Like every other part of life Covid-19 has had an impact on WWKC and now there are a number of items that must be carried out before taking part in a club activity.
*** The Whole Country is now back Level 5 Restrictions ***
- Unfortunately no club trips or trainings
- Only members living within the allowed distance can access the club and must maintain social distancing while on the club grounds at all times
- Clubhouse remains closed to members for the foreseeable future
*** End of update ***
- Only two persons are allowed in the boat shed at any one time for the shortest period possible and must try to maintain social distancing while in the boat shed.
- Members borrowing club equipment are responsible for ensuring the safe removal, cleaning and return of the equipment.
- The club equipment (boat, paddle, helmet, buoyancy aid and spray deck) must be sprayed with disinfectant before use and after use. A sprayer and disinfectant tablets (Milton) will be made available for this purpose.
Full protocol document covering the club site, activities and members can be found at WWKC Covid_19 Protocol. Please read it carefully so that you are aware what is expected from yourself and other members.
