Changes to winter dry-berth licensing of vessels on the hardstanding & racking for 2019

1. Sailing Dinghies & Dayboat owners

No dinghies, apart from Club dinghies, will be stored on the hardstanding over winter from October.   Dinghy owners wishing to regularly sail over winter may apply for licenses from 1st September but spaces for these will be very limited.  A small number of licenses may be issued on a first-come-first served basis when we know how much space is left after craning, but these dinghies would have to be removed from the harbour before craning as usual.  Dayboat owners with winter dry-berth licenses, whose vessels are obliged to remain on their moorings until after craning, shall recover them to the hardstanding within the first week after craning, or their spaces will be licensed to winter dinghy sailors.

2. Kayaks/canoes/paddleboards

 Whilst there is available space, winter racking licenses will be included in invoicing during February 2019.  Such craft are only to be accommodated on racking.

3. Tenders & small rowing boats (<4.8m)

Priority is given to tenders to summer LFHA-moored vessels at the Harbour.  Over winter, these are confined to Ted’s Folly & specified positions against the cliff-face or within the plan-view of the mother vessel on the hardstanding.   Apart from the latter, owners of such vessels must remove them from the harbour over winter.
