RYA: Returning to Boating
The RYA are working on a range of guidance and resources to help members and the wider boating community prepare for a safe return to the water.
The RYA Guidance: COVID-19 preventative measures are vital in keeping you, your family and others safe and to minimise pressure on frontline service. The RYA will continue to support the National effort to control the spread of Covid-19 and assist members of the RYA family with any variations that might develop at a local level. We support the Government’s desire to return to normality in a measured way and we recognise that we have a role to play by providing guidance to the RYA community on the application of the 2020 Regulations.
Be considerate and conservative.
Considerate: be mindful of the potential impact that you could have on other water users and do not place unnecessary extra strain on the RNLI and emergency services.
Conservative: help to minimise incident and accidents by taking an extra cautious approach to your boating.
The RYA guidance on safe boating remains unchanged: know your limits; look after yourself; keep in touch and, above all, have a plan.
