COVID-19 Notice

29 July 2020

Sailing under COVID-19 Restrictions

Tenders are all limited to 3 passengers to comply with social distancing guidelines. To ease pressure on the tender service we ask that the skipper and one crew member pick up their vessels prior to racing and make use of the pick up/drop off area to collect their crew. After racing we ask that skippers drop their crew back on the pontoon and take their vessels back to their moorings with one crew member.

Wednesday’s tender service runs until 5pm. Please assist Waterfront Staff by dropping crew off at the outer pontoon before returning to your mooring. Maximum capacity on the tenders is 3 passengers. Tender service will run from the outer pontoon. Please access via driveway – strictly no access through boatyard.

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.

2 hour berthing is by booking only. Bookings can be made with the Waterfront Team, call 9017 0161 or email On weekends call 0405 971 800.
