The devil is in the detail. We have to wait to see the law going though parliament and then wait for the RYA advice. We will all know by Tuesday , one way or the other .

Very true. Thatís what the experts have been telling us from the start. Itís not going away ever. To believe anything different is just self delusion. We have to learn/ find ways  to live with it . Fingers crossed we get a vaccine that is effective.

hence the work on vaccines  etc and treatment modalities 

there will also be the inevitable mutation of the human strains of covid-19   which will tend ot  favour versions that  spread  well  but are  somewhat less deadl... however  2020 and 2021    are going to be  subject to restrictions  - as those areas maintaining they are covid  free   are doing so with  profund  restruictions  from a quarantine point of view

I think there is a decent hope that sailing will continue this time. Although you never know until the legislation is published.

I hope we avoid the obvious stupid situations like last time. Where we are required to follow obviously non-sensical rules and every local harbour and water company has their own take on what is 'essential exercise'. There's no doubt we need a lockdown, but hopefully we do a better job of shaping it around positive activities.

For instance, that you can go for  walk with a mate, but not golf, seems odd. Or go for a walk on the public footpath around a lake, but not for a sail on it. 

Or the discussion around for far can you travel to sail. When it makes zero difference.

Or the idea that sports will somehow overwhelm emergency services, and that the RNLI will be assisting plagued ships.

more the fact that ANY water rescue  situation were 999 is involved  involves  multiple resources and  staff numbers ...  same as the scenario with ill equipped and ill prepared  people
 deciding that going walking in the hills  is their 'essential  exercise'

But 999 resources were never under pressure. I think this whole message can be comprehensively chalked up as an overreaction. 

All the nimbys will of course see lockdown as an opportunity to crack down on people walking in their hills, on their beaches, or cycling through their town. Or just people who disapprove of fun.

I'd say obviously people should take relevant precautions, but no more or less than normal. It's inevitable that some people will need emergency help, but pretending that this will have any effect on fight against covid I don't get.

The whole thing is a clusterf**k, hospitals are at 40% we haven't touched the nightingales, anybody who works around the periphery of the medical supply world will tell you the false positive test rate is embarassingly high. Coastal regions are known to be low for whatever reason, and shall we call them ethnically dense areas very high one wonders if there is a communication issue not being addressed, not to mention flights to and from areas with high covid saturation with links between those areas here, garment workers in Leicester being an instance and Spanish construction workers another. Airport testing should have taken place back in February. This Government and it's Whitehall instruments have been shown to be completely incompetent from the Science down. It wouldn't surprise me one bit to see the start of civil disobedience this go round.
