Timeline for Harbour return to
 'Summer Mode' on 14th June 2020

Many thanks to all members who are co-operating in these unusual times.

1. The daily socially-distanced bringing & launching of light craft is permitted as long as said craft are taken home again overnight until 14th June after which normal summer licensing conditions apply.

2. Licence Labels will only be available from
2 June, so unlabelled permitted boat use before then is OK.

3. DIY-launchers of summer-moored dayboats and any dinghies now on hard standing must vacate the Hard Standing by end of 7th June.

4. Only tenders to already moored vessels allowed to be brought to the  Harbour before 14th June, stored only on Ted's Folly or in racks.  
All other vessels to await 14th June.

5. Kayaks/canoes/paddleboards may only be stored on racks. If racks become full, take your craft home again & inform LF&HA Membership Secretary  

6. There will be a Hard Standing tidying-up work-party from 1400 on Saturday 13th June. Anyone willing to help would be most welcome, in a social distancing manner of course.

7. LF&HA has gratefully received notices of 8 dinghies that will not be brought to Hard Standing this summer, so things might work out fine for dinghy sailors; fingers crossed.

8. As more members are about, it is easy to forget

social distancing, so please keep alert, especially to covid-vulnerable individuals or family groups that may be blocked by your position on a constricted route.
