Oh and where are the biggest capacity boats to be found on The Broads ? - oh yes that would be day boats and the growing number of large and high capacity hire cruisers for 8/10 or more.  How often do you actually see private boats with larger groups on? Mostly they fall within the 2,4 or 6's.

But of course here we are again with the BA not wanting to say anything that could even remotely affect the big boys , so it's watered down as usual. I really do think this quango needs to be disbanded.

I would like to say a big thank you to Paladine for laying things out as clearly as it possibly can be.

Now, if we could just get Johnson / Cummings to run things past Paladine before making an announcement, everything would be much easier to understand!

Hi Forresters, you posted in between my 2 messages about the BA, so I've only just seen your comments.

I can't agree. As with all the rules changes as they come about, different groups will be affected, but we all knew that if cases rose again further restrictions could be implemented. So, just like those who went abroad and then complained about having to rush home, or return and isolate for 14 days, everyone must realise they are taking a risk and must take responsibility for that. People have lost money in many ways, including on outlay made long before we even knew about coronavirus. People of course have also lost their lives, or loved ones, and it's those families that I reserve my sadness and concern for.

Yes Karen I understand.

It is however harsh on those who "played safe" and staycated as they were encouraged to do.  I also stand by my assertion this has come about by general relaxation particularly the younger age group.  

I can't imagine there will be huge numbers affected but I do think it is OTT.

As to your point about privateers and the BA - I thought exactly the same  I have seen very few with more than 6.

Realistically though I guess the hire yards are able to cancel oversubscribed boats and re-let them fairly quickly.  Or rather they would have been able to in the recent past.

In general though I see this as a relaxation in hospitality as we no longer have to check the make up of the groups we take in.  I fear that pubs who have not enforced the rules will carry on the same so I'm hoping the authorities will get stuck into them.  Did you notice they have announced the appointment of Covid Marshals in towns and cities to help enforcement deal with issues.  There is also a call for Enforcement Officers recently retired to return to help

The pace of life down there
suits us

Forresters, that's a very valid point about those who picked a staycation over heading abroad.

And yes I agree that the youngsters who've been out and about - partying , drinking in groups, having house parties , mini festivals and illegal raves etc have done a lot of harm in spreading the disease, and their selfishness is now impacting wider groups who may well have been sticking to the rules and rightly feel aggrieved.

I think, in my defence  Blush  I've simply become frustrated at the many things we've seen ( like you at some Broadland pubs we've passed) or read ( like the students who feel their lives have been ruined and the reports they are the group who will suffer most with mental health issues as a result of Covid...) And having lost a relative to Covid, and with livelihoods being shredded, amongst other things, I have limited capacity for certain other complaints which seem less important in the bigger picture.

I did notice the bringing in of new "Marshall,  roles and wondered perhaps if it was a job opportunity for me....   Wink  

Let's hope those figures start decreasing soon as a result of the new measures , or it's going to be a very hard winter in many ways.

All the best, keep safe , Karen

A wise police chief from the south coast said a couple of months ago  that it was not possible to enforce social distancing on people who have consumed alcohol . To paraphrase they  either want to love and cuddle you , dance with you or have a fight with you.

I have no doubt at all that Covid Marshalls will also find it impossible.

In my opinion if we really want to get the numbers going in the right direction hospitality will have to lock down again.

Not popular I know but are there any better options.
