 Covid19 Update No2 May
Added: 25 May 2020


      1. Following the First Minister’s announcement last (21st May ) week the Marine industry met and decided that Marinas and Boat yards will start to re open from the end of May. The Clubs Committee has decided to fall in line with the wider boating fraternity and will open the Carpark for members to work on their boats from 1st June, subject to the appropriate social distancing. This is just the first step and we don’t know when the lift in or racing will take place. Also at present the Clubhouse will remain closed. Hopefully more restrictions will be lifted soon and members should watch their in boxes, the Facebook page or this website for updates.

 
 Covid-19 Update
Added: 09 Apr 2020
We had our first virtual meeting on Monday 6th April with some degree of success. The outcome of this is that the Club is still closed and all activities suspended. We have had to cancel the lift in along with the First Series and Opening Regatta along with all social activities. All Cadet actives have also been suspended until June at least. When we get the all clear Bill will be in touch with the racers to discuss how we go forward while Neil will be in touch with the Cadets. The Committee recognise that people may be experiencing financial uncertainties and would ask that. Where possible members should continue to pay their annual subscriptions along with their mooring fees as appropriate. New mooring tags are due this year and these will be issued when it is ok to do so. Racing and Cadet Fees have been suspended at the moment and will apportioned to cover what’s left of the season when we start again. Concerning the storage fees for craft left in the carpark members will now be able to delay payment until September. The Committee has still decide on a course of action for members who have craft that would incur the extra charge as a result of their craft being stored for more than two years. Finally the Committee had discussed early this year changing of the door code as it has been in place for some time now. It is proposed tochange the code and members advised of the new one in due course.
 
 Message fromthe Commordore on the Restrictions on the Club as a result of COVID19
Added: 22 Mar 2020
Well I have to say, as I took the chair in early February, I didn’t expect to be telling you all in March that the first half of our season is effectively over. Yes, we will sail again, with a fair wind and some Government clearance, hopefully later in the summer. For now, we need to close everything down before it even starts - no crane in, no Opening Regatta and no first series Wednesday evening racing. I hope I am wrong, but the 2nd series may falter as well. Your Committee has continued with the pre-season works, with the race marks prepared and ready to lay, the Ribs have been serviced and our electricity supply for the Clubhouse has been upgraded and ready to use. These are not easy times for anyone, however a Club with no income from the Membership is one that can’t operate. We still have ongoing costs. Our hope is everyone will continue to pay their fees as normal despite the reduced racing programme. The membership, mooring fees, boat and tender storage fees are the lifeblood of the income to the Club. It could well be that we have 3 BBQ’s, Party evening and Polaris Regatta all over the one weekend! These are not times anyone could have predicted and my wish is that we all get sailing in the summer. I also look forward to thanking you all for your support at the best attended Prizegiving Dinner in recent history!! Keep safe Duncan Commodore Holy Loch Sailing Club

We had to get the front door lock changed today and all the old keys will not work in the new lock. Members will still be able to get access by using the Club’s key in the Key Safe. Please remember to put it back. Thanks

Over the last two days three engines have been stolen from Boats left in the Club Carpark We have advised the Police who have become involved and the committee will consider if there is anything we can do to improve security. However in the meantime All members are advised to remove their engines from their craft and store them in a safe place.
 
 Membership Fees
Added: 13 May 2019
Membership fees are now due, as agreed at the AGM they have only gone up by a small amount for Sailing Members to £70.00 and Family Members to £95.00 all other fees remain the same. Please note that following the introduction of the new Constitution a Family Membership is defined as “one or two co-habiting adults and with at least one child under the age of eighteen within their guardianship.” As the Club needs to notify and pay the Crown Estates for the moorings by end of May Members with moorings are asked to ensure that they have paid prior to that.
