The Bosun is in charge of the site and the marina, aided by the Assistant Bosun, and members of the site committee. Work around the site is done by professional contractors where appropriate, but mostly by the site committee and volunteers who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience, and who have to tackle everything no matter how mundane. Help is always welcome.
Rates and charges are set annually in November/ December for the following calendar year.
Permanent berth for boats up to 30ft for 12 months includes unlimited use of the crane, pressure washer, and for boats under 2 tons the opportunity to store the boat ashore (subject to availability). Part year is not available. £305 pm pa.
If berthholders are considering changing their vessel, please contact the Bosun, in advance, to ensure that the proposed boat will fit into available spaces.
Each services pedestal on the new marina is fitted with two 16 amp mains power outlet sockets. Each socket is controlled by its own card operated meter. The marina meter cards are pre-loaded with a monetary value corresponding to a number of units of electricity. The cards are available for purchase from the Club bar and office and in the following denominations: £1, £5 and £10. Once a card is inserted into the meter it will allow units of electricity to be used up to the value purchased. At current electricity prices a £1 card will dispense 5 units of electricity e.g. 5 Kw hours. Once the card’s value is used up no further electricity will be dispensed until a new card is purchased and inserted. Berth holders may protect their electricity supply by fitting their meter with their own padlock. Permanent berth holders must deposit a padlock key with the Office and/or the Bosun.
During the winter months when space may become available for longer periods, members may apply to berth in the marina. Price on application
Each services pedestal is fitted with a permanently live, self-sealing, mains water outlet socket.
