6/26/20 Update from the Vice Commodore

Dear Members of Wet Pants Sailing Association,

Starting this weekend, the Town of Islip expects to be opening the bathrooms at the Sayville Beach Marina Park. The Wet Pants club building, in accordance with NYS Guidelines and the directives we received through our ongoing communication with the Town of Islip, will not open this weekend for member use.

However, we are pleased to inform everyone that in accordance with the NYS revised reopen plan (Reopening New York – Sports and Recreation Guidelines) the Town of Islip has provided written approval for the Wet Pants Sailing Association club building under lease from the Town of Islip to reopen, effective July 6th.

Here are an initial few key points:

As a member based association, each member will be responsible for following the government guidance.

The entire building will be open, including bathrooms.

The Executive Committee is working first and foremost to ensure the safety of our members. We will be finalizing plans so we are ready to hit the ground running on July 6th. Please expect that there will be safety, sanitary, and reduced capacity requirements.

To best ensure our organization is compliant with the newest and rigid standards, the WPSA board of directors is in the process of finalizing a contract with a licensed and insured cleaning service that will regularly clean and disinfect in accordance with CDC guidelines.

As we receive additional guidance from the Town of Islip, we will continue to update the membership. We appreciate your patience and support as our volunteers work through these unprecedented times.

Stay Safe,

Joseph Klein
Vice Commodore
Wet Pants Sailing Association
