Jeromy Young Dreamtime Superyacht
In July 2021, Jeromy Young was fined for breaching Queensland COVID-19 restrictions by sailing to the Gold Coast from the virus hotspot Sydney. Young arrived at Southport last week with three other people on board his 34m superyacht the Dreamtime. He then attended the rugby union test between Australia and France with about 17,000 fans in Brisbane on Wednesday night, 7 Jul 2021.
Young and his party tested negative for COVID-19 after they were discovered by authorities when Queensland Health noticed “something was amiss” on their border declaration pass, Maritime Safety Queensland general manager Angus Mitchell said.
“We’ve boarded the vessel and spoken to those on board, and realized there were inconsistencies from what they’ve declared and what we knew to be the facts in NSW,” Mitchell told 7NEWS. “That’s led them to be marched off to quarantine and to all four of them facing an over $4000 fine.”
