Applications are now being accepted for the 2022-2023 berthing year. Please find the Ballot Application form, along with the Terms & Conditions and Fees below at the bottom of this page.
The Closing Date for applications is 12:00 noon on the 15th October 2021.
Following the closing date of applications, the Berthing Ballot will be held on Wednesday 3rd November.
1. Eligibility and Vessel Ownership
1.1. Each vessel must be fully owned by a Full Member (which shall include a Family Member) of the Club. Jointly owned vessels are eligible if, and only if, all part owners are Full Members of the Club. The licence is granted for the Boat identified in the application. No other boat may be moored in the allocated berth without express permission of the Club.
1.2. All owners must be resident in the British Isles and must have been Full Members of the Club for at least six months at the commencement of the relevant berthing year.
1.3. At the time of the ballot, the vessel must be entirely in the possession of the Member(s). Vessels that have not been completely built or the purchase of which has not been completed are not eligible.
1.4. A berth ballot application from an owner(s) with overdue debt(s) on their club account or who has not paid their subscriptions may not be considered for the ballot.
1.5. Club berths are provided primarily as a facility to Members who make regular use of their vessels in Club events, or who have offered their boats for club duties during the 2021 season. Ballot priority may therefore be given to applicants who cite this participation in the application form. Preferences will be given as follows:
1.5.1. Yachts - The first 30 yachts to be drawn in the ballot shall be yachts which have entered and participated in any three Club Events during the 2021 season, or which have been used as a Committee Vessel on any single occasion during the season.
1.5.2. RIBs - The first 8 Vessels to be drawn in the Ballot shall be taken from a list of those members whose boats have assisted in any event in the Club Calendar during the 2021 season - or entered and taken part in any one event in the Club Calendar in 2021. All successful berth holders are expected to assist with mark laying on at least one occasion during the following season.
1.5.3. Dry Berths – The first 10 yachts to be drawn in the Ballot shall be taken from a list of those Members whose yachts have entered and participated in any three events in the Club Calendar during the 2021 season.
1.6. The ensuing places in the ballot shall be drawn from all applicants. Places shall be allocated in the order in which boats are drawn in the ballot where possible. However, length, draft and width will be taken into account, and it is possible that a boat may not be allocated a place even when a boat drawn later in the ballot is offered a place.
Following the Ballot, a full list of applicants in drawn order will be published in the Club. Members will be notified of application success, or otherwise, following the subsequent Berth Allocation process.
The Holding Deposit must then be paid by successful applicants by 12:00 noon on 30th November 2021 to retain the berth.
The remainder of the fee shall be paid by 12:00 on 28th February 2022, otherwise the allocated berth will be forfeited and reallocated.
