If you are aged 17 or younger, your parent or guardian must read this and sign below.

Statement of Risk and Liability

This is a statement in which you are informed of the risks of diving at Gildenburgh Water during the Covid-19 outbreak. The statement also sets out the circumstances in which you participate at your own risk.

Your signature on this statement is required as proof that you have received and read this statement. It is important that you read the contents of this statement before signing it. If you do not understand anything contained in this statement, then please discuss it with Ian Forster, the owner of Gildenburgh Water on 01733 351288.

Warning

There can be a serious risk to your health if you contract coronavirus.

You can suffer from acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS); mental health issues like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression; impaired lung function infection which can negatively affect other organs like the heart, kidneys, and brain; other significant long-term health issues that may last after getting over the infection.

Covid-19 Recommended Behaviour At Gildenburgh Water
During A Visit for diving

If you visit Gildenburgh Water to dive, you will need to adopt & cooperate with the following “Safe Seven” diving guidelines.

1. Stay at home if you, or someone you live with, have either a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or loss or change to your sense of smell or taste as per the symptoms above.

2. Check dive availability, call 01733 351288 to reserve your preferred date & time, and then book the 2 hour reserved dive session at https://gildenburgh.com/diveres/. One of the buddy team must book separately, in their own name, and must also state the name of their dive buddy. A diver who is being driven to Gildenburgh by a non-diving parent, must also state the name of that parent. This robust Covid-Secure policy provides us, and the authorities, with essential “track & trace” information in the event of a Covid-19 outbreak among our divers.
Pay by contactless card at Gildy reception when you arrive for a single dive session at £12 per diver OR a 5-dive session pass for £50 per diver.

3. Car share ONLY with Gildenburgh-registered divers in your household. Do not bring spectators or invite them to come separately.

4. Check this website’s home page at https://gildenburgh.com/ before every visit to stay updated with current fast-changing conditions, special arrangements, and last-minute dive availability.

5. Maintain a physical distance of 2 metres or more between your car boot and the boot of adjacent cars in the car park, so you can kit up & dekit before and after your dive from your car boot. The bank of the lake and the area around the entry points must be kept clear at all times. Maintain a physical distance of 2 metres or more between yourself, our staff & other non-household divers, at the surface, as well as on land. Waving to friends meets this recommendation, whereas handshakes, hugs or elbow bumps don’t. Pass others on the left while onsite.

6. Implement all recommended procedures of your training agency during briefings, equipment set up, kitting up, entries, exits, de-kitting and debriefing. Dive site staff reserve the right to monitor this, impose social distancing of divers, or ask you to leave the site.

7. Don your neoprene gloves before you touch the entry handrail or any other communal surfaces. Ensure you don’t touch your face with gloved hands after contact with communal surfaces. Do not touch your buddy’s equipment before, during or after buddy checks. During the dive, perform skills, drills & general diving procedures in line with the recommendations of your diver training agency.
