Following the guidance document issued by the Government yesterday we are hoping to provide clarity to our customers and recreational boat users in the Cattewater at the earliest opportunity.

One of the industries Governing Bodies made a statement on Sunday welcoming ‘a return to Boating from Wednesday’. Unfortunately recreational sailing was not specifically mentioned in the guidance yesterday, so at this time the previous guidance regarding vessel use still remains. Until we receive specific guidance regarding recreational water activities we urge water users to continue to follow the previous instructions.

We have been informed the Department for Culture, Media and Sport are expected to issue guidance later this week which will specifically include recreational sailing and the status of Marinas.

A joint statement from the BPA, UKHMA, British Marine and the RYA is expected today, which we will share.

We ask for patience, and understanding, and when the time comes, and Marinas are allowed to open we hope everybody will respect any decisions the facility makes to ensure the safety of its staff and users during the reopening.
