The club has two main moorings areas: about 25 fore and aft moorings inside the harbour entrance and pontoon berths for over a dozen yachts in the inner dock.
In addition, we have a well equipped clubhouse, a dinghy store and a spacious compound for winter storage. Club members may use a work boat for laying moorings and race marks. Fees are calculated on a price per metre basis, according to the length of yacht.
Currently boats from 19 feet to 29 feet are accommodated on the fore and aft moorings. All mooring gear is the responsibility of the respective owners, but the Club’s elected Harbour Committee can advise and assist. The size limit for pontoon berths is 38ft (11.6m).
The club hires a crane twice a year for lift-in and lift-out. These occasions occur in March or April and at the end of the season, in October. Costs are shared equally between club members.
All fees listed are valid for 2021.
Fore and Aft Moorings
The fee for the sailing season (April – September) is calculated at the rate of £36.00 per metre of overall length, rounded up to the nearest tenth of a metre.
The overall ANNUAL fee for pontoon berths is £115 per metre, which is split into a summer rate of £90 per m and a winter rate of £25 per m. Therefore, if pontoon berth holders wish to crane out into the yard for the winter, they pay a yard fee which is equal to that paid by all other members (see below: £25 per m). For all members who take a WINTER ONLY pontoon berth (mooring elsewhere during the summer), the fee is 50% of the annual rate, which calculates at £57.50 per m.
For invoicing purposes, the minimum boat length for pontoon berths is 8m.
In the club yard, summer storage is charged at £25 per metre.
Winter storage rates apply after the end-of-season lift-out. These are charged at £25 per metre for boats in the yard as well as for boats that remain on the pontoons.
