Following recent UK Government Covid19 announcements, our trustees are pleased to announce the resumption of our activities from the beginning of February 2022.

We are planning restart training for our volunteer skippers and crew in February and we plan to restart trips for our customers in March.

We take the safety and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers and customers as our highest priority and we will ensure that we comply with all guidance and advice regarding safe working conditions.

We are planning on restarting our trips in line with Government guidelines on household mixing and social distancing. We anticipate this will be from the 21st June at the earliest and we are now taking bookings for after this date.
