After reviewing guidance from RYAS and the Scottish Government Covid 19 Road Map the Club has agreed that it is now permissible to move the Craning In date forward from May 8th to Saturday May 1st.

The tide height for May 1st is considerably higher than May 8th which will lessen the likelihood of grounding as boats proceed down the creek.

High Tide is 3:33pm and craning will normally begin around 2 hours prior to this time. However please give yourselves plenty of time to get down to prep your boats and attend the compulsory Covid 19 briefing which will be held at 12:30pm on the grass area in the dinghy park. Your name and contact details will be taken and listed at this briefing.

Please note that the maximum number of persons permitted to attend Craning In is 30 in total, including volunteer boat shufflers and the crane driver, so please keep your crew to an absolute minimum.

It would be helpful if you have a handheld VHF radio with you. We will use channel M1 or 37A.

If you are not craning in and your boat is currently parked in the centre space between the winter wall and the Creek ( between other boats, so to speak) or it is in any way obstructing the path the crane will take, please kindly make arrangements to have your boat moved prior to May 1st.

Should you have any further queries please don’t hesitate to ring me on 07896628346 or email me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

In the meantime I look forward to seeing you all on May 1st.
