SPASC’s Safety Management Plan objectives are to:

  • Ensure the health and safety of SPASC members, participants in sailing regattas, junior sail training programs, support boat drivers and crew, volunteers and the general public who may be at SPASC’s clubhouse and/or on Lake Macquarie participating in SPASC sailing regattas and races, as far as reasonably practicable,

  • Comply with any Acts, Regulations, local laws and by-laws, Codes of Practice, Australian Standards and RMS NSW policy and procedures that are in any way applicable,

  • Ensure SPASC’s Safety Management Plan is developed and implemented in accordance with any other Acts, regulations, local laws and by-laws, Codes of Practice, Australian Standards, NSW COVID-19 Regulations and RMS’s policy, practice and procedures,

  • Maintain trust, good faith and cooperation between SPASC and Maritime NSW.

SPASC’s objectives will be met through good leadership, commitment and continual training.


​Speers Point Amateur Sailing Club led the region's clubs in achieving COVID-safe accreditation to allow its members access to sail racing activities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Member safety and continued accreditation requires that all members, participants and visitors adhere to the NSW Government COVID regulations, including vaccination, mask-wearing and social distancing requirements. For more information, please refer to the Australian Sailing NSW COVID information page.

SPASC uses the Services NSW QR Code sign-in process. That QR code is on a poster (see below) at the clubhouse entrance. All SPASC members, participants and visitors must sign in, using their own device, before entering the clubhouse and are asked to add the Services NSW app to their smartphones before attending the club to avoid delays.

SPASC will roster a COVID Safety Marshal on race days tasked with supervising all aspects of COVID compliance, including the sign-in process. Please refer to the COVID Safety Marshal Duties document for guidance on duties and the SPASC COVID Safety Plan (Community Sport) and SPASC COVID Safety Plan (Hospitality) for compliance information.

The SPASC committee thanks you for your assistance in keeping our club COVID-safe.
