COVID-19 Notice

Tender and Pond Usage Guidelines
23 March 2021

Tender
Capacity on the tenders is back to normal. Please access the tender service via the driveway as there is strictly no access through boatyard. To ease the pressure on the tender service and to reduce waiting times, we ask that skippers wait for their crew where possible before boarding the tender. After racing we ask that where possible skippers drop some crew off on the pontoon before returning to the mooring. Skipper/crew are requested to assist the tender drivers by being ready for pick up on time. A maximum of a TWO-minute wait time before the tender driver must move on to the next pick up.

Tender service hours
Monday & Tuesday until 4pm
Wednesday until 5pm
Thursday & Friday until 4pm
Saturday & Sunday until 6pm
Pick up/drop off area is a 5 minute zone, available to collect and drop off crew members. Strictly no berthing anywhere on the inner pontoon.

Pond
2-hour berthing is booking only.
Bookings must be made with the Waterfront Team, call 9017 0161 or email louise@rsys.com.au. On weekends call the Dockmaster 0405 971 800. Strictly no vessels to be left unattended at any time unless authorised by Waterfront Manager or Dock Master. 
All vessels entering the pond must contact Dockmaster via VHF radio channel 73 (call sign “Squadron Tender”  weekends only) or call 0405 971 800.

The Waterfront Team thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Dear RSYS Members & guests,

The current COVID situation in Greater Sydney is very volatile.  As a club, the health and welfare of our Members and staff continues to be of the highest priority.

We are guided by NSW Health, our total capacity at the club is restricted to 300, ensuring that  we have 4 square metres of space in indoor areas and 2 square metres of space in outdoor areas.

We are now using the NSW Government QR code system for Members and guests checking in to the Club in all areas (Dining areas / Tenders / Hardstand.)  Please enter the clubhouse via the CCA sail area.  Access to Level 4 (Reception) is currently restricted to assist with the COVID sign-in procedures. There is now an additional Host desk under the sail in the CCA to streamline this sign in procedure.

When racing, all sailors are still required to be registered via SailSys before the race start.

All staff in a customer related role will be wearing face masks, and we ask that Members also wear a mask when visiting the Fort Denison Cellar, Wudyong House Crested Goods Outlet, all indoor office areas including Reception, the Waterfront Office, the Sailing Office, the Accounts & Administration office.

Dining reservations
