To view minutes, financials, the Yearbook, members-only flyers, etc., please remember to Log in.
Following a meeting late yesterday and after taking medical advice we have decided to postpone or cancel all FHYC events until at least the end of April. Our membership contains many people who are in the highest risk categories for Covid-19 and we owe to them and to our membership generally to take a conservative approach in our decisions. Later in April we will review our approach and make further decisions. Currently we have no good estimate how long the situation will last.
Where possible we will try to reschedule events for later in the year although timing is uncertain. It most possibly will mean a very busy fall. The organizers of the various events will be evaluating possibilities including cancellation and postponements. You may expect further communications from them.
The following events are impacted up to the end of April:
- Sock burning - cancelled
- Commissioning day - parade and blessing of the fleet, ceremony and luncheon - postponed, evaluate the possibility of rescheduling
- "Come ye by land, come ye by sea" - postpone
- Wilkerson Race - postpone
- Oar Race - (May) to be decided
- Other informal racing - under advisement
I would remind members of their own personal responsibilities in social distancing and in taking the other actions to control the spread of coronavirus. I also suggest that they communicate to ensure that non-members in our community are kept fully informed of this evolving situation to protect the health and wellbeing of all of us.
