Approved Skippers have been sent the following in an Email earlier today. Below are links to SNL 02 and 03 of 2020 plus a new Close Down Checklist.
SNL 02 outlines the Covid-19 risk reduction procedures to be followed by crews on Sea Essay which the CSD Committee feel will allow the safe resumption of sailing. These procedures do not preclude you carrying out any additional actions that you may feel will further reduce the risk of contamination. At this time only charters and some group day sails are being considered as we await further developments in the control of the virus and corresponding government rules and guidance.
SNL 03 covers a new reef 3 tack arrangement, the 1m shorter anchor cable and the stowage of brushes and dinghy oars. The revised Close down Checklist emphasises the enhanced cleaning and disinfecting now required prior to handover.
Website Author and Administrator is a proposed new role for CSD. It will involve working with the Webmaster and the Programme Sub-Committee to keep the CSD website and CSD facebook group up-to-date.
This website is currently produced using WordPress, a web-based tool for creating and managing blogs and other types of website.
Experience in similar roles would be useful but is not a pre-requisite.
Access to a computer with Windows 10 or MAC OS and internet connectivity is likely to be essential. Some updates can be done using a smartphone or tablet.
Familiarity with posting messages on facebook and other internet forums or blogs is highly desirable.
This role would provide an opportunity for a volunteer to contribute to the club and to gain knowledge and experience in the following:
How the club operates
Use of WordPress & other related tools
Aspects of IT security
Publicity / Marketing
This is not a time consuming role as we do not often receive more than two time-sensitive requests to updates the website each month. However, we are short of people with the necessary skills to make the most of the website and we would like more volunteers to be able to carry out such updates.
If you are interested in discussing this opportunity please complete the form below or contact the Webmaster though other channels.
