Hi everyone,

Tomorrow we move to Alert level 2. Let’s hope it’s only a short stay before getting back to level 1, fingers crossed.

Access to the club will be back open, but I would like to remind you all of the rules and guidelines at the club under Level 2.

Contact Tracing is a vital tool in fighting this virus and is a requirement for us as a club, to keep accurate records of who has been on the premises and when. It is MANDATORY from tomorrow, that anyone using the club facilities scans in using the NZ COVID Tracer app, there are QR code posters up at all entry points. If you do not have the NZ COVID Tracer app you must fill out our MBSC Contact Tracing Form at https://www.murraysbay.org/club/covid/ to register everyone in your group. You are required to do this when you arrive at the club AND when you depart. 

We ask that all the “old, new normal” health requirements are followed at all times.

  • Wash your hands
  • Keep physical distancing, at least 1 metre apart, ideally 2
  • Wash your hands
  • If you feel at all unwell, STAY AT HOME
  • Wash your hands

One difference from last time round at Level 2, is that the lower level of the clubrooms (training area) will be open. This can be used for gatherings of no more than 10 people and we do ask that everyone keeps their distance and recommend that masks are worn in the enclosed spaces. There is NO access to the Commodore’s lounge level and tower unless on specific club duty.

The health and wellness of our members is a priority. We will be following the government guidelines and will keep you updated as the regulations evolve.


We are in full swing planning the Icebreaker on Sep 19th and the STACK Winter Champs Oct 2-4. Please, for the Winter Champs we need all club members to volunteer their time to help run these 3 days. It is an important revenue earner for the club that goes back directly into the running the club over the season. If your kids are sailing you are expected to volunteer and we always need more help than that, so all are welcome. Please email Steve on rostersmbsc@gmail.com and get in while you still have a choice of which roles to fill.



Commodore, MBSC
