COVID-19,   January 2021

In considering the spirit of the simple Stay at Home headline of current government lockdown restrictions, The Harbour Board deems that working on one’s vessel at the Harbour does not constitute ‘taking exercise’ and so is unlawful.

Individual canoeing,  as a form of exercise, is permitted.
