Rule 37 Update

Changes to the rule governing the allocation of Southwick moorings

The land on which our Southwick west pontoon is built is leased from the port and this lease expires in 2019. In addition, the physical structure of the jetty is now at the end of its design life. Rebuilding this jetty in the same location is not an option as it’s location conflicts with the ports own development plans for the Lady Bee marina. Accordingly a new layout for our Southwick moorings has been designed. Various configurations are under consideration but none provide the same number of berths at Southwick that we currently enjoy.

Natalie will be on hand to make introductions if necessary. No booking is required, so you can leave it to the last minute to decide.
