Message from Jennifer Parkinson-Dow, Commodore

Dear Members:

After careful consideration, the Executive Committee has agreed to temporarily close the Club for the health and safety of our members and our community.  We are all being asked to stay at home over the coming weeks so we trust this measure this will not significantly impact you. 

The Club closure will be effective as of 10:00 pm, Sunday, April 5, 2020 and will last until April 30th 2020, when the executive will re-evaluate the situation

 All facility use including the following are suspended:

  • Clubhouse use including upstairs & downstairs washrooms, showers, and workshops
  • Coop program

Permitted uses include:

  • Essential access for Executive and staff on HSC business
  • Access to private boats and ramp

We are fortunate that to date, we are not aware of any of our members or staff having contracted COVID-19. 

The closure is a prudent measure, and one we hope you all understand.  The health and safety of our members and staff is of utmost importance to us as is ensuring that we are modelling appropriate behavior to the community in our highly visible location. 

If you have private property inside the clubhouse which you require or if you need to open the main gate, please contact commodore@hollyburnsailingclub.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or any member of the Executive Committee.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Club as soon as possible!

Jennifer Parkinson-Dow
