We're excited to see that Government rules in the UK are starting to relax and that some clubs are letting their members get back on the water.
Obviously many clubs are keeping their doors closed, or are restricting areas within the club to protect other members.
All clubs I've seen which are allowing sailing are putting the emphasis back on the member/sailor to take the responsibility for their safety. There is unlikely to be too many other members around and certainly there will be no racing or support boats over the next few weeks.
With this in mind my thoughts jump to safety. It's important to ensure you are looking after yourself, you may be itching to get back in the boat but if the conditions are not right, you shouldn't go.
Please don't take this list as all the things you need to check. Please follow advice from the RYA and Government and use your common sense.
Have you thought about some additional items which might be of use to you if you are sailing by yourself?
If you are planning on placing an order why not add a note to your order to request a Sailing Chandlery water bottle and we'll throw one in for you.
If you are going out on the water we hope you have loads of fun! Tag Sailing Chandlery or use #sailingchandlery on your social media posts.
