President’s message 

Based on the BC Re-start 4-step Plan

Effective June 9, 2021:

“Field of play” for the club includes on the water, on the dock, on the beach, and inside the compound to facilitate safe moving of boats on and off the water.  BC Re-start Plan:  50 people, contact allowed, on field of play.

  • ·       Tandem canoes back on the water as of today.
  • ·       Limits to participant numbers removed for club trips.
  • ·       Emerging evidence shows that COVID-19 is not transmitted easily through touch so the extra cleaning protocols put in place for equipment (paddles, PFDs, spray skirts) are being discontinued.
  • ·       COVID-19 Cleaning Orientation sessions discontinued.
  • ·       Masks are still required in the clubhouse, but not outside (ie compound, dock, beach). 
  • ·       Field of play does not require masks but since social-distance requires mask-wearing within 2 metres members may feel more comfortable wearing a mask off the water if in close proximity to other members.
  • ·       Basement maximum capacity increases to four people.
  • ·       Limits to number of people in compound and on dock removed.
  • ·       Clubhouse main floor still off-limits based on indoor gathering restrictions.
  • ·       Club sign-in sheets will still be in use for COVID-19 contact tracing.

Further easing of restrictions regarding Step 3 of the BC Re-start Plan will be based on communication from the BC government, estimated to be July 1, 2021.

(Dragon boat and OC6 may resume as early as July 1, 2021 based on BC Re-start Plan Step 3)
