It’s a difficult and stressful time for everyone right now and we are all facing different types of challenges depending on where we are.
Here in BC things seem to be calming somewhat, thanks to good social distancing practices being followed by so many, but it still seems it will be quite a while before we get back to ‘normal’. Around the world, borders are being closed and ‘stay-at home’ orders are in place with varying degrees of enforcement. In some places it’s becoming increasingly difficult, and even risky, to move from place to place, an obvious challenge to the cruisers currently living in this way.
Bluewater Cruising Association has set up a place on our website homepage where we can share our questions and the information we find that might answer them. The new COVID & Cruising forum is open to all members no matter where you are, to post questions and add your input to discussions on the issues we face.
This is BCA – we are never alone. There are resources here available to you and to all our members to share, and you can be a part of it. Please check out and contribute to these new additions to our website:
For those still close to home, here is good advice from the BC Boating Association with some new special precautions to take if you decide to venture off the dock: Maintaining social distancing while boating in BC.
No matter where you are, be safe, be prudent, and, above all and as always, use good judgement when you apply the information shared by others to your specific situation.
