Sailing Co-ops amid Covid-19

Hi all
Our sailing co-op is shut down due to Covid(of course). Having said that, where we live seems to be flattening the curve better than other areas and there might be hope for us to interact with others in restricted ways in the near future.
What are other sailing co-ops doing (or planning to do), to get people out on the water again.

Re: Sailing Co-ops amid Covid-19

As a way of example, of changes in practices for a sailing coop, I'll just pulldown one from the web at random and not in anyway be derogatory about the wonderful attributes of any sailing coop.


Snipets thereof:

"Membership meetings are at 7:30 p.m. the first Monday of the month at the Club."

With social distancing meetings would likely be best as virtual, or at least with full social distancing protocols and sanitization practices, including limitation of occupancy / perhaps split meeting sessions.

Next down on the page is picture of 4 sailboats, presumably of the cooperatives fleet, at anchor rafted side by side sterns tide to land.
Clearly no rafting, or any commingling of non-cohabitants on any boat, that is to say, family cruises, not friends and family cruises, or cloise gathering of adjacency of boats at slips [keep separation].

Will need specialized sanitation procedures of the boats that are exchanged, including the peripherals, such as cooking, eating, drinking. Sanitation of the head, extra caution on pumpouts, water storage, etc.

Next on the webpage:

"Enjoy Fellowship and Sailing

Along with regular weekend sails, the Co-op also has several Club Cruises throughout the year. The schedule of activities from sailing to social is planned each year with the interests of the members in mind. From picnics, to guest speakers at our monthly meetings, the Co-op makes a real effort to provide opportunity and companionship for all members."

Socializing at significant distances, and small groups, not as depicted seated shoulder to shoulder on a extend set of picnic tables.
