COVID-19 Updates

Good news at last!

Restrictions that were eased from Saturday 27th March allow outdoor group activities for under 18’s to start up again. Going on this we are hoping to start running beach training sessions for nippers and juniors on Sunday’s and these will start on Sunday 4th April at 2pm. We are going to start with dry training and hopefully will be back in the sea in a few weeks once the sea has warmed up a bit. We'll update on WhatsApp and Facebook to confirm all the details about how we are going to go about this in regards to Covid-19.
