Covid-19 Policy and Safety Plan

Updated 11 October 2021

At Allsail we care about your health and safety.

This plan has been modified to be consistent with the current Public Health Orders effective 11 October 2021 for Greater Sydney.

If you live in the Greater Sydney Area then sailing and chartering on Pittwater with Allsail is now permitted but only for fully vaccinated adults (accompanying children under 16 do not have to be vaccinated).

There will be compulsory QR check in (using the Service NSW app) on arrival. All adults will need to show proof of vaccination or medical exemption and their address.

If any of your party have been to a designated Covid Hotspot or listed venue in the last 14 days, is subject to an isolation order, has been in contact with someone who has or is suspected of having Covid-19 – or is even slightly unwell with flu like symptoms – then they must NOT come sailing.

In line with the latest Covid-19 Public Health Order and sensible Covid safety practices here are some guidelines when sailing on our larger cruising yachts:

  • The skipper must ensure there is 2 square metres of space for each person on board when on deck/ 2 square metres when below deck.
  • As a guide the vessel day time capacity is appropriate for those on deck and the vessel overnight berthing capacity is appropriate for those below at any one time.
  • Participants not from the same household should maintain social distancing where practical (the 1.5 metre rule).
  • Participants must ensure they practice good hygiene.
  • Wear a mask where appropriate or required by the health order

To assist with compliance we have instituted the following on Allsail yachts.

  • Cleaning solutions, wipes and hand sanitiser are available on each vessel. Vessels are cleaned after each use.
  • We ask that all sailors – including charterers and their guests – always wear sailing gloves whilst handling equipment (eg winch handles, cleats and lines) -and bring your own sanitiser and wipes to be sure. We have a selection of sailing gloves for sale at Allsail.

Please make yourself familiar with the Covid-19 guidelines included in your yacht’s Safety Management System Document.
