The following days have been arranged for cruiser owners to come and recover mooring buoys for the winter:-
Tuesday 4 October 13.00 (to 16.00)
Saturday 15 October 10.00 (to 13.00)
Sunday 16 October 11.00 (to 14.00)
Tuesday 1 November 11.00 (to 14.00)
John Clarke intends to have this as a team effort and fitter members can come out on the workboat to collect buoys while others can be involved with washing them down. If anyone isn't occupied, then it's tea and coffee duties!
You will have to provide a winter marker buoy, with your mooring number clearly marked, and 5-7 metres of suitable line (strong enough to lift your riser chain in the Spring!). Suitable 10mm line will be available at £1 per length as will some cans for purchase.
Please wear old clothing suitable for the weather and life jackets / buoyancy aids will be worn.
Please rememberthat if your buoy is left out over the Winter, your mooring tackle is likely to have half the normal working life.
No need to advise attendance, just turn up at a session time.
