Covid-19 Updated Safety Measures

Moorings Sailing Catamaran in BVI

In preparation for the reopening of our global charter destinations, we are hard at work reshaping our policies to ensure the safety of our staff and charter guests. We have aligned our cleaning procedures with the current guidance of the relevant authorities including the WHO, CDC, and local operating governments. Rest assured that when you set sail again, we have taken every precaution to keep you and your family safe and provide you with peace of mind to make the most of your time on the water.

Please note we are continuing to monitor and respond to the ongoing circumstances surrounding Covid-19 and may update our policies accordingly in the future.

Our Team

  • Staff will be instructed to adhere to strict social distancing guidelines (2 meters / 6 feet apart)
  • All staff members will be required to wear protective masks, gloves, and other personal protective equipment where necessary and/or follow applicable local government policy
  • All staff will be temperature-checked daily before the workday begins
  • Strict handwashing and sanitizing policies have been put in place
  • Onboard Crew has been trained in our Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Disinfecting (CSD) procedures, and has extensive knowledge of food handling, waste management, and medical requirements.
  • The onboard crew will be instructed to adhere to social distancing while on charter and encouraged to wear protective equipment when this is not possible. We ask that you also do your upmost to maintain social distancing from our onboard crew.

Our Yachts

  • Each yacht will be disinfected via fogging immediately upon return to the dock. They will then be cleaned, sanitized, and disinfected again prior to next boarding.
  • Galley inventory pack to be provided in a verified CSD sealed box, labeled and dated. Eco-friendly single-use items are also available for purchase prior to charter if preferred.
  • Linens to be provided in a verified CSD sealed bag.

  • Complimentary masks and snorkels will no longer be provided on charter, however we will still be providing complimentary fins for guests. It is recommended that guests bring their own snorkel equipment. New equipment is also available for purchase upon arrival at the marina.

Arrival at Marina

  • Transfers arranged by us will be conducted in line with government regulations. Guests will be seated in accordance with local government policy.
  • Where possible we recommend reserving your private base transfers in advance, which can be arranged and pre-paid through your Vacation Planner.
  • Direct Boarding - A customer service team member will meet the guests on arrival and show them directly to their yacht. However, if we are unable to do so, the guests will be shown to a secondary area which will adhere to social distancing requirements. Luggage will be taken to the yacht by a team of porters equipped with necessary PPE.
  • All payments at the marina will be made via debit or credit card where possible to reduce the handling of cash and support hygienic practices.
  • Hand washing and sanitizing stations are available.
  • All required chart briefings and yacht briefings will be carried out on board. Mask and gloves are to be worn as necessary and social distancing (6ft/2m) is to be conducted.

What You Can Do to Help

  • During your time with us on the base or any interaction with our staff, we ask you to continue to use your face mask if local government policy dictates enforcement.
  • Complete all required documentation online prior to your arrival, provided to you via email.
  • Order your provisioning online in advance of your charter*.
  • Pre-order watersports equipment in advance of your charter.
  • While on charter, we request that the captain and first mate monitor their crews’ health via ships log and notify the proper local authorities if there are any passengers with COVID-19 symptoms.

Brighter days are ahead, and we look forward to enjoying them with you in paradise someday soon.
