Statement released by MDL Marinas on Friday afternoon, 11 September:
It is with regret we have to confirm that the Ocean Village Boat Show has been cancelled.
Southampton City Council informed us yesterday that we couldn’t go ahead as planned due to the increased spread of Covid-19 nationally, and the need for stronger control measures to reduce transmission both in Southampton and across the country.
Although the Director of Public Health for Southampton City Council has praised the way we’ve worked incredibly hard to risk assess our activities and implement a range of safety measures, the decision was communicated to us late yesterday.
We worked very hard to see if we could find a solution, but sadly we cannot go ahead with our show.
If you had booked tickets to the Show, then the broker may contact you to arrange an alternative time and place to view your chosen boats.
We hope that we will be able to welcome you at some point in the future.
