COVID-19 Status Updates

This page is updated with the latest information on how COVID-19 is affecting the Fanshawe Yacht Club and Sailing School.
Club & Membership  ·  Latest Update – Thursday July 15th, 2021

Fellow Members of Fanshawe Yacht Club we have good news coming our way with the Stage 3 reopening of Ontario.

The Minister of Health states masks and face coverings will remain in place in indoor public settings throughout Stage 3 as will physical distancing requirements. Masks will be required in some outdoor settings along with other public health measures. He will be encouraging people to wear masks for the coming months in an effort to reduce the transmission of the virus.

Excitement is in the air at FYC. More boats are on the water, including our youngest sailors in their Optis while enjoying their summer sailing camp.

Wednesday afternoon and evening informal races are now taking place.

We have already scheduled three regattas:

  • The Firefly Regatta to be held August 7th and 8th (members only)
  • The Summer Regatta scheduled for Aug. 28 & 29th (attendees in discussion)
  • The Pumpkin Regatta scheduled for Oct. 2nd and 3rd. (attendees in discussion)
  • More events will be scheduled in the coming weeks. As you know we have not had a Sail Past, the Commodore’s Regatta or a bonfire. Hopefully, these will be scheduled at some point.

Please remember to sign-in to the contact tracing book at the entrance when you arrive at the Club

Come out to enjoy an evening sail with that special someone. The Club has been waiting patiently for your return. We have bald eagles, osprey, hawks, cormorants and humming birds onsite for those who enjoy birdwatching.

Don’t forget to drive slowly as our ground hogs have poor eyesight and will not see your vehicle coming.

Keep well and stay safe.
Regards,

Commodore 2021
