The Harbour hardstanding will open for summer licensed vessels (dinghies, rowingboats, canoes) on Sunday 14th April and close on Wednesday 9 October 2019. No dinghies or canoes may be brought to the hardstanding before this date without written permission.  Tenders to vessels afloat on moorings may be brought to the hardstanding.

Winter dry-berthed dayboats that are not craned afloat must be removed from the hardstanding before craning day.  License labels are available for them on windowsill of LSC foyer.

License Labels for most will be available from LSC from 1st April 2019 at the latest.


Season End

From 1st September 2019, applications for winter berthing of regularly used dinghies (no storage) and as yet unlicensed canoes and boards will be considered by the Harbour Board as available allocated space allows.

Dinghies, canoes & tenders* not licensed for winter shall be removed from the harbour by Wednesday, 9th October.

Dayboats that winter dry-berth on the hardstanding shall only come ashore AFTER the crane has departed the village. By default, such vessels should come ashore within days, else seek Board approval to remain afloat longer.

*Tenders to dayboats still on moorings may remain on hardstanding without winter license.
