUST NOT ATTEND
