Update from the General Manager - Removal of Sailing Regions

I am delighted to advise that as of this Saturday, 26 September, the ‘Sailing Regions’ that were introduced in August will be removed.
 
This news follows announcements that were made earlier today from NSW Health, NSW Office of Sport and Australian Sailing.
 
What this means for racing at RPAYC:

  • As of this Saturday there will no longer be any ‘regional’ restrictions for competitors and volunteers involved in our racing. 
  • In line with our previous communications, yacht racing will remain non-pointscore until the conclusion of racing on Wednesday 30 September 2020. Racing after next Wednesday will return to pointscore competition. 
  • The removal of ‘Sailing Regions’ does not ease other health orders and RPAYC is required to continue complying with our COVID Plan, including the restrictions on numbers of people allowed in our Clubhouse, the holding of events (including presentations), social distancing, remaining seated in hospitality areas, our sign-in/ sign-out procedures, etc. 
  • The Clubhouse remains open following racing and both members and non-members are welcome to attend within the maximum limits as set by NSW Health. 

The easing of these restrictions is great news and certainly a step in the right direction, however I would like to remind all members that we must not become complacent and continue to comply with current health measures to ensure that restrictions will be lifted as soon as possible.
 
Please look after yourself and those around you.
 
Kind regards,

Craig Evans
General Manager
