As a prerequisite to entering, sailing or RM volunteering in a GHYC race, you agree your personal information may be shared with the local Public Health Authorities to enable rapid contact tracing if a participant or volunteer at the event becomes ill with COVID-19 or has been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19
precautions to be taken to race / RM volunteer with the GHYC in any races or series:
- You should not let any person onto your boat who display flu-like or COVID-19 symptoms. They have a responsibility to self-isolate and get Covid-19 tested.

- Crew to wash their protective sailing gear including gloves and lifejackets at home
