With the busy sailing season coming to an end, many boats will now be spending a lot of time in their marina pens and owners away. It's a good time to remind all owners to ensure that your vessels are correctly moored. Key things to look at. Ropes: Correct number, type & size and in good condition. Fenders: ample on all sides and secured correctly so as not to fall off. Power Leads: Not in the water. Please use the below link to read full details of How to Dock at RBYC
