Behind the scenes, the sailing club's Covid-19 Team have been working to gradually open up activities in compliance with current Covid-19 social distancing and other guidance.
A lot of the work involves risk assessments, policies and procedures, all carefully documented and covering expected phases of increasing activity.
Currently we are stuck with a lack of water level in the lake that makes in impossible to launch boats safely.
Once the water is back there are challenges such as how to socially distance if a boat capsizes and can't easy be righted again. The solution is the latest bit of kit to arrive: a rope ladder that a sailor can climb into the safety boat without any other assistance, staying a good distance from the driver
The protection of the personal data of our members and visitors is duty that Etherow Country Park Sailing Club accepts willingly.
We do all we can to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation that was brought into effect in the spring of 2018.

Thank you for visiting the website of the Etherow Country Park Sailing Club, the only sailing club in Stockport. Feel free to browse our site and see what we have to offer.
Etherow is a friendly club (when racing we experience good-natured rivalry!) and we welcome everyone: from those who may never have put their foot in a dinghy before, to Olympic team coach. Membership is inexpensive and we have some club boats that can be used, for a nominal charge, during the early stages. There are plenty of boats for sale within the club and elsewhere for very little money.
