Further to the governments advice on 12th May, it may now be possible for buyers to start thinking about the viewing of boats again, subject to safe practices on social distancing and also the opening of the boatyards, marinas and sailing clubs in the coming weeks. We will all have to be patient and re-open to some extent when we can. Do please contact us for further information on any boat.
From Tollesbury Marina - In guidance issued this morning (13 May 2020), Government have confirmed that;
"All forms of water sports practised on open waterways, including sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, rowing, kayaking, surfing, paddle-boarding and the use of privately-owned motorised craft (in line with the guidance issued by the relevant navigation authority) are allowed."
This follows the publication, earlier this week, of Government's COVID-19 recovery strategy for England which provided key information regarding what the population can do away from their homes. This included:
Although Government restrictions on outdoor activities have been lifted, many of our member's facilities have not had the time to implement the measures set out by government to safely manage the gathering of people on their sites.
British Marine would therefore urge all boat owners to consider the following before they plan a day trip to their boat:
British Marine understands that inland navigation authorities and harbour authorities will also have to consider the Government's latest guidance in respect of what activities will be permitted across all parts of the UK and how they themselves will return to operation.
Due to government advice our offices at Tollesbury Marina have closed, the marina facility is also closed so please do not visit. However, do feel free to ask questions or request further information on any of our boats so that you are ready to view when restrictions are lifted!
