Read the guidelines again from your link. It all changes after December 15th for domestic travellers. Sure will need to be fully vaxed and proof of negative covid test but otherwise the Tas border is open so the S2H can go ahead. 

Of course the new variant could change this quickly but I personally haven't seen anything yet from official Tas govt sources. 
anyone see the problem with this rule for some competitors?  :p

Travellers who have spent time in a high-risk area in the 14 days before their travel to Tasmania will have to have a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours before arrival in Tasmania.

If NSW is classified as "high risk" then it will apply to the fleet.

At least they have a testing exemption for locals who do a short trip, which Anna cannot get her head around. 


When 90 per cent of eligible people 12 years and older are fully vaccinated



All Tasmanians 12 years and older have had the opportunity to be vaccinated



Open 15 December 2021



Domestic travel



Vaccinated travellers


From 15 December 2021, travellers aged 12 years and two months and older, including returning residents, will need to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 (unless exempt) to enter Tasmania without the need to quarantine.

Children under the age of 12 years and 2 months will be treated as a vaccinated person for the purposes of travel to Tasmania, and thus will be subject to the same conditions.

Travellers who have spent time in a high-risk area in the 14 days before their travel to Tasmania will have to have a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours before arrival in Tasmania. This applies to all travellers aged 5 and above. The testing requirement will not apply to travellers who have been out of Tasmania for fewer than seven days.

Children under 18 years of age may be required to submit an individual travel registration.

Proof of vaccination and a negative COVID-19 test (for travellers from high-risk areas) may be required to be provided on arrival in Tasmania.

Travellers who cannot provide evidence of the required vaccination or testing (for travellers from high-risk areas) on arrival will be directed to isolate until they can provide the evidence or return a negative COVID-19 result.

Tasmanian residents will be able to isolate in suitable premises if they meet all the eligibility criteria. Non-Tasmanian residents will be required to isolate in a government-managed facility until they can provide the evidence, or are approved to remain in isolation, or return to their point of departure if not approved to enter Tasmania.

 
Ahh, ok makes sense thanks for the extra info. 

this bit is still tricky,   Travellers who have spent time in a high-risk area in the 14 days before their travel to Tasmania will have to have a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours before arrival in Tasmania.  But im sure there will be a work around in the works to get testing completed and results before any boats depart.

Even though I will probably get called a pedant, I noticed quite a few of the yachts in the Cabbage Tree Island race have nav lights that don't satisfy the Special Regs - namely that:



[SIZE=13pt]3.23.3  [/SIZE][SIZE=13pt]Navigation lights shall not be mounted below deck level and should be at no less height than immediately under the upper lifeline. [/SIZE]

Law Connect's lights were just on the height of the lower lifeline, as were many others. Given the CYCA are the denizens of quality in Offshore Yacht racing, perhaps their Sailing Office needs to have a look.

[SIZE=11pt]1.03.2 The words "shall" and "must" are mandatory, and "should" and "may" are permissive. ---https://www.sailing.org/tools/documents/mo12021-[26835].pdf[/SIZE]

 The "should be at no less height than immediately under the upper lifeline" is a recommendation. The "not be mounted below deck level" is the only specified part of that rule.

To be fair, if you’re running furling sails that are cut that low having nav lights any higher than “just on” makes them somewhat superfluous? Is it a case of “better something than nothing?”

I’ve got a GREAT idea - let’s ask Glen Stanaway from AS to jump on the forum and give us his interpretation of the rules?

In 3… 2… 1…

Good point - doesn't change the rule, and seeing a light from the leeward side would be hard, but not from the windward side. Of course they could just use their tri colour (allowed for yachts that big?) and then no worries.
