Waldringfield Sailing Club

Return to Sailing Programme

We have published a normal Sailing Programme for 2021 in the hope that we can follow this programme as soon as circumstances allow.
It is not clear yet how soon which activities and functions will return – we have to wait and see what guidelines permit.
The COVID Team will now be meeting regularly to review the latest guidance with the aim of getting as much sailing restarted as soon as possible while keeping things safe for sailors and safety volunteers. Updates from this team will be communicated each week via the Update.
