Acting Victorian Premier James Merlino announced today an extension of the current lockdown until 11.59pm on Thursday 10 June 2021 for Melbourne.

RBYC will continue to be open daily for take away Coffee & Tea only. The clubhouse, gym, sauna, steam room will all be closed. The take away service will operate from 7:00 – 10am on weekdays and 7:30 – 11:30 on the weekend. We encourage you to drop in for a take away coffee whilst you are exercising.

Unfortunately this has resulted in the cancellation of the following events:
04.06.21 – First Friday of the Month 
05.06.21 – Costello Pursuit
09.06.21 – Hearnes’ Heroes Pursuit

The Keelboat Forum (09.06.21) and OTB Forum (10.06.21) will be postponed to a date to be advised.

The restrictions also include closing outdoor physical recreation & sport facilities. 

We will continue to have a staff member walk the marina on a daily basis and report any issues directly to boat owners. If you would like anything specifically checked on your boat please contact 0437 454 998 and we will endeavour to assist.
