ACBOC –COVID 19
Progressing with caution
Following the Government announcement on Sunday 10 May the rules about the response to the COVID 19 pandemic have changed. People are now permitted to travel to other destinations in order to exercise, but that any activity will still need to be carried out alone or with members of a single household and social distancing must be followed at all times.
The ACBOC Management Committee interprets this to mean that those people that need to carry out essential maintenance on their boats at the Alresford Creek Boatsheds, will be able to do so as long as they are working with strict adherence to the guidelines laid out.
This means working alone or with someone from your own household, keeping 2 metres apart from anyone else and being aware of others personal space when moving around in the sheds.
The guidance also means that members may use their own boats as individuals or in household groups taking extra precautions to reduce the likelihood of calling on emergency services.
The kitchen area should only be used for hand washing. Bring your own flask and mug if you want hot drinks.
Safe cruiser launching is not possible under the revised guidelines.
A link to Brightlingsea harbour authority will keep you up to date with their current policy.
