Health and Safety statement
There is a strict no smoking policy on any of the boats; drinking alcohol while the courses are running is forbidden (no boozing and cruising). No swimming is allowed in the marina due to the strong tides and movement of boats. Please be careful on the pontoons as they can be slippery when wet, life jackets will be worn at all times while on the boats. The showers and toilet areas can also have slippery floors please pay attention to any health and safety warning signs around the marina… For a full copy of our health and safety document speak to a member of staff and they will get one for you.
