Recreational boating banned in San Diego, CA
« on: April 04, 2020, 10:45:34 AM »

Unfortunately, our county health dept. just tightened their social distancing campaign, banning all recreational use of Public waterways, bays and beaches: including boating, water sports, and swimming. As of now the marinas are still open, so we can get to our boats to work on them or just chill-out, but are not allowed to cast-off the lines. Time to varnish!

One might say things are going a little too far.

They certainly are.  The significant differences between different ports & different states is incomprehensible.  Flat-earthers making nautical decisions.  What could go wrong?

Thank goodness, what would we do without big government to tell us how to live our lives!

Unbelievable.  It's hard to get closer to six feet on the water so what's the rational?  I can see it coming...next they will tell us we can't drive our gas powered cars/boats because of climate change.  The new progressive order.

You are right that you can't get within 6 feet while sailing, but how did you get to your boat? Car?  Did you stop for gas along the way?  What about provisions?  All of these interactions increase the chance of spread.  And the more people that are driving, the greater the chance of an accident which is the last thing our health system needs right now.  I understand that these restrictions may seem overly strict, but ask a nurse or doctor in NYC if they wish that restrictions had been stronger and you may have a different opinion.

That's the drawback of blanket restrictions;   My yacht club is less than 5 minutes from my house.   I drive most of the time but I could walk.   I can dinghy out to my mooring if necessary.  Luckily they have not closed marinas here but i would be upset if they did.

Hopefully that doesn't spread East.  Getting out on the boat is the only thing I've been looking forward too.

It gets even sillier. The Port of San Diego closed down the bay to recreational boating, but left its two main public anchorages (La Playa in Shelter Island and Glorietta Bay in Coronado) open. A true "you can't get there from here" situation. The Port has since figured out that didn't make a lot of sense, and closed the anchorages as well. Still this policy has me scratching my head.

Finally some good news. I just looked at the San Diego Port Authority website. Beginning Friday May 1, recreational boating is allowed on San Diego Bay. All persons on the vessel must be from the same household.
