Dear Gweek Classic Boat Yard Community,

I wanted to update our customers as soon as possible on our thinking at Gweek Classic Boat Yard following the Prime Minster's Announcement yesterday and this morning’s announcement from the RYA. I have also been in touch with other marinas since early this morning. Further updates will follow. This is provisional and subject to change.

The plan is to open the yard for boat owners from 1400 today to do maintenance and security checks (not before). The yard will remain closed to any other visitors other than contractors. Please maintain social distancing. We will put in place signage and hand sanitisers once we can get them. Please ensure you:

  • Limit contact with other people especially the residents and staff
  • Keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

Assuming the interpretation of the Government’s advice is correct we will start boat lifting early on Wednesday morning and will aim to get all boats in the water as soon as possible. We will contact you to let you know available slots when your boat can go in. Unfortunately the tides are lower than we would like so we will need some careful planning. Please bear with us as we try to accommodate your wishes as soon as possible.

To protect our loyal staff we will request you do not go into the chandlery unless absolutely necessary. Items to be purchased can be delivered to your boat.

Kind regards,

Mark Aichroth
