Covid-19 Club Impact:

I hope all members are healthy and coping within the current lifestyle constraints imposed in response to the Covid-19 situation.

PSYC is continuing to monitor and seek advice as to how these constraints affect us in regards to individual, Clubhouse and Club sailing activities, and our obligation to act as a responsible Club.

To reiterate our current position:

  • Clubhouse is closed
  • Organised sailing program is suspended
  • Individual boating can be undertaken at individual level for exercise but cannot be endorsed by the club

Yours sincerely,

John Townsend Commodore and Rick Pacey Vice Commodore
