Thursday Snippets, 23 July

     Hi everyone.      Very quiet for sailing in Melbourne during this current lockdown period – both in terms of sailing activity and wind strength. The odd boat out on Albert Park Lake. At the northern end of Port Philip a few Lasers out from Port Melbourne a couple of days per week and the odd Sabre from Black Rock. A few sail boarders from St Kilda, and a few keel boats from the top of the bay keel boat clubs.

Recreational sailing is possible for exercise in single handed dinghy boats if you are so inclined, now with face mask or bandana type cover if 12 years or over. Double handed boat if from same family, living at same address. Relevant government restrictions on sport from 22 July are on

The only access to Albert Sailing Club is by members taking their boat to or from the club boatyard. To do so sign in in foyer and directly proceed to boatyard. Members can use club toilets, but not changerooms or any other facilities Lock gates and doors and wipe all shared surfaces you touch.

Virtual drinks and chat for ASC members and supporters via Zoom next saturday afternoon 1st August is being organised. Details in next week’s Snippets.
