Commodores Newsletter – Uncharted waters

To all members

In view of the fact that we have a few difficult months ahead, the Committee are working hard to plan for the Summer season.

We hope that the virus COVID-19 will ease quickly to allow us to proceed with the planned programme and that we will be able to function with some normality by early May.

In the interim, we would appreciate if all members could pay their subscriptions as early as possible as funds are required to pay our bank loans, our instructors and bar staff when we are able to open the clubhouse and bar.

At this stage, we do not know when we will be able to continue with events already planned. It may be a case that the sailing and activity side of WHSC will start before the social side, but we will adhere to best medical advice and will keep in touch on a regular basis to advise on the latest. In the meantime, the show goes on in the background and we are preparing for a full active season. So please renew your membership as soon as possible.

You can keep in touch through our WhatsApp groups or Facebook page.

If you have any concerns, please feel free to contact me via WhatsApp, pm or text on 086 813 6193  

Stay safe and well.
