On Monday 27th we had some gusty North – North Easterlies out on the Marina.
During an inspection, it was apparent that several boats did not have appropriate lines for such winds, in particular no spring lines for such conditions, meaning the boats were only held by relatively short breast lines. Such lines have minimal stretch, increasing the likelihood of them breaking or pulling out cleats/hardpoints on the boat.
Can all boat owners please ensure your boat is properly secured for all wind directions. If you have any questions, please contact Marina staff.
