British Marine is inviting members, the wider leisure marine industry and end-consumers to take part in a survey for a major new report alongside the Canal & River Trust examining the economic, social and health benefits of boating and watersports in the UK, and the contribution they make to wellbeing.

Within the industry, the physical and mental health benefits of being on or near the water are already well-known. However, with Government increasingly factoring well-being into their decision making, this piece of research will demonstrate with empirical evidence the contribution that being on the water makes to societal wellbeing.

The report will detail the positive value and outcomes generated by the leisure marine industry and in turn, will help garner support from policy and decision makers, as well as funders and partners to secure the future of our industry and customer-base.

Please do have you say and ask your customers and contacts to do the same before 18 December. To complete the survey go to https://bit.ly/3qyJb0u.

The results of the survery and this market intelligence will be shared in Spring 2021, and could be a timely prescription after multiple lockdowns, to help showcase the wellbeing benefits of boating and watersports as Summer 2021 approaches.
