Visitor Berthing and Mooring at QYC

 

QUOILE YACHT CLUB
VISITOR INFORMATION PACK


Welcome to the Quoile Yacht Club and to our Pontoon and mooring facilities.


The members of Quoile Yacht Club are proud of their facilities, both ashore and afloat. These have been provided for, and improved by the Club over a number of years.


The pontoon facility has a high ongoing maintenance cost and it for this reason that the Club has suggested a donation from visitors who wish to make use of the facility.


This suggested donation is £10 for each overnight stay. In addition if you wish to use the power supply an additional donation of £5 is requested.


For shorter stays a discretionary donation would be appreciated.
Please place your donation in the envelope provided, together with the Safety Information sheet, and place in the Box adjacent to this Notice board.


There is no donation requested for boats taking part in Quoile Yacht Club promoted sailing events (eg Spring Series, Regatta, Two Day….)
Visitors will understand that Quoile Yacht Club Members have priority over berthing allocations on the pontoon.


Visitors Moorings. Moorings at the outer end of the bay marked with a V, are available free of charge. Please check that you have sufficient depth of water and you are satisfied that it is adequate for your boat. These moorings are checked annually but the Club accepts no responsibility as to the adequacy of the mooring.


Pontoon Berthing Procedure. There may be no club officers available on arrival so the system is based on self adherence to the rules and honesty. Mooring may be on either side of the pontoon, as close as possible to any other boat already there. From time to time this may mean moving position slightly to leave maximum amount of room for other boats. It may also mean having to raft up or tie alongside other boats.


Visiting Clubs that have made prior arrangements with the Club will normally moor in a reserved area, normally on the west side of the pontoon. Please moor in this area only.
Please comply the notice at the top of the pontoon walkway which shows where club safety boats, day boats and dinghies are permitted to berth.


The west side of the outside/end pontoon is reserved for unloading and loading only. Maximum time 1 hour.


There are power supply points on the pontoon and if available, these may be used, subject to the donation mentioned above.
Water taps and hoses are provided, please coil up hose after use.
Visitors are not permitted to leave a boat at the pontoon overnight unless someone is on board.


Dinghies should not be left alongside on the pontoon. Please use the dinghy mooring area.


In the event of unsuitable weather conditions, the Moorings Officer (or in his absence a Flag Officer) may request that the pontoons are cleared of some or all boats. This is to avoid damage to the pontoon structure and its moorings.


Club Facilities. The Club relies on the bar income and encourages visitors to avail of the facility. It is normally open on Saturdays during the season, for functions and events. Opening hours are published in the club house.


The Club site is covered by CCTV, actively controlled by our security contractor.


The main Club gates operate on a member card system. If you wish to leave the site you will need to borrow a gate key from a member.
The Club has a Wi Fi facility. The password is ‘variable’.
The Club web site www.quoileyc.com carries all club social and racing information.
