The easing of restrictions over the weekend gets us closer to racing however as sailing is ignored in all the announcements, interpretation is required.
All Melbourne yacht clubs are waiting for direction from Australian Sailing which is working through the detail and communicating with government. We are hopeful of having something this week and then being able to determine the appropriate sailing programme.
We are also working with our caterer to ensure that when sailing resumes a food and beverage service will be provided. Current restrictions make that tricky however it will happen.
While everyone is obviously keen to get back to racing and checking restrictions to see when that can happen, the most important priority is the health and welfare of our members, volunteers and staff. This virus is still around and extremely infectious, none of us want a seriously ill member(s) and RMYS does not want to be the next COVID cluster.
