Starting on the morning of Friday, 1 January the RWSABC COVID Procedures for Water Sports have changed to reflect that Inverclyde has been in Level 4 Local Restrictions since Boxing Day.

This means that rowing and sailing are restricted to a single household.  Swimming can take place in groups of up to 8 if you follow the procedures for FORMAL outings.  Kayaking can take place with more than 2 households participating so long as you follow the procedures for FORMAL outings.

Some points to note are:

  • If paddling you should review the Generic Risk Assessment for Kayaking that can be found at https://bit.ly/KayakRA (KILO alpha yankee alpha kilo ROMEO APLPHA)
  • If swimming you should review the Generic Risk Assessment for Rowing and Swimming that can be found at https://bit.ly/rowswimRA (romeo oscar whiskey sierra whiskey india ROMEO ALPHA)
  • Everyone should review the updated COVID procedures which can be found at https://bit.ly/32HMcl1 (3 2 HOTEL MIKE charlie lima 1)
  • For FORMAL outing one person in the group needs to contact the COVID Officer by email or WhatsApp before the Outing to say you have read and understood the risk assessment, the date, start time and expected duration of your outing and who you expect to be on the outing
  • The same person needs to contact the COVID Officer after the outing to give the actual duration and to confirm those who participated
  • The COVID Officer (Joe Heffernan) can be contacted at email address formaloutings@rwsabc.com or via WhatsApp to mobile 07920 381372
  • Under Level 4 local restrictions you should not travel to the club if you do not live in Inverclyde

If you have any questions please contact Joe Heffernan (COVID Officer) via email to secretary@rwsabc.com

Keep Safe!

Due to the continuing closure of the Bar and no clear date when we might reopen it is prudent to reduce the stock held.
We wish to give away our non-alcoholic drinks that have gone past their ‘Best Before Dates’. We tried to sell them at an earlier sale, but no one was interested. We now hope that the price is right.
There is a selection of still and fizzy wines that we would also like to sell off.
If you wish to purchase anything shown below please send an email to sales@rwsabc.com, stating what you would like to purchase. Each item has a reference number, in most cases, this will be enough to identify it.
However:
Item Reference 9 – Please state how many lots of 4 bottles you want
Item Reference 10 – Please state how many individual bottles you wish to purchase
Sales will be based on first come first served. If you are successful, you will receive an email telling you how to make an Internet Banking transfer to pay for the purchase. Only payment by Internet Banking will be accepted.
DO NOT PAY UNTIL YOU RECEIVE A REPLY TO CONFIRM THE SALE!
Once the funds have been received into the Bank, we will contact you to arrange delivery or collection at the Royal West.

Starting on the morning of Saturday, 12 December the RWSABC COVID Procedures have changed to reflect that Inverclyde has now moved in Level 2 Local Restrictions.

This allows Rowing and Swimming with more than 2 households to take place at the Royal West. Paddlesports were allowed to meet together in groups of larger than 2 households while under Level 3 restrictions so they will see little change in the procedures.

Some points to note are:

  • If paddling you should review the Generic Risk Assessment for Kayaking that can be found at https://bit.ly/KayakRA
  • If rowing or swimming you should review the Generic Risk Assessment for Rowing and Swimming that can be found at https://bit.ly/rowswimRA
  • Everyone should review the updated COVID procedures which can be found at https://bit.ly/32HMcl1
  • One person needs to contact the COVID Officer by email or WhatsApp before the Outing to say you have read and understood the risk assessment, the date, start time and expected duration of your outing and who you expect to be on the outing
  • The same person needs to contact the COVID Officer after the outing to give the actual duration and to update the participants if there have been changes compared to the initial email
  • The COVID Officer (Joe Heffernan) can be contacted at email address formaloutings@rwsabc.com or via the Rowing TRAINING WhatsApp Group or via WhatsApp to mobile 07920 381372
  • If not living in Inverclyde please check whether you are allowed to travel to a Level 2 area.

We hope these updated procedures will see more people taking advantage of water sports at the Royal West.

If you have any questions please contact Joe Heffernan (COVID Officer) via email to secretary@rwsabc.com

Happy paddling, rowing and swimming!
