Covid19 – June 2020 Update

In Wales the guidance allows only reacreational boating, a 5 mile travel radius,  with another group, then socially distanced in the outdoors. The better news is that notice has been given to ‘non-essential’ retail to resume around about 22nd June 2020 (including hair salons) – this maybe our opportunity for sail yacht operations and control measures are being put in place  – powerboat training likely to be July at the earliest with significant control measures (an optimistic view).

Covid19 Update

Lock-down continues in Wales, with some slight ease in England – DEFRA is stating that skipper charters are possible in Stage 3 (so early July at earliest) – If delay continues in Wales then it MAY be possible to resume some operations from Portishead Marina – Will be keeping this under continual review. Let’s get Boating Again!

Covid-19 Company Update

Frustration at the Spring fair winds and weather we have had lately has been testing – Plenty of refit thinking and activities going on behind the scenes – Looking forward to publishing these as soon as we get notice of any easing of lock-down – Thanks to all my customers for agreeing to postpone – Like you all cannot wait to get back on the water and messing around on boats.

Covid19 – Company Revew

Unfortunately no indication of when the Lock-Down will relax – Really disappointing missing these fair wind days for being out on the water – As soon as we can we will resume our operations – Meantime keep safe – Peter

Coronavirus19 – Company Policy

Following the Prime Minister Annoucement 23/03/20 we are suspending operations until Tuesday 14th April 2020 if allowed to do so. See full policy at the foot of the Home Page – Fair winds all – Peter
