Message from the Commodore – Tuesday, 27 July 2021

Dear Members,

In line with the Victorian Government’s announcement today, there will be an easing of COVID-19 restrictions from midnight tonight (Tuesday, 27 July 2021). RGYC will re-open, as per standard operating hours, from tomorrow, Wednesday 28 July, 2021. 

All updated information regarding COVID-19 restrictions can be found via the State Government’s website HERE. For the full table of restrictions, please see HERE.

I advise Members and guests that masks must be worn everywhere – indoors and outdoors, unless eating or drinking. It remains compulsory to check in via the signed QR barcodes onsite.

The Yot and Member’s Bar will open tomorrow. There is a maximum patron capacity of 100 people indoors and 300 outdoors for seated service only. The density quotient is 1 person per 4sqm. Group bookings are limited to 10 people.

In terms of sailing, we are able to resume club organised sailing, including racing and training.

The above settings are set to remain in place for the next 14 days.

I thank Members for your ongoing cooperation.

Stuart Dickson
