Commercial and charter vessels may operate, but must ensure they are operating within the restrictions associated with their category of business and the required social distancing requirements.
When onshore, do not gather as more than 10 people. This applies in any public place, such as a wharf or publicly accessible vessel. Skippers must also remember their other safety responsibilities regarding safety equipment, alcohol consumption, keeping a proper lookout and proceeding at a safe speed.
Further information about what you can and can’t do is available on What you can and can’t do under the rules.
