Important Steps after Arriving in Devonport
We need all crew onboard yachts in the Melbourne to Devonport race to take note of these special instructions from Bio-Security in Tasmania. We ask that one member on each boat, collate all the crew QR codes from your Tasmanian Entry Permit which will be completed prior to the start and have it ready to supply within an hour of finishing. It's important for us all to comply with these instructions provided by BioSecurity Tasmania.
