No More SEA WATER In Our BED!! (MJ Sailing – Ep 150)
Since we can’t sail anywhere, it’s a perfect time to finish some of those NEED TO DO project on our boat. Including keeping water from getting into our bed.
Welcome to lockdown in the UK. On March 23, 2020, we were effectively restricted from leaving our primary residence. For us, that happened to be Sutton Harbour Marina, in Plymouth England. Through the month of April we were content to hang out on the boat, getting some projects done around the ‘house’ and editing videos to catch up to real time.
As part of our restrictions we were allowed one hour of exercise outside per day, and the two of us would occasionally take walks along the harbour of Plymouth Sound and the Plymouth Hoe. Effective May 13th, we moved to phase two of restrictions, which includes as much outdoor activity as you like, as long as you adhere to the social distancing guidelines. Good news for us, this meant sailing was now allowed as a form of outdoor sports!
Getting ready to begin our cruising season, we started to prep the boat for departure, only to find out just a few days before tossing off the lines that we are not yet allowed to anchor out on our boat. Day sailing is permitted, but many harbours are not allowing visiting yachts.
What does this mean for us? We’re still trying to figure out all the rules and regulations, but stay tuned for future episodes when we hope to have more answers
Much love from England!
