Campsites open on 4th July. Overnight stays allowed with friends and family, plus hotels and B&B etc.

I’m guessing this means that boating will be starting again for the leisure market?
Has anyone seen anything referring to this?

Nope I've not seen anything - seems a bit bizarre you can play sardines for a cheap pair of socks in Primark, but we can't sleep in the middle of nowhere

I'm fairly sure that the changes announced today will mean that leisure boating can commence and overnight stays will be permitted in England from 4th July.

Johnson on his feet at the moment announcing the great unlocking. Very significantly, he is implying that the various measures ref social distancing, meeting up etc will become "advice' rather than law.

Yes this is really good news - allowing people to use their own judgment rather than rules. Obviously if things get worse then it will need to change but nice we're at the stage where we can be grown ups again. Roll on 4th July!

Why?

 

You are living on your boat at that point.

True, but i think any further spikes will be localised - I'd be very surprised if we see a further national lockdown.

More than suprised, I would be gobsmacked. No economy, no life, it is that simple.

"Advice rather than law"😂 The difference being? Boris is behind the curve here, he's not allowing stuff, he's just rubber stamping what's already the reality.

It is a massive set of changes that he has announced.  I was not expecting you to be allowed to have another family stay in your house.  For us we just need Wales to make the same changes so we can go see our son.

 

Anyway I serviced the boat yesterday, so it is all ready to go on the 4th.

Ours is all loaded up ready for the off on the 4th July. I fully expect that the usual half hour run to the boat will be at least an hour and a half though as everyone else is trying to get to their holiday homes and caravans on the East Coast.

Just remember that it is not a requirement to be less than 2m from other people! You can still be sensible and do the right thing!

Under the new guidance from 4th July they will be able to move closer and be 1m away from you. Not a lot you can do about that.

I realy think you need to stay at home. Dare you ever cross a road or drive a car?  Have you ever done anything remotely dangerous? Do you not accept how very serious the state of the economy is to over 67 million people?

Which is exactly the point I was making to Mike Todd.   He said it wasn't mandatory but in effect if you want to be out and about it is mandatory.

Yet again you answer before you think.  You should try it sometime.  If this post isn't merged with my reply to NC read it and then think.

 

I think the rock climbing including one of the fairly early ascents of the Old man of Hoy were slightly dangerous.

 

Crossing the road, of course I do, but unlike you I judge how far away the vehicle is and if it is safe to step off the kerb before I do.

 

Couple that with you have assumed I was saying something I wan't.

Staying on your boat

Hi Boater!,

As you may have heard, the Government has today announced measures to continue the easing of lockdown. Importantly, this means that from Saturday 4 July all boaters in England will be able to stay overnight on their boats. 
 
While longer journeys are now possible, and our navigations are open in full, please bear in mind that booking for some passages and services will be required. Anything that is likely to affect your boating will be listed on our website.
 
In Wales, you can go out on your boat if you can do it locally. This generally means not travelling further than five miles to where your boat is moored. There should be no overnight stays on boats, no landing in any place beyond the immediate local area and a return to the point of departure. The restrictions on staying local could be lifted on Monday 6 July, if conditions allow, and we will update further when this is confirmed. 
 
Stay safe, happy boating,
Damian
Boating communications manager

Beat me to it!

CART has responded to the Government's latest advice with commendable alacrity, I'm sure their move will be popular with many boaters.

According tonews at lunchtime, 1m is the average social distance under normal conditions anyway!
