Beach Closed

ESC NEWS:

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.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR COMMODORE

I would like to update everybody on the current status of club use.

Since we published the last information/ newsletter there have been several changes.

Currently 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.
