Australian Sailing has announced that as from the 28th of September, single handed sailing or with someone (maximum 5 household members) from your household bubble is now permissible as part of your 2 hours of exercise within an unpowered vessel, if you live within 5kms of the club.
If you reside further than 5km from MYC, unfortunately you currently cannot go boating. We are hopeful this will be fully re-instated shortly.
If you reside within 5km, single handed sailing or sailing with someone from your household bubble (up to 5 persons from your household) is now permissible as part of your 2 hours of daily exercise, but it must be in an unpowered vessel. This means it is okay in an Off the Beach dinghy or a yacht – but the yacht cannot have a motor (if your yacht has a motor, even if you don’t use that motor you cannot use that vessel).
The 2-hour limit includes your travel time. You must do all the other normal things including staying within 5km, signing in as you enter the club yard, wearing a face mask while on land, social distancing etc.
Club House & Facilities
The clubhouse, toilets and changing rooms remain closed. ALL members and contractors entering yard must sign in as per the instructions on the gates. This is a government requirement.
If you live within a 5km radius you can visit MYC and check on your vessel whilst you are getting in your daily exercise (i.e. walking or riding). Please sign in and out of the yard as per the sign on the gates.
For those boat owning members who live outside of the 5km radius, you too can now travel outside of your 5km radius to check on your vessel at MYC. Strict conditions and paperwork apply, including it is for emergency maintenance or essential safety purposes only, you have vessel proof of ownership with you and you have verification on MYC letterhead you are a current Member and the vessel is stored at MYC. If you would like a letter verifying your Membership and boat status at MYC please email Tayla firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a strict limit of 10 people in the yard at one time, please check this before entering. This includes members and contractors.
Gates, especially the waterfront gate MUST be locked before going out on the water.
The yard is now open for contractors under restricted conditions to clear existing contracts. No new work can commence, however Australian Sailing are working with the Government now, clarifying the full scope of new works and it is looking promising (more in the next few days as soon as we hear).
