Message from the Commodore


Dear Members,

I provide a further update for members to clarify the vaccination policy for people entering the RGYC precinct.

Effective 11.59pm on Thursday, 20 October 2021, any person 16 years or older entering the RGYC precinct must be fully vaccinated or be exempted through the presentation of exemption certification.

To clarify, persons under 16 years of age are able to enter the RGYC precinct if not fully vaccinated. The precinct includes buildings, yard, marina, lawns and waterways.

Proof of Vaccination

When members and visitors check-into the Club via the QR Code, they need to show staff your phone’s check-in confirmation screen, which includes vaccination status if you have linked the COVID-19 digital certificate to the Service Victoria app.

The confirmation screen shows a green tick to show that you have checked in, your name and the words ‘Valid Certificate’.

The club is not permitted to keep or store this information.

Other eligible proofs of vaccination include a COVID-19 digital certificate on the smartphone wallet or a paper copy of the members’ Immunisation History Statement or an eligible proof of exemption.

Once Again, Stay Connected, Stay Safe, Get Vaccinated and Let’s Go Sailing!

Stuart Dickson
