Berthing Fees 2018-2019

It’s that time of year again! Berthing fees will soon be due for 2018/2019. It has therefore been decided by your Council that berthing fees, which have remained static for two years, will this year increase by a modest amount. Berthing Fees for the 2018/2019 sailing season will be as follow:

Adult Berth – due on 01/02/2018: £48

Junior Berth – due on 01/02/2018: £37

WebCollect is now available to take your payments. Please click on the Web Collect Button below to start payment. Payment by cash and cheque, although possible, incurs a large administrative overhead.

You will need to choose the number of berths you require and the complete the form for each boat. Note that we now require the boat number rather than the sail number. This will help in identifying boats in the boat park. (In 90% of cases these numbers will be the same).
