Covid-19 Policy and Safety Plan

Updated March 2022

At Allsail we care about your health and safety.

This plan has been modified to be consistent with the current Public Health Orders regarding Covid 19 and the clearly higher transmissability of the Omicron variant.

Sailing and chartering on Pittwater with Allsail is now on –  but only for fully vaccinated adults (accompanying children under 16 do not have to be vaccinated).

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 should 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 at Allsail and on Allsail yachts.

  • Customers are asked to wait outside and not enter the office unless invited
  • Charter and other yacht briefings will generally be limited to the skipper and one other.
  • No vehicle transfers will be available.
  • 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.
