COVID-19 Statement

Lockdown 2.0

[updated 23/03/2021]

Following the developments in Government advice about COVID-19, we are updating members of the public and community groups on the response of Midland Sailing club and Sail Birmingham.

The Committee of Management’s focus must be on our responsibilities to members, visitors and staff. In the current lockdown, Sail Birmingham will be closed for all sailing activities until 1st March 2021. The club house is closed, including changing rooms and toilets.

These rules will be reviewed in light of experience and changes to the framework set out by the Government and Royal Yachting Association (RYA). Further updates will be forthcoming as the situation evolves.
