Covid Update June 4, 2021

For your information I post part of the information from Australian Sailing today regarding Regional Victoria.

Regional Victoria

  • There are no restrictions on the reasons to leave home but staying COVID Safe remains important. Face masks are required outdoors where physical distancing of 1.5m cannot be maintained, (you do not need to wear a face mask if exercising strenuously)
  • Recreational Sailing may resume, competition sailing is not permitted
  • Groups must be limited to 10 people
  • Access to communal Change rooms and toilets is allowed. Club houses to remain closed.


Given recreational sailing is allowed in Regional Victorian, by inference recreational fishing would also be permitted.



Mandatory ID Checks

The State Government has confirmed that venues in Regional Victoria now must check identification to confirm whether patrons are from Metropolitan Melbourne. This applies to any venues that are open in Regional Victoria but closed in Metropolitan Melbourne – such as restaurants, non-essential retail, and personal care, for instance.
