The Club has a large, secure yard for storage of boats under maintenance. The yard is serviced by a heavy duty tractor that can handle vessels up to 14 tonnes and up to 2.2m draught, depending on the tide. Twenty three cradles and a gantry are available for rent and a high pressure water blasting hose is available for removing those dreaded underwater hangers-on!
The area is also available for storage of vessels, when space is available, by arrangement with the Club Manager.
*Notes: Haulout and launching include use of all equipment associated with the activity (e.g. loader, tractor, cables etc.) and labour up to a maximum of two people for 45 minutes for each boat movement.
The Haulout Yard Manager is Tim Riley and he can be contacted on (03)328 8067. Tim schedules and manages use of the facilities. Twenty four hours notice must be given before launching any craft from the Haulout area. Be aware that launching and haulout can be limited by tides and weather.
A sailmaker has his loft opposite the Club carpark entrance.
