Boating is banned in San Diego
Published on April 4th, 2020
San Diego, CA (April 4, 2020) – After closing boat ramps on March 24 to discourage non-essential gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic, the County of San Diego is taking the next step today.
Until further notice, all boating for recreational purposes, watersports, or swimming are prohibited on or in public waterways and at beaches.
As the city’s front porch, San Diego Bay will now be closed to recreation – including boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, and recreational fishing.
Cortez Racing Association, which hosts the annual Wednesday evening Beer Can Series, has postponed the schedule planned for May 20 to July 29. “We will work hard to get back to racing in June, if the situation and regulations allow,” they said in a statement. “The Beer Can Series will hopefully start in June and may run into August.”
