14.  I have a vessel licensed to remain on the hardstanding during summer.   How does this work?


Summer in LFHA terminology means the 6-month period between April and October.  During this time, dinghies, tenders, canoes and paddleboards are licensed to remain on the Harbour hardstanding, subject to available space.

April:  The Harbour Board announces the date on which a crane is hired to lift the winter-berthed cruisers etc from the hardstanding to the water.  Subsequently, a date & time is announced after which dinghies, tenders and canoes may be brought to the hardstanding.  A plan of what types of vessel go where may be posted on the LFHA Noticeboard.  When the area is demmed to be full, the Board will announce that the hardstanding is CLOSED, after which, a refund may be given to those who have missed out on a berth.

October: Usually a week before The Harbour Board announcement of the date on which a crane is hired to lift the winter-berthed cruisers etc from the water to the hardstanding, all small craft must be removed from the hardstanding, apart from tenders serving vessels still on moorings and canoes etc licensed for a winter dryberth on the racking.
