On the subject of marinas closing, I have just sent the BA an email asking for clarity on the situation. No ambiguity, if's or but's, just requesting a simple yes or no answer.

I'm not holding my breath.

"The BA did not say that the Broads were 'closed' to motorboats though did they?

If they did, why hasn't every other marina locked their doors?"


I think you'll find that many of them have, those with gates to lock anyway.

Richardson's Stalham, Marine Tech Acle, St. Olave's, Cator's Ranworth, Waterside Potter Heigham. I'll let you look up the rest.

This was the Broads No-authority's advice, before today's amendment:

"Day trips on private or hire boats are not permitted as this is non-essential travel."

They can't actually close the Broads, as there is a public right of navigation, but that statement is as near as they could get to it.

TT, out of interest, has Broom's communicated with berth holders about this and have they restricted berth holder from visiting  their boats?

Posted a couple of hours ago on FB:

"The gate at Broadsedge Marina has been open since Friday-afternoon and will now remain open.Unfortunately the guidance we received from the Broads Authority has been very ambiguous conflicting and unhelpful please be assured that the well-being and safety of our clients and staff remain our number one priority. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.please continue to follow government guidelines

This sorry tale merely demonstrates the BAs folly of trying to interprate guidance before that guidance has been decided on.

Hopefully the BA have learned their lesson and will not try and jump the gun and exceed their authority  again.

I am afraid that unless my eyesight is failing me I still cannot see any statement, information or evidence other than screenshots from social media (which are hardly renowned for their validity) from the Broads Authority that:

a. Orders marinas to close or
b. Says that the Broads are "closed"?

For someone who enjoys speaking in such an authoritative and self-aggrandising way I am surprised that you aren't able to present any actual evidence to back this up Wink

It's a shame that marina operators aren't able to view the publicly accessible information on the Government website and decide for themselves, isn't it?

bitterncloud, your abrasive, confrontational style reminds me of someone. Been here before have you?

Yes, your eyesight must be failing, as you've missed the answers you seek.

I don't wish to play your game, so I won't bother responding to you again.  Smile
