We’ve now rescheduled sails in the expectation of Lockdown ceasing by the end of January and look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Pride of Mann III.
You’ll see there are five sails in February to enjoy. Let me know which one is good for you?
For new recruits who’ve recently had a ‘taster’ sail we’re hoping each of you will join one of the February short sails to gain experience on it! Which one is convenient for you? Just let me know and I’ll book you on it.
If Lockdown is continued we’ll roll forward the schedule into March.
Something to look forward to from SFTD!
As you will have heard, the Government have announced that we are to start a full lock down for a 21 day period starting at 00:01 on Thursday morning. This grace period is primarily to allow people to organise work, social and family matters prior to what is hoped will be an effective ‘fire break’ to address the recent Covid 19 outbreak on the Island.
The Committee has considered the position and agreed that all planned SFTD activities (sails, meetings) should be suspended until after the period of the lock down, dependent of course, on ongoing advice and announcements from the Government. Where activities can be carried out using technology e.g. Zoom meetings, then we can explore whether these offer a practical option to keep the work of the charity moving forward.
Whilst this terrible disease continues to cause so much disruption, heartache, hardship and sadness, we can agree that this decisive action by the Government will at least give us a chance to return to a form of normality, sooner, rather than later.
Take care, and keep safe.
POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE !!!
