During a Pandemic 4 T. Morris Sorry Leslie but I respectfully disagree with your recommendation of going out for a day sail. The Canadian Coast Guard has stated: "With the start of the boating season underway in B.C., heading out to the water may be tempting for residents.But with the COVID-19 pandemic still ongoing, the Canadian Coast Guard is asking people to stay off the water unless it is needed." - April 25th, 2020It is pretty clear that they are telling people not to take their boats out unless it is necessary.

COVID update from LaPaz 3 J. Oliver For R. Raymond: if you use Facebook: check out the French Poly Cruisers Facebook Group. They share some valuable resources for cruising that area. For Dennis: Great to see your update. Different locations in Mexico have different levels of lockdown. We checked out at Ensenada. Closures started to happen, limited Port Captain hours, grocery store staff wearing gloves, masks. Start of limiting quantities for certain items. Most important that I found is to find government sources for your answers or call directly to Marina. We had a lot of information provided to us that was incorrect.
