Platform Clearance

Dear Winter Platform Parking users.

The Winter Platform Parking Season is coming to an end and we need a total platform clearance of all the dinghies and other types currently on the deck and / or on racks to make room for the lift-in which is scheduled for Saturday 9th April.

If your boat is not in use in one of the Club organised training anymore please make sure to come and collect it as soon as possible as the skeleton boathouse staff needs to reconfigure the platform well in advance of the lift-in and to reposition, or partially dismantle the racks used by the Opis, Toppers, Lasers and RS Aeros.

ALL dinghies must be removed by Sunday 2nd April 18:00 at the very latest.

Please note that we do not have room to store any boat even temporarily on the Carlisle Pier until the platform reopens for the Summer parking season and cannot facilitate any such request.

The Committee is currently reviewing the UNPRECEDENTED HIGH DEMAND for platform space from the various user groups this summer (junior dinghy sailors / adult dinghy sailors / single handed / 2 handed boats / keelboat dry sailing) and will have to limit the various classes of boats to strict numbers.

The Boathouse will allocate Parking Spaces on the Platform based on historic demand and any current assumptions that may impact that. This means that the number of parking spaces for each type of craft will pre-determined and that a number of rounds of allocations based on priority rules soon to be published will take place successively.

An online summer platform parking application form reflecting the fact that demand will outstrip supply will be issued shortly.
