Loco Parentis

GBR 420 Class Class matters

Dear Sailors and Parents,
At the Spring Championships at Weymouth at the weekend a number of sailors appeared at registration and were unable to provide a parent to sign for them as they had simply been left there, with parents having gone home.

I would like to remind everyone that if the helm or crew are under 18 an adult must be in loco parentis and should have agreed to take on that role for those respective sailors.

It would be unfortunate if we had to refuse entry for sailors not meeting these basic requirements.

Nick Bacon, Class Chairman.
