Nice and simple then . Good job they didn't try and deal with the concept of a sliding roof on an open centre cockpit .

I think I'll wait to see what changes are made to the legislation. After all, that's what any prosecutions are taken under, not the guidance.

Just home and read this . Have been waiting and checking every couple of days to see how the BA would interpret the changes and tell us all to get lost in their usual fashion !

I am sure that Boris specifically said that the legal requirement to stay at  home ends on 29 March, and that I looked up the details a couple of days later on the .gov website and the info/guidance for that date said that travel should be minimised where possible. Or words to that effect. When I've had my tea I shall have to go a looking...

From the .gov.uk website:

Travel

The ‘stay at home’ rule will end on 29 March but many restrictions will remain in place. People should continue to work from home where they can and minimise the number of journeys they make where possible, avoiding travel at the busiest times and routes. Travel abroad will continue to be prohibited, other than for a small number of permitted reasons. Holidays abroad will not be allowed, given it will remain important to manage the risk of imported variants and protect the vaccination programme. The government has launched a new taskforce to review global travel which will report on 12 April.

Getting totally fed up with this now.

It seems the second home restriction on staying over is removed from 12th April.  We have purchased a static caravan situated around 10 miles from our permanent residence, the pub.  Our boat, in Brundall, is 250 miles away.

The park has confirmed we may stay over at the static from 12th April and as we read it we may stay over on our boat from the same date.  However the travel restrictions remain in place until 21st June?

Have I read the travel restrictions wrongly?  If my reading is correct then holiday hire boats cannot be taken until travel restrictions are removed unless you live local.

The pace of life down there
suits us

Pretty certain 12 April is your key date. Stay at home as a requirement ends on 29 March but people are still being asked but not required to restrict travel until June

'This is what I read from .gov , its from the full Covid 19 Response - Spring 2021 , the Full Executive Summary

"From 29 March there is an opportunity for some further limited changes....

.... As a result of these changes, people will no longer be legally required to Stay at Home. Many of the lockdown restrictions, however, will remain in place. Unless an exemption already applies, it will not be possible to meet people from other households indoors and many business premises will remain shut. Guidance will set out that people should continue to work from home where they can. People should continue to minimise travel wherever possible, and should not be staying away from home overnight at this stage"

That therefore says to me that whilst the guidelines ask us to restrict travel where possible , we are no longer required by law from 29 March to be bound by the old rule that the BA have quoted as still being in place - i.e. The one about staying in your village, town, part of city etc.  It's clear we can't stay overnight at that point.

So if you need after 3 or 4 months the travel to check your boat which is outside your town or village , you can it seems, but you must  not stay overnight at that time. I wasn't looking at this point to be using the boat for recreation so i didn't look at the permitted activities.

I'll now look for my notes, cos I did make some (!) on other aspects.

And if - by trying to find ways around the rules - and not following the guidance - we make a mess of this, then the unlocking date of 21st June will be put back due to a rise in infection rate.
Be patient and its over quicker. boat-sail

Not looking to find ways to get around the rules I can assure you.
  
Simply trying to work them out whilst not giving any weight to the  BA interpretations as they have got "form" in this regard throughout Covid  - unfortunately getting it wrong on more than one occasion.

We have followed the covid rules here in this house since last March and have been very isolated in our small village. At times those rules have been exceptionally hard especially when as a family we went through the heartbreak of a sudden death and the very painful  difficulties of a funeral with only a handful being permitted to attend.
