The safety benefit of the RIB, is much greater than the COVID risk from operating the RIB, providing these precautions are followed:
- RIBs can only be operated by the Session Coach and Assistant.
- All RIB operations to follow these rules, during launching and recovery:
- Where possible, members of the same household to launch and recover boats (Session Coach and Assistant)
- All helpers must wear a face covering.
- All helpers must stay 2m apart - use ropes to pull the trolley and the boat if required
- Clean all surfaces post useage
We all need to understand and follow these precautions so that we can help everyone stay safe.
On the water
- The only personal contact will be
- Session Coach in a rescue/medical situation
The measures above will hopefully be relaxed as soon as government restrictions allow.
