11/05/20: As from May 18th, Irish residents will be allowed to go out in their boats provided they're less than 5 km away, and they have to come back to the same port – they are not allowed to call elsewhere or to visit any of the inhabited islands. The presumption is day-sailing.
04/05/20: The Irish Taoiseach has issued a five point plan to re-open the country in a phased way, although clarity is needed. From 18 May, outdoor spaces and tourism sites in Ireland can re-open, a move which has largely been seen by marinas as allowing them also to re-open. Phase 2 from 8 June will put boats back on the water for sailing and training and Phase 3 beginning on 29 June might allow racing to restart. Phase 4 on 20 July will see sports competitions resume with limitations on spectator numbers whilst phase 5 on 10 August sees a further relaxation with gyms re-opening and close physical contact sports and festivals resuming, again with caveats such as regular cleaning and social distancing.
