GYC Boat Yard


Our yard is a members' facility not a commercial yard. As we have limited space we encourage members to make their stay there as short as possible. 

To encourage this and make quick turnaround more affordable we have a four-week slot which has no charge for members other than lift in/out fees. Staying over this time forfeits this free yardage and incurs escalating charges. Non-members can ask to be lifted in an emergency but, if they can be accommodated, they will be charged a non-members' rate. 

If you wish to work on a longer term project, you can apply to the committee for 'project status'. This requires a project plan to be submitted stipulating what you plan to do and when. Progress will be reviewed regularly.

Requesting Boat Movement

If as a member you wish to bring your boat into the yard, launch your boat or have her moved within the yard please fill in and submit an application form

All boats coming into the yard may only do so with the Yardmaster's permission.

Every boat movement application form must be accompanied by a copy of current and sufficient insurance policy (Byelaws 27c).

Trailers and cradles

No unused trailers/boat frames will allowed in the yard apart from those which the Club wish to use for their own purposes. - Byelaw 28 (a)

If your boat is not actually sitting on your trailer or cradle it should not be left in the yard. However the cradle or trailer, if suitable for general use, may be left in the yard with the Yardmaster's permission on the understanding that it may be used for other boats. Of course you may well find that when you need your cradle that it occupied by another member's boat.

All trailers left in the Yard and not required by the club must be removed from the Yard. Unserviceable and unnamed trailers may be disposed of without notice. - Byelaw 28(e)

All trailers and cradles left in the yard must be clearly marked with your or your boats name and contact number. Unmarked trailers may scraped or otherwise disposed of with out notice (who would we notify?).

Trailers in the yard must be maintained; tyres to be kept inflated, brakes operational. If you have a lock on your trailer a key clearly tagged with the boat name and your contact number must be left with the Yardmaster.
