Overall Guidelines:

  • You must observe all Public Health Orders and the COVID-19 Plans of the Drummoyne Sailing Club (DSC) at all times and in priority to this plan (in the case of inconsistencies).
  • If you, your skipper, your crew or anyone close to these people:
    • develop symptoms of fever, sore throat, dry cough, or fatigue
    • have visited Victoria in the last 14 days
    • have attended any of the reported case locations listed on the NSW Health website
    • are waiting on a Covid19 test result, or
    • are required under the Public Health Orders to self-isolate; you are not permitted to attend DSC nor participate in any sailing or training activities.  If a boat is unable to race in an organised competition as set out above, the boat will be awarded average points.
  • As far as practicable please keep 1.5m apart at all times.
  • It is the responsibility of all skippers to collect and retain for 28 days the details of all crew sailing on their boat. These details must be able to be produced for contact tracing if required.
  • DSC will maintain a register to collect contact details (full name and either phone or email) for all sailors, officials, parents/carers and spectators attending the training or sailing. This information will be passed onto NSW Heath in the event that it is required for contact tracing.  DSC are required to keep these details for 28 days.
  • Access to the Drummoyne Sailing Club for dining is only via the club’s main entrance level. Access for aquatic activities will be available via the Sailor’s Bar on the lower car park level.  Please note the numbers of members and guests allowed in the club and on the lower level are limited and contact details and ID will be requested.
