Monday’s announcement from the Victorian Government clearly now permits recreational boating, subject to maintaining at all times the social distancing rules of 1.5m separation (apart from family members you live with), and with no more than 10 people in a group (outside). Club facilities must remain closed, except toilets. For the time being ESC club house including the ground floor will remain closed, in line with the direction on use of facilities, and to protect member and staff health. We expect to receive further guidance from Australian Sailing, and will advise if there are any changes. Hopefully there will be further easing of the restrictions at the end of May.
