The Board of the Glenmore Sailing Club hopes you and those you know are healthy and well during this pandemic. Keep practicing physical distancing... we will get through this. The health and safety of our members and the public participating in the Club's programming continues to be our main priority.
We will update this page as we have additional information.

Cohort families and groups (Read and follow)
Cohorts are small groups of people whose members do not always keep 2 metres apart. This is an agreement to maintain physical distancing from everyone else.
Under Stage 2 of relaunch, there is more flexibility for cohort groups:
- members of one household can partner with other households to create a cohort family, up to 15 people maximum
All members in a cohort must:
Alberta government source
- be completely committed to practicing physical distancing from people outside the cohort family
- be healthy and not show any COVID-19 symptoms (see the full symptom list)
- not have underlying medical conditions
- not be at high risk
- have not traveled outside Canada in the last 14 days
No Traveling to Regattas This Year
From the Alberta Government’s Guidance for Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation – Stage 2, page 4 "Travel" section
"For Stage 2 of Relaunch, activities should be restricted to local opportunities. This means within a neighbourhood, town or municipality. Participants should not seek sport, physical activity and recreation opportunities in other regions, or out of province. Cross-jurisdictional, or inter-regional, play should not occur at this stage."
Regions are defined by municipal boundaries. Each region is either:
- a municipality of 10,000 or greater population: a city, town or municipal district (or county)
- communities smaller than 10,000 are included in the surrounding municipal district. Communities include First Nations reserves, Metis Settlements and towns.”
- The Glenmore Reservoir is open.
