KEYHAVEN Yacht Club has opened its doors after the UK lockdown with three successes: a new operating service, secretary and virtual racing.
On 4th July, Keyhaven was ready to open the doors to their clubhouse bar and garden area for its club members. The adjustment of social distancing requirements and the relaxation of rules to permit bars and beer gardens to open allowed Keyhaven Yacht Club to offer indoor table service and outdoor takeaway service at the clubhouse.
The team has implemented a one-way system through the clubhouse. In addition, the club has installed a comprehensive sanitising procedure to ensure they maintain high safety standards.
While the club is currently unable to provide changing room facilities, it has opened the toilets to members.
Another big event is the arrival of the new club secretary Katherine Quirk. Katherine grew up in the New Forest and comes from a strong sailing family. Having returned to the area a few years ago from time abroad, the club has welcomed her with open arms.
The club has also enjoyed a successful online virtual racing season with the competition running high by old and new members alike. Keyhaven will be back on the water for regular racing soon.
