SCRA 12 May 2020: Not Yet Time to Return to the Water

Current Scottish Government advice is to protect yourself and others:

  • stay at home
  • only go outside for essential food, health and work reasons
  • stay 2 metres (6 feet) away from other people
  • wash your hands regularly                
  • wash your hands as soon as you get home

Scottish Coastal Rowing Clubs should continue to follow the advice of the Scottish Government, which at the current time precludes a return to rowing in our wonderful St Ayles Skiffs. Our clubs are all very community minded, and understand that the restrictions on their normal activities are for the benefit of the whole community. Any pronouncements of the Westminster government with regard to permissible activity do not apply to activities in Scotland and should be ignored by Scottish Clubs.

The SCRA committee continues to monitor Scottish Government advice, and is endeavouring to work with other organisations to prepare for the stepdowns in lockdown that will come in due course. We are currently consulting clubs on steps that could be taken, when rowing is once again possible, to reduce the risk of community transmission of the virus.

We send our thanks and best wishes to the key workers who are working hard for the benefit of others. We send our best wishes to those who have been affected by the virus, and our condolences to families who have been bereaved. We hope that everyone in our community stays well, is able to enjoy exercising outside on dry land, and is able to join us back on the water as soon it is prudent to do so.
