Winter Dinghy Platform Parking – Online Application Form

Application for platform parking for dinghies this winter is now online. Please use the form here to apply and pay.

Dinghies taking part in either the junior training sessions or the DMYC Frostbite racing series must complete this form prior to bringing their boats back on the platform.

Please note that platform parking DOES NOT REOPEN before Saturday 19th October as the boathouse still has to lift many keelboats on trailers and position them on the platform post our main lift-out on Saturday 12th October.

Thanking you in advance for your understanding

Lift-out day Saturday 12th October

The lift-out on the NYC platform is scheduled for Saturday 12th October 2019, weather permitting.

Platform space is limited and applications for keelboats should be returned AS SOON AS POSSIBLE with a cheque made payable to the National Yacht Club AND confirm their intention by sending an email to

The Winter Storage 2019 application form should be returned by Wednesday 2nd October at the very latest.
