    Tide tables covering the meeting. Other points to note - there is a new Lidl store just opened opposite the Sailing Academy and the chandlers Apollo Marine have moved to a new building on the last roundabout before the marina car park, the large banners outside are the giveaway. These might not show yet on the general information maps/diagrams.

    Confirmation for the Lulworth ranges active / closure times for 2020 plus VHF channels, phone numbers. The booklet is in the marina office for anyone who wants one on board.

    I have contacted the Marina and the BBQ will not be available until further notice (Unlikely this calendar year is the message). The bar / café are not open.

    There is no problem with any of the local boats fishing at any time now as long as crews are from the same household or are 'socially distanced' on board as well as on shore.

    However there is no overnight stays on boats in the marina and hotel / B&B accommodation is not available under the current rules as everyone must return to their main residence. Which means any visiting boats can only do so for the day or drive home if the boat is in the marina.

    My suggestions are we postpone to August / September /October (Autumn can be good for weather and toothy things) if you want a meet or cancel.

    @LilBrit , @kenc , @Gcs, @John Ratcliffe,@MICKJAMES, @Jeff Kennett, @Roy Igglesden,
    @cloutie, @Espadon , @Neil Edwards, @Partners, @StuFish24, @OdysseyAngling
    @Mike Hall, @Plaicehunter, @mulletman, @Andy135, @hoges, @seapike

    Views then please - thanks Steve

    Postponement seems the sensible option to me. Social distancing on a boat is difficult unless you are Spurs owner Joe Lewis! PH

    To reschedule to the autumn works for me. For obvious reasons until now I haven’t been able to take out my new boat to run in the engine and generally find out what’s what.

    Hi Wf, could I maybe/hopefully be added to the list of attendees and tag along if it goes ahead in August ?? My only trouble is being a carer I may not be able to be there if mum's not ok. Won't know untill nearer the time unfortunately.
