Compound and Storage Information

607804 orig

The Club is extremely fortunate to have several secured compounds adjacent to the Clubhouse and the launching slipway.

The Main Compound is used to store the Club 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 and outboard engines by arrangement and for a fee.

For ALL Storage requests please email


All compounds are accessed by combination locks; keys will no longer be issued or used.
Users will be notified of the relevant access codes when paying for storage.
These codes may not be published to third parties and in the event of any abuse, the codes will be changed.
It is essential that an e-mail address is provided for combination change notification.

All cradles, trailers & prams must state the boat name. The Admin Officer will provide a numbered sticker that must be affixed to each boat for the appropriate sailing season.

Summer arrangements

Member boats may be stored in the main compound for the sailing season only, from the week after Crane-in day to the week before Crane-out day.
Crane in/out day will be published in the On-Line Calendar and the main compound will be available for Dinghy storage from One week after Crane-In to one week before Crane-Out.

Dinghies, including catamarans, are welcome, but they must be capable of being moved within the compound and not clamped. Road trailers are to be removed from the compound.

A bay will be allocated to each of the dinghies in the compound. It is the owner's responsibility to ensure their boats remain in their bays.

Please contact if you would like to move bay.

All dinghies & catamarans must be removed from the compound for Club special events & championships, without compensation.
Owners will be notified in advance of dates that they will be required to move their dinghies.

Please visit the special events Page for dates when boats may need to be temporarily removed.

Hobie-Cats may be stored in the main compound for a whole year, if there is space.

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'.
Dinghies and tenders may be stored in the covered compound. Overspill of club tenders are placed in the tender compound as necessary.

Space is allocated in the following order:

1. Club boats

2. Vessels actively participating in club events

3. Vessels belonging to Members who assist in the organisation of club events.

4. Vessels belonging to Members which are regularly used.

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


Kayaks and collapsible cradles may also be stored in the Tender Compound if space permits.
Please contact BEFORE bringing your Cradle/Kayak into the compound.
