We have a number of visitor moorings available on a 24 hour or weekly rental basis.
Visitor moorings can be found on The Bight: in the vicinity of number 13 and 15 lateral markers approximately 1 nautical mile from the harbour entrance (50°36.73N – 03°26.09W).
All visitor moorings are orange and clearly marked with a large V, with the maximum size of vessel in metres listed on the buoy. Moorings are assigned on a first come first served basis.
