Hoping they are correct but, for you Englanders, here's an extract (my bold type) that the RYA mailed me this morning:

"Following some recent announcements and amendments to restrictions by the UK Government I am pleased to say that in England at least, individual boaters are now once again permitted to go afloat. I regret to say that many restrictions do remain in place and at the current time these restrictions do mean that in the vast majority of cases RYA Training activity is unable to take place in the UK."

Good Luck and enjoy soon!

I have a launch date, I splash on the 20th. I can't seem to find any information on the port of Plymouth in terms of how open it is for recreational yachts. The river is crawling with MOD police so I suppose I'll find out soon enough!

You could look up the N t Ms (Notices to Mariners) for Plymouth. The QHM (Queen's Harbour Master) will have a website

Yes I've been doing that regularly, nothing current or useful. I even approached the commodore of my club, he was unable to get clarification. It went without a hitch in the end, and I stayed on the river with no issues, the police boat didn't even stop me,

Lockdown is boring. I have just looked at Marinetraffic.com for AIS information. I've looked at the South Coast from the Scillies to North Foreland. OK it's a grey day - but no yachts out there at all. I've also been on some webcams. No activity in the Solent or in the entrance to the Hamble.
