Morning Peter and Lynall.
Our club secretary has interpreted the RYA advice on this as follows:
You can sail if you can launch or access your boat from a public slipway - that excludes our club as it's private. We also may not work on our boats on the hard.
I haven't checked source info but will comply with his advice to our members. Thanks Tony

Sure I read the other day that boats and watersports are allowed?

The Broads Authority policy is not directly relevant to other waterways but the bit about: "However, people may leave home to secure their second home, caravan or boat in order to avoid it posing a risk of harm/injury to themselves or others." might be useful ammunition if anyone is stopped on the way to/from their boat. The original item is at: https://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/news/coronavirus-covid-19?fbclid=IwAR2tgnfsfJr4N80KTMsImBIbm6-QfK7VXRaL0k9QO6qEJKkh6hD09LIZVqc Might be worth printing it off for the car.
