Countdown to re-opening UYC

Published 18:51 on 20 May 2020

The Directors outline below the actions we have taken and would like to highlight that although the club house will be closed, we are hiring separate toilets which will be available for members with sanitiser/cleaning products and queue system.

May we thank members for their messages of support. Many of you have asked about mid-week sailing in order to spread the number of members on site. We can confirm that we are keen to support this and will be releasing more information asap. We welcome views of members and can be contacted on uyccommodore@gmail.com
