Boats on trailers may be launched by arrangement with the Yard Marshall.
Fees are payable as follows:
Vessels (yawls / RIBs / trailer sailers / motor boats / other craft at Yard Marshall's discretion) under 16 ft £20.00
Vessels (yawls / RIBs / trailer sailers / motor boats / other craft at Yard Marshall's discretion) over 16 ft and under 25 ft £40.00
Launching of trailer mounted boats is governed by the Club policy on Safe Systems of Work. Two persons are needed for the operation. One person must act as banksman and watch for obstructions not visible to the driver including overhead. Trailer and vehicle must be suitable for a gradient of 1:5.7 and for the size and weight of the vessel which must be properly secured. The trailer must be connected to the vehicle hitch at all times. If there is doubt about competency ask for assistance.
