On Saturday 31st October the Government announced that we will face another period of national lockdown commencing this Thursday, 4th November at 00:01 and is expected to end on Wednesday 2nd December.

We ask that you return to your primary residence for this period of time.

The Government is taking the following action in England:
Requiring people to stay at home, except for specific purposes.
Preventing gathering with people you do not live with, except for specific purposes.
Closing certain businesses and venues.

The Government guidance specifies that overnight stays and holidays away from primary residences will not be allowed. This includes holidays abroad and in the UK. It also means you cannot stay in a second home, if you own one, or staying with anyone you do not live with or are in a support bubble with.

There are specific exceptions, for example if you need to stay away from home (including in a second home) for work purposes, but this means people cannot travel overseas or within the UK, unless for work, education or other legally permitted reasons.

You must not travel if you are experiencing any coronavirus symptoms, are self-isolating as a result of coronavirus symptoms, are sharing a household or support bubble with somebody with symptoms, or have been told to self-isolate after being contacted by NHS Test and Trace.

Please do not self-isolate on your boat, this will put our staff and others at risk.
