Compound and Storage Information
The Club is extremely fortunate to have several secured compounds adjacent to the Clubhouse and the launching slipway.
Main Compound is used to store the Club owned RIBs and Dinghies all year round but also in the Summer season it is available for members to store their own dinghies (for a fee).
In the Winter months it is used for fee-paid dry storage of member keelboats, which are craned-out of the water in the Autumn and craned-in to the water in the Spring.
In addition, the smaller Tender Compound houses member dinghy tenders kayaks and outboard engines by arrangement and for a fee.

Dinghies, including catamarans, are welcome, but they must be capable of being moved within the compound and not clamped. Empty road trailers are to be removed from the compound.
All dinghies & catamarans must be removed from the compound for Club special events & championships, without compensation.

Please visit the special events for dates when boats may need to be temporarily removed.
Hobie-Cats may be stored in the main compound for a whole year,

There may be space for a few dinghies in the winter but this cannot be guaranteed. Applications cannot be considered until the Crane out List has been populated during September.
Important: Any boat for which the fee has expired should be removed within three weeks of the Club requesting this, or they may be disposed of.
Tenders & Engines
Tenders (inflatable dinghies) and engines can be stored in the Tender Compound. Tenders will be allocated a rack number.
Note: Fuel cans must NOT be stored in the engine store. Any cans found will be removed and disposed of.
Winter Arrangements -Yachts/Keelboats
With space at a premium, it is not possible to accommodate all yachts for the winter alongside dinghies requiring storage in the Club's main compound.
The compound must also accommodate the Club's RIBs, with access for possible launch and servicing, plus the Club's own dinghies and tenders, and potentially 'Shuttle'.
Club owned Dinghies and tenders may be stored in the covered compound. Overspill of club tenders are placed in the tender compound as necessary. Please see winter storage terms and conditions plus compound rules below below.
Winter storage space is allocated in the following order:
1. Club boats
2. Vessels actively participating in club events

Note: The continued storage of boats which are not launched is actively discouraged.
