Mooring Buoy Work Parties 2018

24/09/2018 20:26 | Hon Secretary (Administrator)

For the attention of all cruiser owners with moorings.

The following days have been arranged for you to come and recover your mooring buoy and swivel for the winter.

Saturday 6th October 0830 (HW 1100)

Sunday 28th October 1200 (HW1440)

Thursday 8th November 1000 (HW 1250)

Friday 9th November 1030 (HW 1330)

I intend to have this as a team effort. Fitter members can come out on the workboat to collect buoys and take them to the slipway, where others can then take them to the wash down to be power washed. If anyone isn't occupied it's tea and coffee duties!

You will have to provide a winter marker buoy with your mooring number clearly marked, and 7 metres of suitable rope/light chain. If you can’t find your marker buoy, there are a lot in the container.

This line must be thick enough and strong enough to lift your riser chain to the surface in the spring when it is all green and slimey!

Please wear old clothing suitable for the weather, and a buoyancy aid or lifejacket if coming afloat.

Please remember that if your buoy is left out over the winter, your mooring tackle is likely to have half the normal working life.

No need to advise attendance, just turn up at a session start time.
