Sailing was included in the list of outdoor sports for which qualified restart was approved in the Routemap published by the Scottish Government in May. Until 24th Sept there was progressive relaxation of the controls. All has now changed.

CIRCUITBREAKER UPDATE:  Sunday racing still on (as Helensburgh in NHS Highland) but members from a different NHS regions require to take account of the Scottish Government "need to travel" advice. The RYAS Guidance (10th Oct)  includes FAQs to try to clarify what is now possible.

  • "Bubbles" for organised outdoors activities are now constrained to a single bubble of no more than 30 people
  • Overnighting on yachts is now - as with second homes - constrained to one household.
  • And mixed household sailing is only allowed on craft large enough to allow 2m distancing, max 2 households, 6 people excl under 12's
  • The details of the RYAS Guidance can be found HERE . This is up-to-date as of 10th Oct and includes access to the FAQ information

Keep an eye on "What's On" and "News"/Facebook for future plans.
