Disability Awareness Training

After a wet start to the day, (which thankfully was in the classroom), we spent the afternoon in a very sunny and hot Douglas marina on and around the boat. The new(ish) members got to see and practice with the equipment we may use to help our sailors if they require support.
Thank you to our newbies who have joined the charity and are willing to give their time. Thank you to ARC Learning who provide our DAT and make it fun. And thank you to our Yacht manager Bobby Moore who gave his afternoon to help, demonstrate and pass on tips!

A sad loss of a promissing sailor

It is with great sadness that we learnt of the unexpected loss of Cody Atzori.

Those who had the priviledge of meeting Cody on one of his sails with SftD will acknowledge what a promissing sailor he was. Enthusiastic, maybe not in words but certainly in his deeds. Open for all challenges en willing to learn. He will be sorely missed.

We would like to pass on our deepest sympathies to his parents Paolo en Liz and his brothers Hebe, Giacomo and Teo.

Back on the water

The Isle of Man Government ended the circuit breaker lockdown on 19th April and allowed all business and social activities to restart. The Government reviewed the situation again on 22nd April, in light of some further reported infections, and concluded that the previous "end of lockdown" guidance continues to apply, but emphasizing that businesses and organisations should consider their own situation and risks to decide if any special risk reduction mitigations should be applied.

 The Committee has reviewed the situation and considers it safe to continue our sailing programme, albeit the following precautions will be taken (the risk assessment can be dowloaded here):
- Anyone who is unwell or has Covid-19 symptoms, or whose family or household has had Covid-19 symptoms in the past 21 days, is not allowed to sail. 
- it is up to each person to familiarise themselves with the risk assessment, which will also be discussed during the pre-sail onboard briefing
- Good hygiene practices must be applied such as cleaning the heads and surfaces after use (see risk assessment)
- Individuals should, in principle, stay on deck during the sail. Access to the cabin area will be limited and at the discretion of the skipper, to reduce direct exposure between individuals in confined areas
- Sails, involving overnight stays onboard, will be temporarily stopped
We will continue to review the situation in line with Government guidance and adapt accordingly.
