COVID -19 Sailing Policy for Erie Islands Sailing School

As the CoronaVirus continues to be ever present in our environment and day to day lives, Erie Islands Sailing School has developed the current policy considering local, state, and federal guidelines. Our goal at Erie Islands Sailing School is for you, your sailing peers, and instructions to learn new skills in a safe and fun environment. Due to the proximity of students and instructors on boats as well as hands on learning, Erie Islands Sailing School will require students to be fully vaccinated for classes.

Masks may be required at certain indoor facilities and we ask that you follow any mask requirements per the facility your class may use (such as marinas or public classrooms). Masking on boats should be worn while inside the sailboat cabin and head areas. Open areas will be a personal preference.

Should a student feel ill or exhibit any of the common symptoms with CoronaVirus (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html) 14 days or less prior to your scheduled class we ask that you contact us immediately to assess the situation and/or reschedule your class time. Please be aware that you may be sharing the class with other students. Erie Islands Sailing School will communicate with students if an instructor becomes ill and a class requires rescheduling.

Erie Islands Sailing School will continue to monitor changing circumstances and update our policy accordingly. Updated 11/2021
