All recreational boating is permitted- the new 2m2 rule applies to commercial vessels and therefore maximum capacity is allowed.

If those onboard are members of the same household, there does not need to be four square metres of space for each person. If those onboard are not members of the same household, they should maintain a physical distance of 1.5 metres from others, as is reasonably practicable.

People should continue to boat locally and always remember to practice good personal hygiene.
