Marine Area Command have issued the statement below clarifying that the new gathering rules of 5 people outdoors DO NOT apply to any kind of boat.
We have been advised that this includes sailing boats whether open or with a cabin.
Marine Area Command Published the following on 14 September:
The easing of restrictions within the Greater Sydney 'stay at home' area effective yesterday, 13 September, whereby; you can attend an outdoor gathering in a public space of up to 5 people for exercise or outdoor recreation (aged 16 years or over and fully vaccinated) DOES NOT relate to boating.
Boating is still limited to the same household members or if from different households a maximum of 2 people. Vessels are considered a 'premise' therefore this outdoor easing does not relate to vessels.
