BUSA statement in response to Covid-19

The BUSA committee has been closely monitoring the evolving situation in respect of the Covid-19 global pandemic as well as reviewing government & RYA advice and consulting with BUCS. BUSA, as an organisation representing and supporting student sailing, must put the health and safety of its members, volunteers and general public first. The following principles will be adopted by BUSA throughout the coming academic year:

  1. We will continue to follow all guidance presented (Government, RYA, BUCS) to protect the health of our members
  2. We will endeavour to freeze cost increases and implement strategies to preserve BUSA and our member clubs
  3. We will ensure the quality & integrity of the competition we offer is maintained, in all disciplines.

We will be planning for all of our BUSA Championships to happen, adopting the principles above. This means BUSA/BUCS Fleet Racing Championships is still planned for November, with alternative arrangements being formulated if this becomes not possible.
