Thursday Snippets, 19 May

This week, I’m reminded of the old saying “May you live in interesting times”. We hope all our members are well, managing these unsettling times and coping with the lack of toilet paper!

Our committee has considered the COVID-19 situation and has decided that, until further restrictions are put in place, sailing will continue as per the sailing calendar. We ask that members be considerate of others and stay home if feeling unwell, if you are in a high-risk category, or have recently been overseas. Please restrict visitors to the club as much as possible, show extra care with your hygiene including washing hands regularly and avoid close physical contact with others at all times. Briefing will be conducted over the PA system so that we don’t have too many people in the clubhouse at any point of time. We will also be asking all people attending the club each Saturday to ‘sign in’ so that we have a register of those in the club each week.

There is every possibility the above measures may change and we will keep our members notified. If you wish to view the committee’s risk assessment in relation to the virus, please visit

We have Race 8 of the Summer Championship on this Saturday with Gary Todd as OOD, followed by Summer Handicap 7 on March 28th. Weather is looking OK for Saturday and the lake is full, so we should see some good sailing. The galley will be open as usual this week but there will be no BBQ following sailing.

At this stage, our next Junior School holiday program will be on Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd April. Details on ASC Facebook an ASC Wild Apricot website.

You should receive the latest Mudpuddler Newsletter within the next few days. Included in the Muddy envelope is a special Member Information Brochure providing information in relation to the proposal to unify with APYC, which will be voted on by members at a Special General Meeting on May 16th following our AGM on that same date. This is an important document for all club members so please take the time to read it. We have a joint information session with APYC on Saturday 4 April at 11.30 a.m. followed by further ASC discussions after sailing on that same day. All members are encouraged to attend these sessions if at all possible to have any questions answered or to raise any issues or concerns. All of these dates may change subject to developments in the Corona Virus situation.
