9 July 2021 @ 4:50 pm – Update from Australian Sailing

Today the Premier announced tighter restrictions for the Greater Sydney Area, including the Central Coast, Blue Mountains, Wollongong and Shellharbour, to bring the current COVID-19 outbreak under control.  From 5pm today, 9th July:
* The new rules allow two people to exercise together, or more if they are from the same household.
* This means you can go sailing with one other person, or more if they are all from your household.
* If you do go sailing, please get in, go sailing, go home, keep your distance from others at your club, beach or boat ramp.

9 July 2021 @ 4:45 pm – Sailing school and vacation care & after school care

Sailing school activities will not proceed until further notice.
 
Vacation care (aka holiday camps) is active.  We will continue to run these programmes while we believe it is safe to do so and we have permission from the NSW office of sport.
We consider the school holiday camps and after school care to be an import community service and we will run these camps if possible.
We will be keeping participants in groups of 10 or less, conducting the activities outside (as much as possible), encouraging the use of hand sanitiser and face masks, and will be conducting temperature tests on entry.
The focus is vacation care and after school care, not training.  We will be conducting sailing activities and the Instructors and Coaches will be appropriate for the skills of the attendees.

25 June 2021 @ 1:00 pm – Traffic delays

The COVID testing facility, adjacent to the  Club, is in full swing.  As a result delays of up to 90 minutes are being experienced.   We advise parking near the ferry wharf or other location and walking to the Club if possible.  As a result of lobbying by the Club, the traffic arrangements on Vickery avenue were changed on Wednesday 23 June 2021.  This has reduced the impact of the testing facility on the Club.  Further negotiation with local council is continuing.
