Commodore’s Update – July 7th 2020

Dear RMYS members

The State government has announced this afternoon that Melbourne will go back to State 3 restrictions as of 11.59 pm tomorrow (Wednesday). The exact implications of this for sailing are not clear yet and we will be following up with government and Australian Sailing to get clarity on this. However, the ABC News website states:

“Subject to conditions, fishing, boating, tennis, golf and surfing can CONTINUE.”

The conditions are not specified and we will advise on what they are as soon as we can. Please bear with us until we have a clear picture of what the renewed restrictions will mean for the Squadron.

Charles Meredith,
