Yard Rules

Allocation of winter yard space to take place before the 1st September each year. Should demand for yard space be greater than that  available, a draw will take place. Priority will be given to members who have not had a boat in the yard the previous year. If demand for summer yard space exceeds space available an allocation draw will be made.

Members must apply:
(a) for only one yard space; (b) even if they have a boat in the yard.

Space will be allocated only for the appropriate period. Should a member wish to leave a boat in the yard after the appropriate craning in, the space must be applied for. Special arrangements for long term projects must be obtained by applying to the management committee.
All dues must be settled prior to any craning or yard use. Any member who has a boat or cradle in the yard and not successful in being allocated a space in a draw, must remove the boat and cradle at or before the main craning out date for the appropriate period. A crane will be hired by the club of a size capable of lifting a 6 tonne boat from the water into the yard. If any members require a larger crane the extra costs will be for that owner’s account. The management committee reserves the right to :

(a) allocate any position in the yard; (b) move any boat if required.

Any costs incurred by the club in excess of those normally payable, for example water rates or rubbish removal, shall be shared between the boats in the yard over the period in question.


Charges to be levied as follows: Boat Space: £10.00 per metre for the 1st 2 x 6 month periods or part thereof.  This will rise by £10.00 per metre every 6 months thereafter. Multi-hulls to pay the equivalent per hull.


If dismantled and stored neatly no charge. Undismantled cradles and trailers will be charged £20.00 for 6 month period (empty). Cradles must be colour coded and clearly marked with the boat or owner’s name. Cradles must be stored in the compound or at home.


Will be charged £20.00 for each 6 month period or part thereof. Priority will be given to club owned dinghies. This charge to apply to canoes or surf equipment. Dinghy fees may be waived if the dinghy is used by the Club for training.


All boats including dinghies, canoes and surf equipment must have a minimum of third party insurance with a limit of liability of at least £3,000,000.

All members using the yard must be aware of and comply with the Club’s Health and Safety Document in particular with the sections that apply to the yard and craning.

Please take away your rubbish.
