Latest Exe Estuary Water Use Restrictions: COVID-19

Please carefully read the links below for full statements from the harbourmaster Grahame Forshaw:

To summarise: following from the latest guidance that was received last evening (12th May 2020);

from Wednesday 13th May 2020, kayaks, wind-surfers, kiteboards, fishing from shore, paddleboards (SUPs) and sailing dinghies will be permitted in the Exe Estuary and Exeter Ship Canal for recreational purposes on the grounds of exercising outdoors as with the Governments latest statement.

Recreational use of PWCs, motorboats, sailing vessels and visiting vessels to the Exe Estuary is prohibited as we are awaiting further guidance from the Department of Transport and Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

By using the estuary you are increasing the possibility of added strain to the RNLI, please think about this before undertaking your exercise. You must continue to follow social distancing guidance.
