After deliberation, the Committee have set a date for crane in, subject to weather. Last year, crane in took place on 26th April, which was regarded as rather late by a number of members.
So crane in 2014 is scheduled for Monday 31st March.
High Water is at 12:22 BST with a predicted height of 10.1m.
In the event of unsuitable weather (the crane cannot operate above a certain wind speed), the following day Tuesday 1st April has HW at 13:03 with a predicted height of 10.0m. This would be the 2nd choice.
These dates still leave time for crane in later in April if the weather is really bad, and it is hoped that most members will welcome the earlier date. A list will be posted in the clubhouse; please sign up if you want your boat craned in (or out!). We hope that it will be possible to keep the price at £65 per boat as at crane out.
There will be a Working Party before crane in. As usual, if more members help we can really make a difference to the appearance of the site and improve the facilities we have. Please come if you can!
