TAMAR YACHT CLUB PRE RACE INFO
To the Owner / Skipper,
The Tamar Yacht Club along with the Marina Caretakers, Ron and Lionel, are looking forward to assisting everyone competing in the Launceston to Hobart 2015 yacht race.
Our members’ marina agreement requires boats in the marina to have liability insurance. As this is a requirement for the race we will only need the name of your insurers listed on the “Short Term Berthing Agreement” that is attached.
Members are also required to supply their own mooring ropes which have to be of an acceptable standard so you will be required to have and bring with you 2 bow lines, 2 stern lines and 2 springs of suitable lengths.
******We draw your attention to the type of mooring lines you use and advise that we recommend that discarded sailing ropes not be used as we have experienced this type of rope breaking when snatching does occur during inclement weather and if used it is at your own risk. The use of shore power cords is permitted within the marina, provided the cord has been tested and tagged to meet AS/NZS 3760 standards.
Charges will be at our Club Members rate of $15.00 a day as per our arrangement with the Derwent Sailing Squadron during your stay and we ask that you complete the “Short Term Berthing Agreement” in total indicating the expected dates of your stay together with your bankcard or visa card details and at the conclusion of your stay we will debit your card.
We also attach a plan of our marina and ask that on your arrival in the Tamar River if in daylight hours contact Ron or Lionel on mobile 0418-321-339 and you will be allocated a berth number and you will be able to proceed direct to that berth and tie your boat up, but if you arrive during the hours of darkness we ask that you tie up at the public pontoon and contact us in the morning for your berth allocation.
It is the Club’s requirement that all visitors who require short term berths in our marina complete the “Short Term Berthing Agreement” in total. This form should be completed as soon as possible and returned to the Tamar Yacht Club, 7 Park Street, Launceston or emailed as per the detail on the form. We wish to ensure we are able to accommodate all yachts requiring a berth.
