Guide to Boating During the Covid-19 Crisis

Boating safety is always—always—a critical consideration whenever you push off the dock, but with all the recent issues regarding COVID-19, many people are wondering if boating is considered a safe social distancing practice. For safety please see on below for Guide to Boating During the Covid-19 Crisis.

MAINTAIN THE All IMPORTANT SOCIAL DISTANCE

Stay at least two metres from others. (No joining up boats together, no dock parties.)

Boat Maintenance - Life JacketsKEEP YOUR BOAT IN GREAT CONDITION

Before leaving the dock it’s even more important than in normal times to ensure your boat is in good order. If you need emergency services save it for an emergency that could not be avoided.

Before you leave the dock ensure you have everything you need for your journey to reduce the number of times you need to stop for supplies. As with all shopping for supplies it is best to pay online or over the phone.

TRAVEL TO & FROM STONES BOATYARDRESPECT LOCAL PEOPLE

Double check the local  covid safety rules before you moor up or go ashore. Of course, ideally you simply stay on your boat.  It’s all about the continual challenge of financially supporting the local community whilst keeping everyone covid safe.

DON’T CROSS THE BORDER!
