To comply with the national lockdown beginning 6th January 2021 the clubhouse is closed to all members with immediate effect and club boats are not available for use.

Dart Harbour have issued a Local Notice To Mariners which outlines restrictions on the use of the river:

  • Businesses and services involving outdoor sportsgrounds and facilities (including water sports venues) are required to cease carrying on that business or providing that service.
  • If you choose to exercise through activities such as swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking or rowing, then you should consider; a) do you feel this is within the spirit of the rules and b) the impact that this could have on the emergency services should you get in to difficulty. Consideration should also be given to the lack of traffic on the river therefore limited opportunities to report incidents.

Government guidance also states you should not travel outside your local area for your once per day exercise.

This decision will be reviewed as Government guidance evolves and our Covid page will be updated to reflect any changes.
