Summer season is typically from the date that the Harbour Board declares the ‘Harbour Open’ to dinghies (usually about a week after craning) until a week before craning ashore.
Winter season typically starts about a week after craning ashore & closing about a week before craning afloat.
Craning dates are dependent on Spring Tides but typically fall in April & October.
Craning fees only apply to members requiring a lift at the start & end of the season and are additional to licence fees. Craning fees are dependent upon the crane hire charge, the number of boats lifted and the maintenance of a reserve should extra costs arise from unforeseen events or cancellations of crane hire. For Members requiring a crane lift at the start of the summer season, the fee is usually included in the overall licensing invoice. A second separate payment is also due for any crane lift at the end of the summer season.
