June 11 2021 FBYC COVID-19 Update


As of 12:01 on Friday, June 11th the Province is finally in Step 1 of the re-opening of the Province. We are excited to receive this news as it gives us an opportunity to gradually reopen our club.


First and foremost, always follow COVID 19 protocols. Always keep 2m apart and wear a mask when inside the clubhouse and washrooms and where 2m distance cannot be attained.

The clubhouse remains closed to members except to access the washroom and for safety, first aid, maintenance equipment and emergency reasons.

Recreational boating is allowed provided that everyone on board is from the same household. A caregiver or an individual that lives alone can join one household only.

Sailing schools that operate programs classified as Day Camps (programs for children and youth offered for full days for a minimum of one week) are permitted to operate as long as they operate within the guidelines provided by the Ministry of Health. Training for individuals doing singlehanded sailing can occur within distancing and other limitations. Formal recreational instruction can take place as long as 2m distancing is maintained.

Organized public events and social gatherings are limited to 10 people and outside only. The bar will be open with patio seating only starting tonight (1900-2300 hours). Only one household to a table. BBQ’s can be used provided 2m distance is maintained.

These rules do not supersede the Governments guideline so while on site, please adhere to all published guidelines.

The information on the Ontario Government's website is constantly changing, and as such I will ask that you always visit their website for the latest regulation updates. Thanks everyone for your patience. We will keep you updated on any changes as they become available.
