Safety Guidelines 

We appreciate how important it is for you to have a safe and enjoyable visit and are taking extra steps to keep you and our team safe. Please help us by following these guidelines:

  • If you or anyone in your household is showing symptoms such as a cough, fatigue, fever, loss of taste/smell, you must not visit the river or Yacht Harbour.
  • We ask that face coverings are worn in indoor spaces, in accordance with Government regulations.
  • Please do not congregate on the walkways and pontoons to talk as this blocks the pathway for other users.
  • Access to the site will continue to be monitored so please display your car permit.
  • As part of the Track & Trace system we ask you to sign in using the QR scan posters located at the chandlery and Harbour office, or sign in using the log sheet which is located outside of the Harbour office.
  • Please maintain your distance from others in the car park, the boatyard and walkways giving the required 2m social distance courtesy to both other boat owners and staff.
  • Do not cross on the walkways. Please give priority to fellow boat owners entering the marina before exiting.
  • Please wash or sanitise your hands regularly whilst on site. Additional handwashing facilities are available outside of the washroom facilities. 
  • Please remember to touch as little as possible until you reach your own vessel. This includes handrails, door handles, taps and any other areas of shared contact.
  • Trollies are still available for use and will be regularly cleaned, but we recommend you wear gloves or clean the trolley yourself before and after use to protect you and others.
  • Water is available in the marina but we recommend using your own hosepipe and cleaning the tap after use.
  • Please be aware that we are part way through our marina redevelopment and have contractors working on site. Please do not walk up or use Piers A to C.
