The NSW Government have eased restrictions to allow sailing to resume under a phased approach. This means that MHYC and other NSW clubs have the opportunity to re-commence their racing and training programs from early June.
The return to sailing is being done in a consistent and coordinated manner thanks to the cooperation of the major Sydney clubs. The Commodores of MHYC, CYCA, RSYS, RANSA, RPAYC, RMYCBB, SASC, MYC and RPEYC have met weekly with Australian Sailing since the Covid-19 pandemic first impacted our programs.
While detailed plans are yet to be finalised and approved, we are hopeful that MHYC’s Wednesday Pursuits will be able to start on June 10 and a modified Saturday racing program can also get underway later that week. Members need to be aware there will be changes to these programs, particularly for related shore-side activities, as clubs are obliged to ensure that sailing at this time is CovidSAFE.
Please stand by for further details which will be released next week.
Looking forward to seeing you on the water soon.
Peter Lewis – Commodore MHYC
