Covid-19 Update 30th June

Covid-19 Update 30th June

The Scottish Government has announced the continued phased easing of lockdown restrictions and the latest information and indicative dates are as follows.

From Friday 3rd July, travel restrictions will be lifted, therefore enabling travel to Kip, Craobh & Fairlie Quay Marinas to access your boat from wherever you are.

Self-catering accommodation and second homes (without shared facilities) will also be able to open on Friday 3rd July which implies that staying on your boat will now be allowed providing it is fully self-contained.

Please remember, as with previous lifting of restrictions, these dates and restrictions will not be confirmed until the Scottish Government announcement on Thursday 2nd July and therefore may be subject to change.

Full details of the Scottish Government advice and plans for Phase 3 can be found HERE

Finally, we are as delighted as you to be moving back to boating but, the continued easing of lockdown restrictions depends on all of us taking a safe, and considerate attitude currently and continuing to follow Scottish Government guidelines.

Please remember, we are all in this together and we all share a responsibility.

In the meantime, enjoy the coming weekend, please stay safe and considerate, and we look forward to seeing you back at Kip, Craobh & Fairlie Quay.

Covid-19 Update – 19th June

Covid-19 Update on Phase 2

Thursday 18th June 2020

Craobh, Kip & Fairlie Quay Marinas

There has unfortunately been very little easing of the current restrictions that directly relate to boating and sailing in today’s announcement however, the First Minister said that there will be more reviews throughout the next 3-week period.

Those advised to shield will now be able to take part in non-contact leisure activities such as angling, kayaking, and meet members of another household outdoors, up to a suggested maximum of eight in the group. Strict physical distancing of two meters must always be followed, and they should wash their hands for at least 20 seconds when they return home

People should continue to stay in their local area as much as possible and should not travel more than around five miles for leisure or recreation.

Staying overnight on a boat is still not possible.

Smaller retail stores with street access, but not shopping centres, can open from 29 June

Face coverings will be mandatory on public transport from Monday, 22 June

It had been hoped that outdoor spaces for restaurants and bars, beer gardens etc., could open, but there are no plans for that to happen yet although this may be one of the areas under review. At Kip Marina, Cafe Riva is open for take away food & coffee between 10am & 3pm daily.

Full Scottish Government guidance on the gradual easing of Phase 2 can be found HERE

You can download details of the Safety Protocols we have implemented at our marina HERE

Our ‘Get Back On The Water’ leaflet is available, with guidelines to help make your return to boating safer and simpler is available HERE

We will also update you with the latest guidance from RYA Scotland and British Marine Scotland as soon as available but please remember, the continued easing of lockdown restrictions depends on all of us taking a safe, considerate attitude and continuing to follow Scottish Government guidelines.

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you at Craobh, Kip & Fairlie Quay.
