Allow Dinghy Sailing in NZ under Alert Level 3

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!


Under the proposed alert level 3 guidelines in NZ any form of yachting is prohibited, while surfing, swimming and mountain biking are allowed. 

We respectfully petition Sport NZ, the Ministry of Health and Yachting NZ, with the broad support of the sailing community in NZ, to allow dinghy sailing in NZ under alert level 3 with the following provisions: 1, Social distancing and personal hygiene requirements to be stringently maintained at all times (single handed boats only); 2. No use of any shared resources or equipment.  3. Sailors to remain with 1 Nautical Mile of shore; 4. No motorised equipment or boats be used.

As alert level 3 allows for a greater range of recreation for NZers we are asking anyone who enjoys a surf, a bike ride, a swim or any outdoor activity to sign this petition and allow a limited amount of non motorised dinghy sailing.
