Dear FYC Members
At this time, we are not sure how COVID-19 will affect our summer sailing season. FYC’s top priority is the health and safety of our members. We believe that exercise and outdoor activities are an important component to mental health, especially during a stressful time. The Club will follow all public health orders and recommendations.
We are monitoring the recommendations of Manitoba Health, the government of Canada, and the World Health Organization (WHO) and will keep you updated on how we might open and operate by implementing protocols that control the spread of the virus, keep us safe, and respect the health needs of permanent residents of the Whiteshell Park area. The most recent Sail Canada update urges that all member clubs close their boatyards to boat owners and sailors and suspend all activities. As we approach our opening date (May 16) we will post an update on whether, or how we can open the Club while respecting recommended protocols.
