SailCTAccess response to COVID19
A Special Message To Our Sail Connecticut Access Program Members and Supporters
As we navigate our way through the evolving and challenging COVID-19 situation, we continue to monitor and evaluate conditions for opening the sailing season based upon the latest guidelines and recommendations from various federal and state governments and health officials.
We look forward to returning to the enjoyment of sailing together again as soon as possible. But for now, we are in a delay.
As we write this in late May, Connecticut is easing into a step-by-step re-opening. Other states have begun this process, too, and as we all cautiously feel our way into resuming a more normalized society we will continue to learn more about the impact of this virus upon us.
As of May 18, Connecticut Governor Lamont’s Executive Order 7PP allows “day camps” to re-open on June 22, 2020, and allows “summer educational programs” to re-open on July 6, 2020. These dates are among the things we are considering about when we might re-open our Program. We hope to begin sailing at some time around these dates.
Please know that our cause is wider than the Atlantic and deeper than the Pacific. We are not defined by the current situation or the size of our sailboats or our facilities. Our goal is to continue to offer persons with special needs the opportunity to enjoy sailing! The safety, well-being, and comfort of our members, staff, volunteers, and the broader community have always been our prime concerns.
We are asking that you follow the Center for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and take measures to protect yourself and others. These measures include avoiding situations with large crowds or where you come in close contact with others, staying home if you do not feel well, frequently washing your hands with soap and water and covering coughs and sneezes.
You can expect regular updates from us via our website concerning when we might begin sailing, and the Guidelines we may incorporate into our participation in SCA. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Have you ever wondered which non-profit charitable organization you could support, knowing how your money is spent?
Two of our board members come from the disabled community. One of members has published several books on brain injury survival.
We know that disabled persons don't just want to live, they want LIFE! Your giving goes 100% to getting disabled individuals and veterans outside and active.
We provide the joy of life that so many miss out on.
