COVID-19 

The COVID-19 risk assessment and mitigations can be found HERE

The following was updated on 29th June 2021:

As a result of Covid-19 cases rising across the country and the delta variant now existing in most areas of the country, we feel additional precautions are required to ensure the safety of our members. Therefore, Plymouth Youth Sailing and the Supernova Class Association kindly ask you to complete a lateral flow test 48 hours before your arrival at the event. And if possible, bring a further test with you to complete on Saturday morning. This is not a mandatory requirement to attend the event and does not replace the mitigations set out in our Covid-19 risk assessment.

These tests are quick to complete and are freely available from a wide range of places. You can find your local supplier here Find a rapid lateral flow test site in your area - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

You will recall from the briefing the need to provide a covid declaration, a copy of the form can be found HERE. If possible, please bring a completed copy to the event, paper copies will be available on the day for those that are unable to print this off before the event.

We apologise for the late notice, but we trust you understand the reasons for this request.

Sponsorship Requirements

We have listened to feedback regarding the wearing of the event rash vests and have altered how these can be worn. Our preference would be that these are worn over your personal floatation device (PDF), found should you prefer the rash vest can be worn underneath the PDF. The rash vest should not be underneath any other items of clothing. You can remove the rash vest between races if you need to add or remove an item of clothing but must be back on before the start of the next race. 

The details regarding the changes and what is allowed can be found HERE. Please read this document to understand what is now allowed. 

Entries

Entries are now closed – you cannot enter on the day. 

Accommodation

There is plenty of local accommodation in Plymouth, some details can be found here https://www.visitplymouth.co.uk/accommodation

Mount Batten Centre is fortunate to have a limited amount of accommodation on-site however, this should be booked directly with the centre. 

Social Aspect

Due to the present circumstances, it is not possible to deliver our usual level of organised social aspects at this year's Nationals. Beer & Boat tuning will be replaced with a few virtual clips from class supremos Cliff & Gav, these will be posted on to the event Whatsapp group in the build-up to the event. 

The event briefing will not take place and is instead available virtually via youtube (https://youtu.be/6XEDs2E1qYI). 

We are working with PYS to deliver Friday evening's welcome meal, the format of this will be different from previous years and we will communicate this with all entrants as early as possible. 

Our buddy system will remain as originally planned with groups having two or three gold fleet members to support. If you need any hints or tips on sea sailing, please ask your gold fleet rep as the first port of call. 

We aim to hold the prize giving in person (socially distanced of course). 

Arrival

There is significant setup work involved in an event like this and therefore we kindly ask that you do not arrive before 12pm on Thursday 1st July.
