LFHA Jargon


Summer / Winter - LFHA operates a two season year.  During the summer suitable vessels are moored whilst their tenders, sailing dinghies & canoes occupy the hardstanding.   During the winter months, most of these vessels  must be removed from Association property.


Storage vs Berthing
Whilst most summer-moored vessels are stored over winter on the hardstanding, the storage of sailing dinghies over winter is not permitted.  Storage implies taking up space with no regular boating involved.


Beach mooring - lighter-duty moorings within a few metres of MHWS for tenders only,  south of brook.  This does not include the Wet Harbour.


Craning - Typically in April and October (tide dependent) the Harbour Board hires a mobile crane to lift the larger vessels between the water and the hardstanding


Dry harbour / Dry Berth / Hardstanding - graveled area overlooked by LSC balcony, just above MHWS on which dinghies are berthed in summer, cruisers in winter


Wet harbour  / Wet Berth - tidal area bounded by the harbour walls but including the brook


Ted’s Folly - hardstanding to north of wet-harbour for tenders only


MHWS - mean high water springs - the average HEIGHT of the HIGH WATERS of SPRING TIDES above Chart Datum
