This afternoon both RPAYC and RMYC were contacted by Broken Bay Water Police asking us to advise our members that they can not stay overnight anchored or moored on your boat even if it’s only 2 persons. They advise that you can go out on your boat briefly but can not stop to have a bite to eat or sleep. Those not complying with regulations and directions of the police may be fined.
Whilst the message to ‘Stay at Home and only go out if essential’ remains in place, Transport for NSW has also just updated its information for boating to show what activity is permitted and not permitted under the restrictions.
Significantly, there is advice that access to your vessel or mooring to maintain or service it, is permitted under the social distancing restrictions. This is considered undertaking legal obligations or obtaining goods or services.
If in doubt, don’t go out!
Stay at Home this Easter.
General Manager, RPAYC
