Update 10th November
New guidance for Wales as Firebreak ends
We extend our thanks to all of you for following the Welsh Government’s Firebreak lockdown restrictions over the past few weeks.
Our Haven Team spent the lockdown conducting additional checks on the pontoons, fixing lines, pumping bilges, furling sails which had come loose, emailing photos to customers for additional peace of mind, and keeping a close eye on everything. Even under the current lesser restrictions, our team are here to help in any way we can, so please do not hesitate to call.
As of yesterday, 9th November, the Firebreak lockdown has finished and Wales has moved to a single set of rules for the entire country.
Travel and staying overnight
Welsh residents are now permitted to travel freely within Wales to stay in hotels, B&Bs, holiday homes and onboard boats. That being said, the Welsh Government are advising residents to ensure non-essential travel is kept to a minimum.
At this stage, berth holders who live in England are not permitted to travel to Wales unless it is essential. English residents must continue to follow the lockdown rules set by the government until early-December.
Sports and leisure facilities can reopen, meaning that boating is once again permitted.
Groups of up to 4 people are permitted to meet up outdoors, providing social distancing remains in place.
Please ensure you read all the rules relative to outdoor activity before taking to the water to ensure you are operating safely and within the current guidance.
Eateries are permitted to reopen and both Manillas and The Bar Restaurant have opened their doors once again.
Groups of 4 people can meet indoors at pubs, cafes and restaurants, but the 10pm curfew on alcohol sales remains in place.
Visiting the Yacht Haven
We continue to operate some unique rules to ensure the Yacht Haven goes beyond the advised set of guidelines to ensure a safe environment for our staff and our berth holders.
- Please use your access fob around the site to assist us with the Track & Trace logging, or otherwise contact the Marina Office so we can log your visit.
- Face masks/coverings must be worn when using any indoor facility at the Yacht Haven.
- Please continue to comply with social distancing at all times.
- Wash your hands thoroughly and use our hand sanitizer stations on-site.
- Do not visit the Yacht Haven if you have a new cough, feel unwell or have lost your sense of smell. Follow the government advice and seek a COVID-19 test.
As mentioned, our Haven Team are here on-site 7 days a week to help support you in any way we can. We will be maintaining security and taking care of your boats, as well as being on the pontoons. If you’re unable to visit your boat in person and would like us to check something specifically, do not hesitate to call us.
The full guidance from the Welsh Government can be read here.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
