OK we seem to have survived COVID lockdown and restrictions are now easing, so we go into the next phase of our "new normal", social distancing is still required and gatherings of up to 20 people are now allowed.

During breaks from my boat building at docklands I have observed more activity on the water with kayakers and boaters appearing more frequently. We are still not able to safely utilise the APYC facilities but we will keep you informed of developments as restrictions change.

Our Annual General Meeting which is usually held in late July is currently under review and again, we will advise whether we will postpone or make other arrangements (perhaps a "Zoom" meeting), depending upon restrictions at the time.  This is also being monitored and will be advised to you.

Your committee held a Zoom meeting last week which was a success and it was suggested that we have an on water get together later this month so, .....

Expressions of Interest required in attending a boating trip on the Yarra or Maribyrnong River on Sunday 28 June
Restrictions will apply ... only family members in each boat.

Please let me know if you are interested on 0438519033 .  A decision on " go / no go" will be made by Wednesday 24 June and communicated to those who have responded to the EOI.

Keep on doing what you are doing , stay safe and well and we will be on the water soon.

Cheers all,
