Its your friendly KLCRC Safety Officer.
Now obviously you’ve all heard whats going on in the world regarding this latest pandemic and lots of conflicting advise about, for the most up to date advice visit https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response .
The current position I’m proposing is at the moment is not to suspend rowing as the risk of infection is quite low (one good thing about north norfolk its slower to react to the rest of the country) .
Now should you feel this is the wrong approach. That is totally acceptable.
We do not enforce you to participate in any club activities so don’t feel like, this is your choice of which as always will be respected.
I suppose what I am proposing is as for now is to carry on if you wish, as we are all big boys and girls and can make our own choices, although I would expect members to contact the other members of the crews they have had contact with out of courtesy should there be any change in their health.
As this situation progresses and should certain parameters change obviously this position will differ.
Please stay safe and enjoy your rowing.
Final request could members please check their vehicles and rowing belongings as a life jacket seems to be missing and at roughly £70 for a replacement its a expensive cost to the club but not as costly as a members life.
As a constant reminder please wear life jackets at all times in or nearby the water.
All you members are exceptionally important as we don’t have many!!!
Please take care and don’t panic!
