Racing returns to CYCA

Now that NSW has hit its 80 per cent double vaccination target, restrictions have further eased allowing for the return of community sport and the CYCA Sailing Program.

Race 8 of the Winter Series marked our last organised sailing event, 120 days ago! We can’t wait to get back to sailing and enjoying our wonderful playground.

This return though does come with some simple rules to ensure we can keep racing in a safe and enjoyable manner. Most notably:

  • All crew participating in CYCA races must be fully vaccinated or have a medical exemption
  • Crew must stay at home if they are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms including cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or fever
  • All visitors to the CYCA Marina and Clubhouse must be fully vaccinated or have a medical exemption; sign in using the Service NSW QR code; and observe all COVID-19 safety measures
  • When on the water, crew must avoid physical contact and maintain social distancing of 1.5 metres where reasonably practical
  • Do not gather in groups on the CYCA dock
