To the attention of all Quebec Sailing Federation members and sailing enthusiasts,
The actual situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented global situation. Our lives have been disrupted and what we have until now considered as individual rights face a major global health challenge that reminds us of our essential common needs.
How fast we will get through this crisis will most importantly depend on our ability to respect local public health recommendations. In consequence, we ask you to stick to those rules in order to make the combination of our individual efforts a common success that will help us get out of this situation in a coordinated and efficient manner.
We recommend the followings:
These unprecedented decisions will impact us all, however your safety and that of our members, athletes, boaters and fellow citizens remain our top priority.
Thank you in advance for helping us make our sailing community recognized for having done everything in their power to slow down the progression of this pandemic. We can only reaffirm the values of mutual aid, solidarity and responsibility shared around Quebec’s lakes and rivers.
Rest assured that like you, we are very much looking forward to sailing. When the time is appropriate, we can raise awareness and put in place preventive measures that meet the COVID-19 propagation avoidance rules. In the meantime, there are plenty of ways to keep you fit and better prepare for the season while staying at home.
In this time when we are all concerned, take care of yourself!
President of the Quebec Sailing Federation
Stay the course: stay home!
