The government announced that boating, water sports and marine leisure activities were able to restart in England from 8th March (subject to local navigation and harbour authority guidance).

The RYA have helpfully produced a roadmap document and have updated their FAQ document on marine leisure restart, that you may wish to review and circulate wider if appropriate.

The Department for Transport confirmed they won't be issuing their own guidance or note about marine leisure restart and are supportive of the RYA and British Marine taking the lead on this.
