Stay tuned here for all announcements, cancellations or schedule changes due to the virus situation
- NEW - check out our online learning resources under our new tab LEARNING. We will add new lessons every Wednesday and Saturday until we can get back on the water!
- NEW - due to the April 1st Executive Order issued by Governor DeSantis (See the order HERE) prohibiting all non-essential travel or work outside the home, all sailing activities will be suspended until at least April 30th. Please stay tuned to email and this website for the latest changes. Online Learning tools will still be provided.
- The Venetian Cup Regatta - April 25th - is currently CANCELED. Anyone registered will receive instructions for a refund. We are very sad to cancel this event, but believe it is the safest thing to do at this time.
VYBA will keep all sailors and families updated on cancellations and practice schedule changes as quickly as possible.
VYBA’s expectation is that any time your child is showing any sickness symptoms that your sailor stay home so as to keep their teammates safe and healthy. We also recommend that parents reinforce with your children that they should not be sharing water or food with other sailors at training and that hand washing is important. If you will not be attending any VYBA scheduled event, please follow our standard lines of communication and communicate with your team coach or the Director.
VYBA leadership recommends that all parents follow the health safety and best practices for illness prevention outlined below.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Follow the CDC's recommendations for using a facemask.
- CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including Coronavirus.
- Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms to help prevent the spread of the disease.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
