Our coastguard partner Federal Public Service (FPS) Mobility and Transport wishes to report the following:
the measures for containing the corona virus include a prohibition on recreational shipping, both individually and in group, in the Belgian territorial waters of the North Sea until April 3rd 2020.
This means that also the individual practice of water sports such as surfing, wakeboarding, kitesurfing,... is not allowed during this period of time.
What is still allowed:
Merchant vessels can call at/depart from Belgian harbours (usual reporting procedures apply)
