COVID-19 Updates

5 August 2020

Message from Captain Karyn Gojnich

Thank you to all our Members who have isolated, been tested and stayed away from the Club if they had any concerns about exposure to COVID-19.  

When coming to our Club please note that our processes have changed and everyone is required to complete our Club Visit Contacts declaration each day they visit. 

We are looking forward to a busy weekend on the water with the final race of the Combined Clubs Winter Series as well as the Ice Breaker Regatta for our one design boats.

COVID update from the Commodore


Dear Members,
 
Further to my email of 29 July I have learned that The Australian Club in Macquarie Street, Sydney, has a live COVID case and has closed for the time being.
 
I am very conscious of a crossover in membership between our two clubs. I therefore regret I must amend my earlier notice  to say:
 
Please do not enter the Squadron by land or water if in the past 14 days you or any member of your household have:

  - visited the Australian Club
  - visited the CYCA or sailed on a CYCA boat
  - visited Thai Rock or The Apollo restaurants in Potts Point or any other 'hot spot’
  - returned from Victoria
  - been unwell
  - had a COVID test and are awaiting the result.

Our priority has to be the health and welfare of our Members, guests and staff at this time. We will review the decision once we have more information from NSW Health.

Visiting the Squadron
May I remind Members and their guests to complete the COVID Contact Tracing Form to help us to streamline the signing-in process. Please do this on the day of your visit. Once submitted, you will receive a confirmation email. Club staff may request sight of this email as you enter the Club. 

This process now applies to dining venues and also around the waterfront.

>> Complete the form here on the day of your visit.
 
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Yours sincerely,
David Ward
Commodore

To ease pressure on the tender service we ask that the skipper and one crew member pick up their vessels prior to racing and make use of the pick up/drop off area to collect their crew. After racing we ask that skippers drop their crew back on the pontoon and take their vessels back to their moorings with one crew member.

Wednesday's tender service runs until 5pm. Please assist Waterfront Staff by dropping crew off at the outer pontoon before returning to your mooring. Maximum capacity on the tenders is 3 passengers. Tender service will run from the outer pontoon. Please access via driveway – strictly no access through boatyard.

Bridge Notice

Regretfully we must advise you of a delay in recommencing Bridge at the Squadron.

The recent escalation of COVID in Victoria and now the clusters in Sydney have made this decision prudent, and in line with our policy of prioritising Members' health.

We will monitor this decision on a weekly basis. In the meantime, please return to online Bridge via BBO.

NB When clubhouse play returns, it will be for Rubber Bridge only. Bookings will only be taken on a weekly basis.

17 June 2020

The NSW Health authorities have announced further relaxation of the COVID-19 restrictions as they relate to recreational boating. 

Sailing clubs are required to undertake a detailed risk assessment and mitigation program taking into account the current COVID-19 restrictions and how we can best comply “where practical” to protect the health of our staff, Members and their families.  Unfortunately, there will be no return to “normal operations” for some time yet and some restrictions will stay in place. 

A reminder that no matter what steps the Club can put in place, Skippers are ultimately responsible for their boats and the safety of the crew. It is important, that from a community perspective, we are all seen to honour both the letter and spirit of the rules which have been designed to protect us all.  Part of our COVID-19 Safe program is educating skippers and crew regarding safe practices on and off their boats.  All skippers accessing boats from RSYS are asked to complete the following:

COVID-19 Skipper Training



All Members wishing to access boats from RSYS are also reminded:

  • To use the tender service, please make a booking with our Waterfront office using the tender mobile 0405 971 800
  • When participating in organised racing, crew lists and COVID-19 declarations are made via SailSys prior to 10am on race day
  • When participating in organised dinghy training, sailors must be registered in advance here

 

We would like to acknowledge the efforts of Australian Sailing in pursuing negotiations with the NSW authorities which have allowed the early return to sailing activities in the harbourThere has also been a very cooperative and supportive liaison between clubs, particularly the CYCA, RSYS, RANSA, MHYC, RPAYC, RMYCBB, SASC, MYC and RPEYC who have collaborated weekly since the pandemic hit.


 

From 13 June 2020

  • Twenty-person limit per boat and social distancing of 1.5m required where reasonably practicable.
  • All activities are required to be non-contact and social distancing of 1.5m maintained where reasonably practicable (Hugging, sitting shoulder to shoulder on the rail/in the cockpit isn’t acceptable, crossing with 1.5m during a tack etc is ok)
  • Recreational boating is exempt from the 4mrule whilst afloat, however the skipper needs to ensure those on board maintain 1.5m social distancing where reasonably practicable
  • Competition is permitted
  • Training is permitted however clubs are required to limit activities to small individual groups with a maximum of 20 participants (inclusive of coaches and support staff);
  • Not more than 1 person per 4mon club grounds and within facilities
  • Change rooms and showers are open for use (RSYS has an elevated cleaning regime)
  • Current Public Health Order needs to be complied with at all times


 

From 1 July 2020 (subject to change)

  • Full contact allowed during training and competition with no limits on crew numbers.
  • Recreational boating is still exempt from the 4mrule whilst afloat, however the skipper needs to ensure those on board maintain social distancing where reasonably practicable whilst not engaged in competition or training.
  • Change rooms and showers are open for use (RSYS has an elevated cleaning regime)
  • Contact tracing record must be kept for all participants, spectators, officials, coaches, staff, contractors, and visitors.
     

The NSW Office of Sport has advised Australian Sailing that the NSW Government will not be following the National Cabinet endorsed Framework for Rebooting Sport in a COVID-19 Environment developed by the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) on Friday 1 May 2020. It will instead rely solely on the NSW Public Health Orders.

Dear Combined Clubs Winter Competitors

Further to last weekend's communication in regards to recording crew contacts, crew details can now be recorded in our race management system, SailSys.
 
As per the NSW Government COVID-19 guidelines, RSYS is obliged to ensure that all skippers provide the Club with a crew contact list for all participants sailing in an RSYS event. The basic steps the skipper needs to complete are:

1.    Log into to your SailSys profile https://app.sailsys.com.au/login
2.    Via your SailSys dashboard (on the left click on account to get the drop down menu and then select crew)
3.    Select the race you wish to allocate crew
4.    Enter the basic contact details of the crew (name, email address and phone number). Whilst the form asks for the Australian Sailing number, this field is not mandatory.
5.    Once a crew member is created for your boat they can be easily selected from the pool of crew for subsequent races.
Select this link for full details on how to complete the crew list via SailSys. If you have any problems please do not hesitate to give the Sailing Office a call on 9017 0152.

All skippers are required to keep crew lists up to date. Any changes must be made prior to 1000 hours on each day that the boat intends to race. Boats not complying with this requirement shall be scored DNC.

.

3 June 2020

Our Clubhouse has re-opened!

The Dining Room serves lunch on Fridays, and dinner from Tuesday to Friday.

Return to COVIDSafe Sailing

Information for Sailors 
Recreational boating is now permitted under the NSW Government Public Health Orders, however these orders may be reversed if boaters are seen to be disregarding the requirements for social distancing or clubs become a source of transmission. 

RSYS is pleased to be able to re-commence sailing during June, but COVID-19 is still with us and the way we sail needs to adapt. We are all obliged to work together to fight the transmission of the virus, so the club has introduced some new requirements for racing. 

At Home 
•    If you are a person with high risk of COVID-19, or have symptoms of the Virus (even if mild), stay at home 
•    It is strongly recommended that all sailors download the Australian Government COVID-19 contact tracing app (COVIDSafe) and keep it active at all times 
•    Any tasks that can be done at home, should be done at home (e.g. crew briefing, debriefing, getting dressed for sailing etc.) 

Before Racing 
To provide for possible tracing, all competing boats are required to register all their crew details (Boat name, crew name and contact number) before each race. The penalty for not registering before the start of racing is disqualification from the race.
To register online visit https://www.rsys.com.au/covid-19/crew-contacts 

Ashore 
The “new normal” for sailing at RSYS and other NSW clubs is GET IN, SAIL & GET OUT.....  
For the foreseeable future there will be no prizegiving get-togethers after sailing.

•    Arrive dressed and ready to sail 
•    Minimise the use of change rooms, bathrooms and communal areas 
•    Shower at home instead of at the Club 
•    The 4m2 rule applies ashore and sailors should maintain at least 1.5m distance 
•    Avoid congregating on the lawn, on the hardstand, waiting for the tender, on the pontoons 
•    Hand hygiene stations are available at a number of locations 

The CCA is open however table bookings must be made in advance to be seated.   For Saturday and Sunday, takeaway sandwiches, sausage rolls, pies, coffee and takeaway drinks will be available from the bar. 

Everyone entering the clubhouse will have to register their name and contact details. 
Please visit https://www.rsys.com.au/covid-19/dining-contacts

Afloat 
•    There is a maximum of 10 persons aboard any boat 
•    Where possible, sailors should maintain at least 1.5m distance apart 
•    No stacking the rail – crew must remain at least 1.5m apart while on the rail 
•    No unnecessary body contact (e.g. hand shaking, high fives) 
•    No sharing of drink bottles, clothing, food and towels etc. 
•    Avoid sharing of equipment – bring your own lifejacket, gloves etc. 
•    No spinnakers while racing,

Tender Service
Carriage is limited to one tender skipper and two passengers.  The pick-up area on the inner pontoon is clearly marked with signage.  We kindly ask that you are patient with our Waterfront staff who are running the tender service and maintain social distancing whilst waiting. 

To minimise the wait and reduce tender service demand a designated area on the inner pontoon will be available for the essential movement of crew or equipment to or from your vessel. Keeping the inner pontoon clear other than for these quick drop and go will allow access for a greater number of vessels.  Dockmasters will be available to assist. 

Outer Pontoon 
Bookings must be made in advance with the Waterfront office using the tender mobile 0405 971 800.  

Boat owners must use the area specifically demarcated for yachts. Our Dock Master will restrict the number of vessels in the Pond at any time and will seek assurances that the number of persons onboard complies with current guidelines. 

Boats are welcome to stay in the Pond for up to two hours only. They must be secured with your own dock lines and may not be left unattended. There is no overnight berthing available. Members may borrow the hoses and dock trollies stored with the Dock Master but must sanitise them prior to return. Boat owners are reminded to ensure their passengers observe social distancing rules whilst on the Pontoon.

It is mandatory to call on VHF 73 on approach and before docking on the Outer Pontoon.  
Strict use of VHF radio is requested to ensure docking is co-ordinated.  
 

Hardstand and Dinghy storage
Members may access their personal vessels stored at the club and launch them for sailing in the area specifically demarcated for these boats.

Bookings must be made in advance with the Waterfront office using the tender mobile 0405 971 800.

The Jib Cranes may be used for launch and retrieval, provided social distancing rules are observed. The dock master will operate the cranes to ensure contamination is reduced.

Optis and Lasers may be launched from the Pond in the area specifically demarcated for Dinghies, provided social distancing rules are observed. To ensure the launching ramps are located appropriately, it is essential to notify the Waterfront office when intending to launch and for sailors to acknowledge that RSYS is not able to provide an on-water safety support.

Social distancing  - 1.5 metres, hygiene and adequate spacing (1 person per 4m2) must be maintained at all times.    Remember – Everyone participates at their own risk.

Following a meeting this morning between Sydney area yacht club Commodores, we are pleased to announce that recreational boating, training and sailing competition will recommence from the Squadron on Saturday 6 June.

This news is 'hot off the press' and we will publish a fuller update, including appropriate new risk management procedures, on this page.  In the meantime, please note there have been new procedures introduced when accessing the Club and the Pond.  These procedures are essential for the protection of both our Members and staff so we encourage everyone to take the time to read the latest updates.
 
Again, we thank all Members for their forbearance and support during these challenging times. Through our many online offerings, we are hoping to keep our community connected. If you have any concerns, questions or suggestions please do not hesitate to contact us via an email to rsys@rsys.com.au.

Re-opening of the Squadron Stage 1 (Updated from 14 May)


Current RSYS Operations

From Friday 15th May 2020 the NSW Government’s easing of restrictions will take effect. RSYS welcomes these relaxations as a club we are emerging from hibernation very cautiously to ensure the Club is a safe location for Members.  We encourage all members to download the COVIDSafe app and help play an important role in curbing the spread of the virus.

Please note the following conditions remain in place and must be abided by:

  • Social distancing, 1.5 metres and hygiene, and with adequate spacing (1 person per 4m2).
  • Stay at home if you are sick
  • Members visiting the Club to use the Waterfront facilities will be required to book in advance and also sign in at the start of each visit so the Club can maintain a register of who has been on site for possible subsequent ‘tracing’. 


Waterfront Services 

The tender service is operating seven days a week during Waterfront operating hours:

Weekdays 7.30am – 4pm

Weekends   8am – 5pm

The Tender service will run from the Outer Pontoon on weekdays but move to the Inner Pontoon on weekends  Carriage is limited to one tender skipper and two passengers from the same household.  The pick-up area is clearly marked with signage.  We kindly ask that you are patient with our Waterfront staff who are running the tender service and maintain social distancing whilst waiting. Please call 0405 971 800 on approach to minimise the wait.

We regret that the Walker Bay dinghies are not currently available.


Outer Pontoon

Members may access and use the outer pontoon for the purpose of maintaining and preparing their boats in anticipation of the resumption of sailing. Please note this permission does not extend to sub-contractors. 

Bookings must be made in advance with the Waterfront office using the tender mobile 0405 971 800.

It is mandatory to call on VHF 73 on approach and before docking on the Outer Pontoon.  
Strict use of VHF radio is requested to ensure docking is co-ordinated.  The Inner Pontoon arm is closed.

Boat owners must use the area specifically demarcated for yachts. Our Dock Master will restrict the number of vessels in the Pond at any time and will seek assurances that the number of persons onboard complies with current guidelines. 

Boats are welcome to stay in the Pond for up to two hours only. They must be secured with your own dock lines and may not be left unattended. There is no overnight berthing available. Members may borrow the hoses and dock trollies stored with the Dock Master but must sanitise them prior to return. Boat owners are reminded to ensure their passengers observe social distancing rules whilst on the Pontoon.
 

Hardstand and Dinghy storage

Bookings must be made in advance with the Waterfront office using the tender mobile 0405 971 800.

The Jib Cranes may be used for launch and retrieval, provided social distancing rules are observed. The dock master will operate the cranes to ensure contamination is reduced.

Member’s Shed

Members may access their storage lockers in the Members’ Shed, however please comply with the social distancing rules, be prompt and do not touch any items except your own. Members may not conduct DIY work in the Members’ Shed.
 

Boatshed

The Boatshed remains open for all your maintenance and repair needs. The team has undertaken an intensive program of cleaning and realigned staff shifts to minimise any risks associated with the work environment.   Our Waterfront staff are providing a complimentary daily visual inspection to Members with boats on the Hardstand, RSYS moorings and those who are signed up to the RSYS Tender service.

Please contact repairs@rsys.com.au or call 9017 0161 to discuss your requirements.

Members may not conduct DIY work on boats that are on the Hardstand for work being undertaken by the Boatshed.
 

Clubhouse

Stage 1 relaxation on dining restriction for Clubs allows up to 10 diners at a time. The Committee and Management have considered the logistics and found the options to be neither practical or equitable. We have developed a roadmap for opening the Clubhouse after the lifting of restrictions in Stage 2, that will allow up to 20 diners at a time. No doubt there will be changes to this plan between now and then as we receive new information from the Government and industry sources. Staff and Members alike are keen to re-open as soon as possible, but we will only do so once we are certain it is in the best interests of all and can be achieved safely.

Home Dining Service
The Squadron kitchen offers a variety of cooked meals for Members, both Takeaway and Home Delivery.

Monday to Friday, 3 – 8pm (last orders 7.30pm)
Saturdays, 12 – 2pm & 3 – 8pm (last orders 7.30pm)
Sundays, 12 – 2pm.
