Two years ago, my son came back from a cruising weekend with a crew of 8 on the north sea.
When they returned every single menber of the boat was proven Corona and went ill and quarantined.

No problems these guys are young and after his sickness and quarantine he swam 2 km non stop.
No sweat.

There is a lesson to be learned, if one crewmember brings corona onboard during cruising or racing he'll certainly infect the whole crew with corona.

So you arrive in Hobart, get tested, someone is positive and the whole crew get 14 days hotel quarantine at their cost !!
That's a risk each boat will need to consider, also loss of income for the crew? With the case numbers going up in Sydney, the probability of this situation may be increasing by the day. The two handed boats are in a far better position!
