Statement from the organisers, 18 March 2020:
"The health of our boaters, visitors, volunteers and staff is our main priority, and we have spent the past few weeks closely monitoring advice and updates regarding coronavirus/COVID-19. It is with a heavy heart that we must postpone the annual Easter Boat Gathering. All of our stakeholders are being notified today and just to confirm, the meeting scheduled for tomorrow won’t be going ahead.
Thank you for all of the amazing work that you have put into planning the Easter Gathering, it’s much appreciated and we’ll use all of that work already done as a springboard for the next Easter Gathering when we can be one step ahead and come back bigger and better than ever next time round.
In the meantime stay tuned into the museums social media pages, keep in touch and take care."
