Waterfront Update 29 June 2021

Tenders

The Tender service is running Monday – Friday from the outer pontoon.

Weekends from the inner pontoon.

NB: please walk down the driveway and not via the CCA steps. The tender will transport up to 6-8 members of the same crew per journey (depending on the tender). Masks are mandatory on the tender.

To ease the pressure on the tender service and to reduce waiting times, we ask that skippers wait for their crew where possible before boarding the tender. After racing we ask that where possible skippers drop some crew off on the pontoon before returning to the mooring. Skipper/crew are requested to assist the tender drivers by being ready for pick up on time. A maximum of a TWO-minute wait time before the tender driver must move on to the next pick up.

Lifejackets
Members are encouraged to wear a lifejacket when working on their vessel by themselves on their mooring.
