Recreational boating banned from today (9/4/2020)
I hope everyone is well and that you are finding new pleasures during this extraordinary time.
From today, Victoria is closing boat ramps, piers, jetties, and other marine infrastructure to recreational boating and fishing activities. Sadly, this means kayaking and canoeing is now banned.
Over the coming weeks, the committee will be working on ways to ensure that all INCC Yarra Paddlers can stay connected over the short-term and that when recreational activities return to normal, we can re-activate the club with even greater involvement and engagement with members. We would love to hear from our members with creative and fun ideas – please email your thoughts to me.
Here is the latest media release from Marine Safety Victoria, giving notice of closed boat ramps and facilities, along with what activities are included within the recreational boating ban.
If you have any questions, please contact me via the link above.
Have a happy and safe Easter
PS Everyone will be relieved to know that Deb Bennett, our President, arrived safely back in Sydney last week after being locked down in Peru for several weeks. She will be back in Victoria next week. Welcome home Deb!!
