Earthquake Damage to the Club

Underwater inspection of the piers has now been undertaken and structural engineers have inspected the fingers. Based on the advice we have received travel lift operations have resumed for light boats only e.g. up to approx 15 tonnes. Getting back to full operations will be dependant on the engineers final written report. We will advise when this has been received.
