A reminder about COVID Procedures for Water Sports

Inverclyde is an area with ‘Local Restrictions’ related to COVID.
The Royal West has procedures in place to provide for the minimisation of risk arising from COVID while undertaking, kayaking, open water swimming, rowing, and sailing.

A distinction in these procedures is made between FORMAL and INFORMAL outings.  FORMAL outings are defined as those activities that are scheduled by one of the RWSABC Sporting Discipline Conveners. A record of those participating will be kept for the purposes of Test and Protect. The Test and Protect Register will be maintained by Joe Heffernan in the role of COVID Officer for the Royal West.  Unless otherwise informed by a Sporting Convener or the COVID Officer all outings should be assumed to be INFORMAL.

For INFORMAL Outings:

  •  A maximum of 2 households can be present with a maximum of 6
  • 2m Social Distancing between members of different households is always to be maintained
