I am writing to let you know what new COVID requirements the Club is obligated to implement from the 31st of January 2022 and what the Club will require you to do from that date.
Before I explain the COVID requirements I want to make it clear to all members that they must comply with them regardless of their views regarding vaccinations or Government mandates.
It is very possible that we could lose our licence to sell alcohol if members flout or try to by-pass these requirements. None of us want that to happen! I therefore strongly urge everyone to comply without complaint.
The new COVID requirements that the Club must comply with on the 31st of January 2022 can be downloaded here.

The new Sliding Gate has been installed for security and members conveniance.
For Entry and Exit you will need a Gate Remote Fob.
These are available from the office from 4 to 5pm most days, if a committee member is present, or Sunday from 12 to 4pm. A remote is issued free per membership with additional remotes at $40 (cost).
If members require an additional Fob for their wife or partner they can purchase one from the office.
Remote Fobs are for the exclusive use of the Member it is registered to. It it against club rules to use or lend a Remote Fob to others without prior arrangement from the committee. Members risk having their Fob disabled.
Remember that only MBFC members can use the Boat Ramp and visitors cars will need to use the car park outside the gate.
MBFC are VERY SERIOUS when it comes to boat safety. We recommend that all our members register with Rockingham Sea Rescue and log on with them each time they venture out on the water.
This is a long, but important message from "Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue Group"
PLEASE READ, AND THINK ABOUT YOUR OWN SAFETY ON THE WATER.
With the recent sea tragedies, we are appealing to all boaties to seriously rethink their actions before and while they are on the water. YOU'RE the Skipper, YOU'RE RESPONSIBLE for your vessel and all persons onboard!
All Marine Rescue Volunteer groups are here to help, we dont do it for glory, we come from all walks of life but we all have one common goal...to keep you safe. But we need your help!! When an accident at sea happens, we drop everything in our lives to respond. We search for hours, often day after day, hoping for the best possible outcome, but sometimes it's only to give closure to the loved ones you have left behind.
HAVE all required safety gear, AND know how to use it! WEAR your life jackets/Pfds, they're certainly not there to be a cushion or fashion accessory! LOG-ON with your local Marine Rescue Group, and check that where you go AND the weather are suitable for both your vessel and your own capabilities.
If you are unsure or new to boating, please contact your local Marine Rescue Group for advice.
Our doors are open, use Facebook, use phones..we always try to be available for any questions or queries.
Or bring your boat and your family down so we can answer any questions you AND your family may want to ask.
There is nothing embarrassing about wanting to keep your loved ones safe!…Visit the Rockingham Sea Rescue website here
