Resumption of Sailing for Clubs on Albert Park Lake
The Albert Sailing Club and Albert Park Yacht Club clubrooms and facilities were both closed in mid March, and currently remain closed. Earlier in the week the Victorian Government made announcements on easing of some of the restrictions, including on sport and recreational activities from midnight on Tuesday 12th May. Recreational boating is now permissable, with restrictions. A draft plan for resumption of recreational sailing for Sailing Clubs on Albert Park Lake has been developed taking into account Government and Australian Sailing prescriptions and advice. This plan had its initial consideration at a club sub-committee meeting on Thursday evening. At this stage there are matters which are unclear and need clarification. There are also hygiene items and processes which need to be put in place for the health and safety of people using any club facilities. The clubs thus remains closed, until outstanding items can be addressed. The objective is to resolve these items as quickly as possible.

Final call for items for the next Mudpuddler Newsletter. Send your articles, stories, photos, ditties or whatever to our Editor Jamie via

The club website was down for a week in early May. It is now back up and running with a different visual appearance, but essentially the same content. There is still some work to be done on the Home Page to be undertaken in the next week or two. Thanks Luke Tupper for the website update.
