Although the clubhouse is still closed and there are a lot of restrictions in place, there are a lot of good things happening at HYC too. We have been approved by the Hull Harbormaster to run our launch service once we are ready. Our biannual USCG Drydock Inspection is scheduled for June 5th. Assuming that goes well, we will then be able to launch the boats and do our annual in water inspection. We hope to be up and running in mid-June. As we get closer, we will send out a firm date along with the launch policy/procedures. Please note that this delay in service has been due to the USCG not inspecting boats and our date being delayed. Other clubs that may be running most likely are on their off year for Drydock Inspection.
As required by the state, we will now be using a Contact Tracing Logbook. This will be located at the main entrance to the club and is to be filled out by everyone entering the club no matter the duration. It will be a sign in/sign out with a few other details. There will be a sanitation station with the logbook. The book will be out when Sue or the launch drivers are on duty. In the off hours we plan to use a passive camera system to capture people arriving and leaving the club.
The clubhouse remains closed to everyone except employees and those who are attending to tasks approved by the E-Board. We are however moving forward with cleaning and necessary inspections so when we are able to offer clubhouse access, we will be ready.
Please remember that the posted policies in place must be followed. Most importantly:
- Masks are always mandatory at HYC
- Social distancing for those not from the same household
- No Guests at anytime
Sue and the launch staff will be reminding members who are not in compliance. Please share this info with all members of your household. We cannot jeopardize being able to operate the club by not complying with these policies that have been handed down to us.
This year is a very different year at HYC, and we are all in this together. We are honored to be on the Executive Board and often get asked by members, what can I do to help? Please comply with all of these COVID related restrictions. Help us keep HYC safe for everyone and we will get through this.
