Recreational boating in England

The government has set out new regulations that will pave the way to the easing of all restrictions in England from 21 June at the earliest. The regulations (The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Steps) (England) Regulations 2021) came into force on 29 March.


When going to U.K. there are new regulations you have to follow and a Form C1331 you have to submit to advise the Border Force of your trip.…/notice-8-sailing-your-pleasure…

This is a useful roadmap produced by the RYA

When you arrive in the UK, you will need to follow the UK’s self-isolation rules. If you arrive in the UK from the Common Travel Area (‘CTA’) (UK, Republic of Ireland, Bailiwick of Guernsey, Jersey and Isle of Man) you will not be required to self-isolate on arrival in the UK. 

You will have to follow the COVID-19 rules which apply to the part of the UK that you are visiting.

The UK’s COVID-19 border measures can change at short notice so it is recommended that you check the latest UK information before travel (bearing in mind the place of your arrival into and departure from the UK)
