Langstone Harbour Notice to Mariners No 13 of 2020

Date:

The public slipway at Ferry Point, Hayling Island will re-open on Saturday 23rd May. Please show consideration to other users and observe measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 infection during launching and recovery operations.

The slipway is likely to be busy and users are reminded that Government advice on social distancing and restrictions on public gatherings of more than two people remains in place.

Users are reminded again to ensure that their craft are well maintained prior to launching. Rescues pose a risk to both the casualty and the rescuer and there is likely to be reduced rescue response capacity in the Harbour.

Compliance with Government advice to prevent the spread of infection will be closely monitored and the slipway may be closed again if social distancing cannot be maintained.
