Auckland moves to Alert Level 3 at 11:59pm, Tuesday 21 September.
This means our clubhouse will remain closed, but members with boats in the hardstand can now be allowed back to work on them under strict conditions. Unfortunately haul out and relaunch operations cannot happen until we drop to Level 2.

Any member who does not abide by these rules will asked to leave the yard.
For all others members rules of Level 3 as per government direction include:
- No water-based activities involving sailing boats, motorised boats or other craft like jet skis, and scuba diving.
- Fishing is allowable from a wharf or the shore, but not off the rocks or from a boat. Boating is not allowed. Keep it local - go to your nearest fishing spot, not your favourite fishing spot! Our wharf is private and will remain closed in Level 3.
- Stay within 200 metres from shore if you are kayaking, canoeing, rowing, surfing, wind surfing or paddle boarding.
- If you go swimming keep it local and in safe spots and do not swim far from the shore.
- Do not go out to exercise if you have cold or flu symptoms or you have been asked to isolate.
- Even if you have been vaccinated, you still need to follow the rules to keep everyone safe.
- At Alert Level 3, you can exercise in your local area on your own, or with people in your household bubble.
- If you are exercising outside, try to keep a 2 metre distance from people who are not in your bubble.
The most important thing is to stay safe and stay close to home. Go to your local park or beach, not your favourite one.
