New COVID-safe sailing rule – revised

Message from RSYS Captain of Sailing Karyn Gojnich.

Australian Sailing received advice from NSW Health last week in regard to community sport in the current COVID environment. Sailors are requested to comply with the recommendations from the Chief Health Officer to all community sports, to avoid inter-regional mixing, in particular within the Greater Sydney area. NSW Health have requested State Sporting Organisations for water-based sports in Greater Sydney (i.e. Sydney Harbour) to designate ‘regions’. Australian Sailing have followed this request for the longer term benefits of the sport and put forward regional zones as requested. These recommendations are in play at this stage until the end of September.

Over the next five weeks, to help discourage travelling for community sport, it is recommended that skippers and crew are only allowed to race in organised events out of RSYS with those residing in Area A. As always, skippers take responsibility for the health and safety of their crew. Skippers will need to decide how best they can comply with the new recommendations while still safely manning their boats. This is a change to the way many boats and clubs would normally operate. We request that you follow the recommendations to ensure that sailing complies with NSW Health recommendations for sport.

RSYS understands that the introduction of the ‘Sailing Regions’ may potentially hinder some boats and crew from being able to compete. As a result, all races scheduled until the end of September will be non-pointscore races. This decision has been taken so as to not disadvantage those skippers who may feel they are unable to race because they, or members of their crew, live outside the designated club region.

Our Academy offerings for Tackers and Keelboat courses will be deferred until the end of this five week period and we hope that it can restart training courses in October. View the Sailing Academy pages here

Please note:
• It is still possible for boats from other regional zones to join us on the water for racing.
• It is still possible for all Members to come to the Club.
• Everyone is required to complete our Club Visit Contacts declaration for each day you visit the Club.

Yours in sailing,
Karyn Gojnich
RSYS Club Captain
