Return to Sailing Update 16th March

As announced today, restrictions for outdoor activity are set to ease from 1st April. This is very welcome news. Our understanding is that this should include boating activity, however, we await the issuing of the Regulations and guidance from the Department to understand implications in full. We have summarised the announcement below and will issue full guidance as soon as possible.

Although this announcement is welcome and further details are to follow, our current guidance remains in place, where club and watersports facilities must remain closed.

From April 1, the regulations will change to:

Permit 10 people from two households to undertake outdoor sporting activities as defined in the regulations. This allows sports such as golf and tennis to resume from this date in small groups of individuals from two households, however club houses and sport facilities including changing rooms, showers, kitchens, meeting rooms must remain closed apart from essential toilet facilities.

The Executive also agreed an indicative date of April 12 for:

Allowing for sports training to resume by sports clubs affiliated with recognised Governing Bodies, in small groups of up to 15 people but with all indoor spaces closed except for essential toilet facilities

LNSC will provide additional information on how it affects or proposed sailing activities as soon as details are clarified.
