The Council, in consultation with the local police, has closed all City of Port Phillip beaches from 6 pm Friday 27th March.
While people will still be able to access the beaches as a thoroughfare, such as for a run or walking a dog, the closure is aimed at beaches not being used as a gathering place during the COVID-19 crisis. Swimming is allowed at this stage, as long as social distancing and mass gathering rules are obeyed. Boat launches at St Kilda Marina are unaffected.
I would like
to update everybody on the current status of club use.
published the last information/ newsletter there have been several changes.
the ground floor of the club is open for normal club activities. We encourage
all members to continue their on water enjoyment, be it sailing, windsurfing,
SUP etc. However it becomes paramount that anyone who ventures out from the
club on to the water does so in a safe and responsible manner. We recommend
taking into account your own on water capabilities vs the conditions of wind,
sea state, and any forecast changes. We also highly recommend not leaving the
beach without one or more, fellow members.
Important Information on the
Elwood Sailing Club is following the advice provided by
health authorities for individuals and establishments like our own: our
priority is the health of members and staff.
As the advice from authorities is updated our actions will change and we
ask that members similarly remain aware of, and follow public health
