Rafting: Guidance during COVID-19

How to raft safely at our marinas

As we continue to see an easing of restrictions across the UK, the following tips will help ensure that you practise safe rafting with other boats:

  • Use the VHF or telephone for communicating
  • Make sure you wear gloves while rafting
  • Make sure you sanitise your cleats
  • Keep a bucket of mooring lines in saltwater to help sanitise the lines
  • Try to arrange a “you stand back, I come forward” approach with other vessels

Our teams will also be on hand to help and offer safe rafting advice, so if you have any concerns, just ask!
