FAQs Update - Sail Smart

Updated Phase 3 Frequently Asked Questions

The Government announced (Tuesday 4th August) that Phase 4 of the Roadmap for Reopening Ireland will be delayed. This means that our own Return to Sailing Scheme Phase 4 will be delayed also. As Phase 4 does not see much change for our sports, we see Phase 3 as how we will operate for the foreseeable future. With this in mind, we thought it would be helpful to update the Phase 3 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) as a reminder:

The main points to note in Phase 3 are:

  • Travel restrictions within Ireland ease
  • All training, competitive and recreational activity to resume in compliance with guidelines
  • Multi household crewed boats in ‘pods’ (maintaining regular crew as much as possible)
  • National, Regional and Club racing events resume
  • Club Catering Facilities Open
  • Up to 200 people can gather outside, and indoor gatherings of up to 50 people
  • Contact tracing must continue, and social distancing should be maintained on land in accordance with Government guidelines
  • Irish Sailing Regional Development Support continues for clubs and centres, and the office will continue to be staffed in a limited capacity to provide all services (ICCs, Commercial Endorsements etc)
