The BBC has announced that as of today (30 March) there will be some minor changes to its broadcasting timetable due to the impact of Coronavirus.

On weekdays, there will be a reduction of the Shipping Forecast segment to just three programmes a day. The Shipping Forecast will be broadcast on both FM and LW at the following times: 0533, Midday and 0048. At the weekend, the programme will be at these times: 0533, 1800 and 0048, all on FM and LW.

The RYA does however, support the Guidance from the UK Government, which is being updated on a regular basis. Having strengthened measures to tackle the spread of Coronavirus, the message is clear ‘STAY HOME – PROTECT THE NHS – SAVE LIVES’.
