“Firstly, thank you for your continued patience, support and understanding as we found ourselves ‘locked down’ again for a second time this year.

Whilst, this week, we have seen an easing of restrictions within our sector, I am still very mindful that Plymouth is currently in Tier 2.

The Centre will continue to operate over the winter period on a Covid-19 secure pre-bookable course or session based only system for educational use and staff delivering these sessions will now be based in the classroom. For weekends throughout the winter there will also be staff based on-site in the classroom during daylight hours.

Members can still access their boat or kayak at any time with the smart lock system that has recently been installed with positive feedback.

I’m sure you, like myself and the rest of the team, are hopeful that come spring 2021 we will be in a position to operate more on a ‘normal’ level but for now, please continue to show your patience and understanding to our current operating requirements. We will review these measures stated above in the New Year.

Please stay safe this winter if getting afloat.”

Alex King
Centre Director
