Compound and Storage Information
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.
Current fees are shown on the appropriate form which can be downloaded
1.For Storage requests in the main compound: Please DO NOT send any payment with your reservation form. Spaces will not be allocated until March when we have all the applications in. We are expecting a very full compound with many members purchasing boats and the rapid increase of our Cadet Fleet. Powered boats will be allocated space once the Sailing Section has been accommodated with Club Volunteers and helpers being given priority for the season.
2.Existing holders for Tender Racks, Kayak Racks and Engine store will be able to keep their allocation for a further year. Please contact the Club Administration Officer if you would like to move Racks.
3.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.
4.Your Club is very busy and we have several championships on. The Main Compound will be jammed full during the championship dates and access to your sailing dinghy may be not possible, restricted or awkward. Please be aware of the dates which will be published as soon as confirmed on the on-line calendar
All compounds are accessed by combination locks.
Keys will no longer be issued or used.
You will be notified of the relevant access codes when you pay for storage. These codes may not be published to third parties and in the event of any abuse, the codes will be changed. Hence it is essential to provide an e-mail address for combination notification
All cradles, trailers & prams must state the boat name
All boats in the main compound must be immediately moveable at a moments notice and not clamped.
YACHTS / KEELBOATS Winter Storage Policy
With space at a premium, it is entirely likely that we will find it difficult to accommodate all yachts in winter together with dinghies requiring storage in the club's main compound.
The position is compounded by the requirement to accommodate the Club's ribs, with access for possible launch, and definite servicing in the winter. It is assumed the club's own dinghies and tenders/shuttle will also require storage provision, with the shuttle in the main compound, and dinghies and tenders in the covered compound during the winter. Overspill of club tenders will be placed in the tender compound if necessary.
It is therefore proposed that space be 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 Club members which are regularly used.
The continued storage of boats which are not launched is to be actively discouraged.
DINGHIES / Summer arrangements etc.
Dinghies, including catamarans, are welcome, but they must be capable of being moved within the compound and not clamped. Trailers are to be removed from the compound
The only motorised vessels allowed in the main compound are those regularly used to support the on-water activities of the Club.
Boats owned by Members 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 on payment of the fee in advance.
The Admin Officer will provide a numbered sticker that must be affixed to the boat. This only covers the Summer Sailing season.
Hobie Cats may be stored in the main compound for a whole year, if there is space, at a fee payable in advance. They must have a current year numbered sticker attached.
All dinghies & catamarans are subject to removal 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.
Unpaid boats should be removed within three weeks of the Club requesting this, or they may be disposed of by the Club.
TENDERS & ENGINES
Tenders (inflatable dinghies) and engines can be stored in our other compound, referred to as the "Tender Compound" Tenders will be allocated a rack number, stickers will no longer be issued for the tender compound
Note: Fuel cans must NOT be stored in the engine store. Any cans found will be removed and disposed of.
Kayaks and collapsible cradles can also be stored in the Tender Compound if space permits, please contact the Rear Commodore Sailing BEFORE bringing your Cradle/Kayak into the compound.
