How will Webby cope?

Postby marisca » Thu Jul 23, 2020 11:08 am

Eire is still subjecting UK arrivals to 14 days quarantine. Does that mean Webby gets incarcerated for a fortnight every time he stops on his way to the sun?

Still hoping to get away at the end of next week, but all up in the air at the moment for various reasons, pandemic politics and boatyard shenanigans with Fairwinds among them. Also looking into getting Spanish residency when we arrive in the Canaries. If it is this year or never then that is a b ig incentive to go. Who could ever have anticipated the dual buggerations of Covid and Brexit?

Passage plan atm is down to Ardglass then across to Holyhead and direct from there to the Scillies or with a stop in Fishguard.

Ireland is still offering 'port in a storm' refuge, obviously, and the indications I have received is that if you did enter (eg) Arklow you would be allowed to tie up but not allowed off the boat for 14 days. They would not stop you leaving in the morning though. Or so some bloke said . . . as things are right now, I think the Republic is best avoided.

As regards us 'getting back in' - well, if we are going to sail all the way and stay long enough to get residency sorted then it will probably be the end of November before we are back, when we will need to try to get Fairwinds ready to go in the water and pry her from the boatyard's clutches.

He is going for the full burn, France plus 14 days quarantine, then onwards to Spain, for 14 days quarantine, the Portugal for another 14 days.

Seriously, sounds like he is on his well on his way. Heading to France now, or maybe crossing Biscay as I type.

Safe travels Webby.

What time does the 24hour garage close?
