Firstly, it depends what happens on Monday.
The media were broadcasting supposition for hours before the Prime Minister made his speech this evening as if it was being implemented immediately.
Such an event as proposed now has to go before Parliament for approval on Monday although I suspect in this case it shall be unopposed.
Secondly, it depends how you interpret "exercise and recreation". I suspect if you have to travel a hundred miles from a high infection area to the broads, which the BA have already requested that you do not do, that will be looked upon rather dimly. If you are local, do not engage with anyone other than from your household, and go for a cruise up the river and back without mooring up anywhere do you consider that recreation?
As usual the language used is vague at best and open to interpretation. Science has predicted this for weeks so why scrawl some notes on the back of an envelope on a Saturday afternoon and drop a bombshell that does not clarify anything beyond closing pubs, restaurants and gyms again?

Simple answer - no you cant unfortunately.
No-one should be leaving their home except for very limited circumstances and boating is not a form of exercise in my opinion. Even though sailing mine is hard work! boat-sail

There is no “simple answer”. The restrictions must be read in their entirety, and applied to one’s own specific circumstance.

For example, visiting a public place is allowed, as is unlimited exercise. Nothing is said about what form of transport can or can’t be used to get to the public place. So, it could be argued that using my boat (moored a few minutes from my house) to reach a riverside walk is OK. However, overnight stays in second homes (which included boats the last time round) won’t be generally allowed.

Perhaps the simplest answer is it all depends...

Why do people have to continually try to find ways to get round the restrictions on their liberty which have been put in place for their benefit? We as a country are deep in the brown stuff and need to get out of it as soon as possible. The bottom line is that the Government is seeking to reduce the spread of the virus by containment, please do your part to help them and us by thinking of others and not just yourself.

Trying to understand vaguely-drawn legislation is not the same as trying to find a way around it. Every individual is affected in a different way, by different parts of it. And it’s for that very reason that I say the answer to the OP’s question is ‘It depends...’

This is not the time for intricately drawn up legislation which nobody will read, it is the time for a simple message to which people should apply common sense to comply with as far as they possibly can.

I agree with Paladine.

The key messages are :
don't overnight,
don't mix households,
socially distance
and don't travel too far for your exercise.

Without trying to be too contentious it is precisely because people followed the government's earlier bad advice of eat, drink and be merry at Bargain prices that we are in this particular mess.(imo).
