Dear Bertholder,

We are very pleased to see the following announcement from the British Marine federation and it interpretation of the governments COVID policy and restrictions.

"British Marine is delighted that from 8 March watersports, including the use of privately-owned craft and self-drive day hire boats for single households, can go ahead in England (subject to local navigation and harbour authority guidance). This is provided the boats are open air. Furthermore, it has been concluded that marinas can open from 8 March to allow recreational boating to take place and boat brokerage can open in line with non-essential retail from 12 April.
It is welcome news that outdoor recreation is again in the first wave of lockdown restrictions to be lifted. The physical and mental benefits of being on or near the water and the natural social distancing that all forms of boating and watersports offer will be invaluable this summer."

Welcome to Blackwater Marina

Blackwater Marina lies on the UKís east coast in a natural, sheltered harbour between the historic maritime towns of Maldon and Burnham on Crouch. The Continent is a dayís sail away, and London an hour by car or train.

The marina has fully serviced pontoon berths for 196 vessels and hardstanding for another 150. In addition, its 100 swinging moorings can offer access at all states of the tide to the regionís best cruising waters and some of the UKís rarest wildlife.

The marina has a rich heritage and today is home to an enviable diversity of craft Ė from Thames Barges and fishing smacks to racing yachts and modern motor cruisers. The extensive shoreside facilities are also decidedly modern, but one thing hasnít changed over the years Ė the good old-fashioned Blackwater welcome.
