Mooring Survey August 2016

We had previously advised members that a new survey of the Association’s moorings was to take place and this was carried out last month.   Lat. Long and UK OS positions of 76 moorings were logged, of which 13 (17%) could not be identified because the buoys had no identification number or no boat attached.   No action will be taken until the start of the 2017 season, at which time, if they are still unmarked, it will be assumed that they are abandoned and the buoys will be removed.

As a result of the survey, moorings which could not be found have been removed from the active list and are now available for re-allocation.

A reminder that moorings must be inspected, at least on an annual basis, & that includes the messy bits in the mud.
