With the easing of lockdown restrictions, boat owners and other customers are now able to visit Emsworth Yacht Harbour, carry out maintenance on their boat and go sailing.
Please however note the following:
1. The new government guidance allows you to travel anywhere in England for exercise and sport. Please see https://www.gov.uk/government/news/coronavirus-guidance-on-access-to-green-spaces for full details.
2. You are not allowed to stay overnight anywhere other than your primary residence. Please do not stay overnight on your boat.
3. You may only meet with one other person at a time with anyone from outside your household and this meeting must be 1 on 1.
4. Chichester Harbour Conservancy have issued their own guidance on vessels using the harbour which can be found here: https://www.conservancy.co.uk/page/latest-news
We have put in place measures to help keep everyone safe and have circulated documents outlining these and put up information signage around the site. Any access to the marina is conditional on you adhering to our new site rules and the government guidance. The measures we have put in place will only work with your cooperation and we reserve the right to restrict access if we feel we are unable to manage the health and safety of those on site. Please be respectful and considerate to all site users, your actions have an impact on others.
The yard team are back at work from today and the launch programme is underway. James is busy contacting anyone who has indicated they are ready for a launch to get those booked in over the coming days. If you have not yet told us your launch plans it would be very helpful if you could do so.
The office team will also be back from tomorrow and our plan is to have the office open this week Thursday to Saturday. We will open the office on Sunday if we feel there is demand for it. Starting on Monday 18th May the office will be open 7 days a week.
If you have any questions or queries please contact the Harbour Office.
