It's the news we have been waiting for...
Following yesterday's announcement from the Prime Minister detailing further easing of restrictions, we're delighted to inform you that staying onboard overnight will be permitted from Saturday 4th July.
We share your excitement at the prospect of spending nights afloat whether it be safely tied up in the Yacht Haven or at your favourite anchorage in the Solent.
We will also once again be welcoming visiting boats to the marina so don't forget to tell us if you are going away, even if just for one night, so we can earn you some money by sub-letting your berth to visitors.
Also applicable from the 4th July, you’ll be able to meet and go boating with multiple households up to a maximum of six people, or two households regardless of size. However, social distancing must remain in place at all times with a recommended guidance of a minimum of 1m.
Safe Boating *UPDATED*
With the prospect of more berth holders visiting the Yacht Haven in the coming weeks, please ensure you follow our simple suggestions to improve your safety, the safety of others and allow everyone to enjoy boating responsibly.
We all need to take responsibility to help stop the spread of Covid-19. If you have Covid-19 symptoms, please stay at home and do not visit the Yacht Haven. If you do come to the Yacht Haven, please use our hand sanitizer stations on-site, uphold distancing and maintain high levels of hygiene at all times.
