Just seen the headline "UK measures to last several months".

That's sailing this summer knocked on the head then.

Fingers crossed that not too many are further affected.

Our club has stopped all formal sailing, but the club will still be open to members to free sail, check boats etc. The idea is you are cutting out duty teams and the like, but leaving opportunity to get out on the water in isolation.

My instructor season is in tatters, really, as Sailability has vulnerable members and volunteers and all the club courses are off till further notice. Living off savings for a while.

I am quarantined at the moment, but will get paid, self employed will struggle, you can get 'mortgage' and 'bill' breaks, Yougov have details and advice.
My only problem at the moment, can't get any bread  Angry

The RYA have a dedicated page for this at the moment: https://www.rya.org.uk/newsevents/news/Pages/rya-guidance-coronavirus.aspx

The government has confirmed that people with mild symptoms should stay at home and self-isolate for seven days. We know that all of this could affect planned events and activities. Unless there's official advice telling you not to do so, and as long as you follow the government advice on how to avoid catching or spreading the virus, you can continue with things like group activities and use of club facilities.

Our stupid puddle club where it is easy to sail anytime without cover and without using the clubhouse, has announced a complete shutdown of the club just because they "can't guarantee that the clubhouse is virus free" so we can't even casual sail! 
So instead of a 5 minute drive there we have to go an hour to another club or to the coast. 
I'm with Y&Y on this. Sailing is good for both mental and physical wellbeing.

Missed it, thanks for the heads up.

Just revisited the page and it's not what I read first time round.
