Keeping You Safe from COVID 19

We have put together some standards to ensure we are sailing covid smart.

We have put together some standards to ensure we are sailing covid smart.

Crew are asked to complete a sailing questionnaire asking a series of questions on covid contact and personal health.

  1. Have you experienced any of the following symptoms over the past 14 days?
    • Cough, Fever, High temperature, Sore throat, Runny nose, Breathlessness or flu like symptoms. 
  2. Have you been diagnosed with confirmed or suspected Covid-19 infection in the last 14 days ?
  3. Are you a ‘close contact’ of a person who is a confirmed or suspected case of Covid-19 in the past 14 days? (ie. Less that 2m for more than 15 minutes accumulative in 1 day)
  4. Have you been advised by a doctor to self-isolate at this time?    
  5. Have you been advised by a doctor to cocoon at this time?       

We are currently following the following guidelines on board (these may change as government and Irish Sailing recommendations and guidelines are updated …

  • Sailors carry their own personal small hand sanitiser
  • Boat will have sanitiser on deck, below deck and in the heads.
  • Request the wearing of buffs (neck scarfs) that can be pulled up quickly and easily if 2 sailors find themselves within 2 meters of another sailor in a physically straining situation.
  • The boat will be cleaned thoroughly before you board. 
  • All crew (and skipper) will clean their hands and surfaces regularly.
  • Seating at mealtimes to on deck and if the weather doesn’t not permit this, then well spaced out in the saloon.
  • No going ashore to busy areas (i.e. bars, restaurants).
  • A respect for each other’s space
  • If a sailor should become ill during the sail, they report it immediately to the skipper and they will be brought ashore and for collection by land to be arranged.
  • Wear your own sailing gear where possible, 
  • Have your own water bottle for drinking
  • A labled mug will be made available and allocated to each sailor for the duration of the trip or bring your own keep cup.
  • Any personal waste should be disposed of securely in your own refuse bag in the cabin or in the heads swing bin.
  • Jessy will not sail if the weather is shows a forecast of high winds that will put the boat at any kind of risk or put the sailors in a position that will likely lead extreme difficulties to socially distance.
The labled mugs for on board Jessy
