Boating Activities during Covid-19

There has been plenty of confusion about what if any boating activities are allowed.  Please click link HERE to go to the latest Marine Safety Victoria response regarding boating activities in Victoria.  Hopefully this will make things clearer for all.

We have also received the following information from Hidden Harbour Services:
These are truly challenging times for all of us. If you’re unable to travel to your boat and want anything checked onboard such as mooring lines secure, batteries off, charger on etc the guys at Hidden Harbour Services can arrange this - Contact Nick on 0434 422 523

Anyone wishing to use this down time for annual maintenance works the Martha Cove Boatyard is still operating and are offering great packages.  Contact the Boatyard on 1800 440 255

Stay happy, stay safe & we’ll see you on the water again soon!

Members Survey

Thanks to those members of the club who completed and returned the survey forwarded prior to Christmas. 

The feedback has been positive, constructive and helpful. However, it appears that many within the club did not receive it.  The survey, modified in a couple of areas, is being forwarded to members again within the next week or so. If you would like a copy please contact Brian Marklew at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and he will arrange a copy to be sent to you.

Please help the future directional planning of the club by completing and returning the survey as soon as you’re able.
