The Barcelona Clúster Nàutic has organized a virtual meeting for the members with the general manager of Ports de la Generalitat, Joan Pere Gómez, to discuss the situation of the yachting industry in the post-Covid-19 era and the measures to reopen ports and nautical activities.
"We all have doubts about the coming months, nobody knows what will happen or how the post coronavirus will be like. I am proactive and I am convinced that we must all work together to reactivate the economy, but we also have to be very cautious", the representative of the Catalan ports said.
Much of the meeting has focused on the phases of de-escalation for nautical activities, which are the responsibility of the central government. According to Joan Pere Gómez, next Monday all Catalonia will be in phase 1 minus the coast of Barcelona, which will remain in phase 0.
In phase 1, people can sail within the same municipality of residence, without exceeding 12 miles from the port, and with some restrictions for passengers on board. Charter is allowed with these same restrictions.
"I would like to say that in phase 2 we will be able to navigate calmly and without limits, but the information we have is not this. I do not think we can navigate normally, freely and without limits, until July 1", Gómez added answering questions from Neus Jordi, project manager of the Barcelona Clúster Nàutic.
The best teams will meet at the 47 CaixaBank Conde de Godó Trophy. Real Club Nautico de Barcelona will become the focus of the national sailing world.
Superyacht Technology Conference and Awards will gather in Barcelona the best of the technology companies from both within the superyacht industry and outside.
