Club Announcement - ALL organised sailing & training suspended

Dear Members

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

21/03/2020

Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club has been closely monitoring government advice as well as interpreting changing community expectations. With the safety of our members, guests and staff being our highest priority we have made significant changes in various ‘on-shore’ aspects of our Club operation.

Unfortunately, the time has come to consider our ‘on-water’ events. Effective immediately we have suspended all RPAYC organised sailing and training events until 30 April 2020. We will review our position prior to that date and communicate an update to members in due course.

Despite the suspension of organised sailing, we encourage you to still get out on the water.

Boating with your family is a great way of social distancing and is beneficial to your health and wellbeing.

Our Club ‘on-shore’ operations continue, albeit with some adjustment. We have received instructions from government limiting the number of people allowed in various areas of the Clubhouse based on the size of each room and compliance with social distancing requirements. RPAYC staff are committed to ensuring that we remain open for as long as we are able and ask for your understanding and support during this time.

Our marina, boatyard services, administration, food and beverage operation and our gym continue to operate so please support these aspects of your Club and our valued boatyard and retail tenants.

The decision to suspend ‘on-water’ events has not been made lightly. Organised sailing events at the Alfred’s are important to our Club culture, it’s ‘what we do’ and have been doing so for over 150 years. We look forward to getting you back out there as soon as it is possible.

Thank you for your on-going support and understanding. We will continue to keep you updated.

Please look after yourself and the health of those around you.

 

Craig Evans

General Manager, RPAYC
