The VSC is developing a range of resources to help Instructors, VSC Members, and the wider boating community, to prepare for a return to the water as safely and as soon as possible.
Throughout all of our guidance, the ‘principles’ laid out below will be followed:
- We will always follow local, Province of BC and Canadian Federal Government guidelines
- We will, as a boating community, take a considerate and conservative approach:
- Be Considerate: mindful of the potential impact that you have on other water users and do not place unnecessary extra strain on the Canadian Coast Guard, RCMP Marine Unit, Vancouver Police Marine Unit and 911 emergency services.
- Be Conservative: help to minimise risk of infection by taking an extra conservative approach. All sailing requires a Sail Plan that identifies the risk factors including COVID-19 and the procedures to optimize safe outcomes.
Please feel free to Contact Us if you require assistance in planning for your safety on the water.
