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.
