I think the jury is out on that issue 423, and I certainly don't need your apology. Lack of contagion in primary aged children? it's possibly the case but not certainly the case. Secondary aged children? they don't know either way.....as far as I can work out.

Uncertainty is a big problem. Ordinary folk want the experts to sound definite and the experts, once their proclamations have been filtered through the media, seemingly oblige......in reality facts are in short supply. It's a dangerous situation and we need info to work out our own personal strategies.

 Some ordinary folk will only deal with facts and scorn anything else, other more imaginative folk will in the absence of facts indulge in a bit of chat and speculative discussion, they'll sound out others, swap opinions, spot possible strategies and gauge feelings. The second group will always have access to more useful info...... IF they have the common sense to apply filters. It takes a bit more brain power but I know most on this forum have that ability. 

My strategy is forget sailing until the new year. Dragging boats around on shingle without winches, getting changed in the back of a cold van and driving home with a salty chuff is not my cuppa. Clubs and individuals need to toe the line and be seen to toe the line......mind you, if this goes on past April I shall be revolting.  Wink

I don't think its a terrible assumption to make :)

What is odd given the above are the university outbreaks, but I suppose there is a world of difference to a school with reasonably supervised physical distancing measures and a full Hall of `residence with everyone in each others pockets 24/7

I don't think there is evidence for that. Some receent studies appear to show that older (2ndry age) children can play a large role in covid infections. It does seem less clear for younger children, but even there I think it's necessary to be careful.

This week I spoke to a primary school teacher who said attempting to keep the kids apart is impossible - herding squirrels. She was positive that if any child was infected it would have torn through all the other kids and their parents

Another said that at the start of the autumn term the teachers were all tested and found to be negative but most tested positive for the anti bodies

The most interesting one was from an alleged SAGE advisor who said that they and the government are fully aware that, whilst not suffering unduly, young kids spread this like everyone else

It will be interesting to see if the 'lockdown' (which is a pretty poor version of a lockdown) has any effect at all whilst schools are still open?

Pretty sure it will have an effect,( after all, we sailors must be super spreaders) just not as big as needed.

Walked past 2 riding stables today. Both had lessons going on.

My local shopping area was packed yesterday afternoon, only hairdressers and barbers shut, everything was for sale, the off licence was also open, (mind if you were alcoholic, I suppose it's essential).

As there is no sailing going for a canoe tomorrow. It also has a sail so if there was any wind I could sail it also as BCU is allowing canoeing. As international canoes are also covered by the BCU I believe their value has sky rocketed.

Yes but a not unreasonable interpretation of the rules. Shame the same interpretation is not possible for the young dancers my wife is training towards a professional career.
