There is currently some confusion surrounding resumption of boating activities following information posted by British Marine.

I have spoken to CRT Regional Manager this afternoon and he has confirmed that leisure boating DOES NOT recommence on March 8th.

CRT's roadmap is to open to day boating from March 29 with a full resumption on April 12.

Attached is CRT's post from March 2.

The management have just concluded a meeting and here is how we have voted to proceed.

SIBC will be closed to members from Thursday for the period of National Lockdown.

Essential projects and island maintenance will continue subject to proceeding in a Covid secure manner. i.e. Wearing of PPE.

With the approach of potentially bad weather and to support Sarah we will have management inspections of the island and particularly the boats. These inspections will be carried out by members of the management committe who live in Doncaster. If anything of concern is spotted the boat owner will be contacted immediately.

Electricity and diesel will be available from today until Wednesday. This should be booked in the normal manner directly with Sarah Harris on 07871731480.

No sales will take place after Wednesday, However, should the lockdown be further extended management will re-visit this.

Clearly any closure of the island is the last thing we want to impose but for the safety of everyone it is essential we comply with government rules.

It's not a pleasant task to (once again) have to undertake but I'm sure everyone will comply and I would like to thank all the membership in advance for your support and understanding.

Stay safe.

To be held Saturday 4th July 2020 At 10am

On the Island Grass Area

(Please exercise social distancing)

As you may be aware the club has recently experienced issues with the boat hoist. As the pulling out of boats is an integral part of the club the committee is exploring the purchase of another hoist. As this will be an expensive piece of kit, the committee is seeking the support of members.

Therefore, a Special General Meeting is being called and will be held on Saturday 4th July at 10am. Due to the current situation the meeting will be held up the island so that members can attend safely and maintain social distancing.

The agenda for the meeting will be to discuss replacement of the boat hoist. No other business will be discussed at this meeting.

Kind regards

Steve Marshall
