Yard Open to Vehicles on 21 June

As of Monday, 21 June, the yard will re-open to vehicle access during the weekdays. Members are reminded to park in designated areas and not block trailer-launched or dry sail boats. Please drive slowly as we will soon have children and families at the Sailing School. If leaving a vehicle overnight, please make arrangements with the Front Office.

Boat Trailers – Need to Remove before 25 June

Now that most of the launch activities are completed, the boat trailers outside the yard in the grassed area adjacent to the main gate need to be removed before the temporary lease runs out with the City on 25 June. Only those trailers that have been “grandfathered” can be stored in the yard. All other trailers must be taken offsite please.

Water Level Warning – NSC Harbour and Channel

Water levels are unusually low for this time of year. Currently 20 cm below chart Datum. Boats with a draft of 5 ft. or more need to exercise extreme caution in the harbour and NSC channel. Avoid “ hugging “  either side of the channel due to chance of hitting the concrete anchors holding the marks in place. When making the final right turn into the harbour at the last Red buoy,  stay well away from the  lighthouse spit or you will find mud.
