Covid-19 Coaching Protocol

We have developed a Wakatere Covid-19 Coaching Protocol to operate safely during Alert Levels. 

Coaching groups need to comply with the ten person limit and social distancing ashore is primary. We request that anyone at the club, when coaching is being run, assists us to operate withing the current restrictions - masks, scan in, social distance. 

Wakatere Coaching Protocol 

Further instruction on arrival, parent support & pick up will be passed on to sailors with a booking.
